Prince Valiant HC Vol 16: 1967-1968
Written and illustrated by Hal Foster
112 pages; hard cover; full color
Hal Foster's Prince Valiant continues as one of the greatest adventure comics ever conceived and Fantagraphics' reprinting is the loveliest treatment of the strip in the history of publishing. In Volume 16, Prince Valiant tracks down a missing heir only to become a mentor to the reluctant leader. There is in-fighting amongst family members and knights in the Hall of Champions, young Arn goes berserk under the incantation of the feral forest people, Aleta plots against the greedy governors of the Misty Isles and the royal children discover romance.
