    Hal Foster Prince Valiant #1696 Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 8-10-69 (King Features Syndicate, 1969). Hal Foster could put more detail and linework in a single panel than some artists did in an entire strip! Check out Panel 4 to see what we mean. His incredibly meticulous detail was partially due to the enormous scale at which he worked. It allowed him to cut loose and really show what a master draftsman he was. This Sunday was created on three sections of Bristol board, each as big as your average Sunday, by itself! Created in ink over graphite with a combined image area of approximately 22.75" x 34". The toned boards have been conjoined with tape on the reverse side. The logo is a toned paste-up, and all text is paste-up. These have discolored and there is glue residue around the edges. There is a stain in Panel 5, and all sections have frame burn from a previous framing. In Good condition. Comes with a newspaper tear sheet of the printed strip.
