Prince Valiant meets with more adventures and avoids sudden death miraculously in this installment of the classic comics. I can't praise the artist enough for his wonderful detailed illustrations that capture his characters' emotions with minimal strokes of the pen. As always, recommended. ( )

As with all the proceeding editions this one is beautiful. Foster's art continues to excel. I enjoyed the preface talking about the advertising world Foster worked in and the popularity of the Royal Canadian Mounties in advertising that Foster participated in popularizing. I enjoyed finding out about the Silver Lady award, an award in it's day on par with the Oscars but now discontinued. It was awarded to Foster in 1952.

If you have enjoyed the previous Fantagraphic editions you will enjoy this one too. ( )
