    1. I m going to turn into a modern day Don Quixote if I keep reading this series The chivalry and knighthood rivalries is so awesome.Prince Valiant is deeply in love with this woman he barely knows but the woman is engaged to be married to another knight named Arn He comes head to head with the knight they are both on horseback on opposing ends of a narrow bridge Val charges and knocks Arn into the water Arn s heavy armour causes him to sink to the bottom but Val rescues him saying If you are to di [...]


    2. Prince Valiant Vol 2 1939 1940 has all the virtues of its predecessor lively adventure, painterly colors and fine scale detail in action and rest But where the first volume revolved around Camelot, this installment sees the titular prince roam Europe in search of adventureVal seems to grow through these pages, replacing a bit of his carefree mayhem with the responsibilities of leadership and loss He s still surprising savage to modern eyes and cavalier about his safety as well He ll kill for spo [...]


    3. Just finished this the other night and totally loved it This book is a part of a long running set where each Volume reprints 2 full years worth of Newspaper Comic Strips Of course this one is PRINCE VALIANT.It s funny, as a little kid I always thought, Prince Valiant is Lame But, as an Adult who loves comic strip history AND art, the artwork is so beautiful to look at that it drew me in Then, you start to realize that the story lines are really good too Also, there s a very strange way that time [...]


    4. I enjoyed the first two years of Prince Valiant in Volume 1 so much that I eventually decided to purchase a copy of Volume 2 Once again we get glorious artwork, superb draftsmanship, excellent colors, and the terrific, masterly narrative of Prince Valiant s continuing adventures The hardbound editions by Fantagraphics Books are outstanding Great stuff.


    5. How can you not love Hal Foster s work Stunning apart, swashbuckling adventure, knights and battles this has it all


    6. For some reason, Foster s work is remembered mostly for an unattractive haircut, but both his story telling and art is top notch I vaguely remember being put off by re prints of Prince Valiant in the comic section of the Sunday paper, but here in this beautiful over sized, everything is full bore pulp Foster deserves mention in the same breath as Kirby, Howard, and Dumas.


    7. Val s adventures continue as he saves a kingdom from the Huns and visits the once mighty Rome Foster s storytelling and art are improved from the already great first years, especially in his backgrounds and use of color.


    8. This classic adventure comic series continues to impress me with it s incredibly beautiful illustrations and captivating storyline Prince Val gets knighted by King Arthur and manages to save much of Europe from the bloodthirsty Huns and he s still a teenager Great stuff.


    9. The Prince and his buddies head to Rome following the fall of the Roman Empire and end up tangling with some pretty nasty Huns But the Prince sets them straight and stops The West s dissent into barbarianism Not too shabby for a 98 page graphic novel



    10. Can not wait to start the next book in the series Beautiful, beautiful artwork and wonderful adventure to enjoy from your favorite easy chair.



    11. Comic book of Prince Valiant The plotline was okay Although I liked reading this for the classic historical aspect I probably won t read the other volumes.
