    Hal Foster Prince Valiant Hand Colored Sunday Comic Strip #1364 Original Art dated 3-31-63 (King Features Syndicate, 1963). The moment of victory is at hand as evil King Cidwic has entered Sir Kay's base, but Valiant has not given up the fight, and the two opposing leaders draw swords into armed combat. With some help from Arn, the Singing Sword claims another life. Even in the 1960s, Harold Foster's meticulous, highly detailed artwork put most of his contemporaries to shame, and this superlative hand colored Sunday is a perfect example. We sold the episode prior to this one (which was not hand colored) for just over $12,000. The image area of this episode from the "War Clouds" story arc measures 22.75" x 34". This Sunday was cut between the top tier and the large splash panel on the bottom, and there is some slight staining and overall aging; otherwise, this magnificent piece is in Very Good condition. PLEASE NOTE: the hand coloring done on this original artwork was not done by Hal Foster.
