    Hal Foster Prince Valiant Sunday Comic Strip #112 Original Art dated 4-2-39 (King Features Syndicate, 1939). Here's an incredibly rare Sunday from the thirties. In episode #112, the first installment of "The Cave of Time" story arc, Hal Foster spotlights a day in the life of Prince Valiant and his kingdom. Often referred to as "The Peace Page", this magnificent piece is really nine stand-alone paintings. It's more than a "Day In the Life Of..." - it depicts nine phases or cycles of a lifetime. This exemplary Sunday, perhaps the finest of its type and definitely the greatest we've ever offered at Heritage, is filled with spectacular vistas, along with exceptional interior and costume detailing. War, peace, governing, physical training, relaxation, romance, and reflection - the life of a prince packed into nine panels! A sterling example of Foster's artistic prowess, this Sunday contains all the elements of the strip's narrative in a single example. Framed and matted, with an image area of 26" x 34", the work is in Excellent condition. From The Art of the Funnies Collection.
