    Description

    Hal Foster Prince Valiant Sunday Comic Strip #289 featuring Boltar Original Art dated 8-23-42 (King Features Syndicate, 1942). This early Prince Valiant Sunday, #289, features many of the highlights any Hal Foster fan would have on his "wish-list" -- Vikings, sailing scenes, outstanding figure drawing and panel compositions, a character stamp of Boltar, and five lighthearted portraits of Val. This Sunday is the final episode from the "Homeward Bound" storyline. Hal Foster was elected to membership in Great Britain's Royal Society of Arts, an honor very few Americans can claim. The Duke of Windsor called Prince Valiant the "greatest contribution to English literature in the past hundred years." The strip, one of the most successful adventure series of all time, won the prestigious Banshees' "Silver Lady" award in 1952, and the National Cartoonists Society's "Reuben" award in 1957, as well as its "Gold Key" award in 1977. This Sunday, inscribed and autographed to famed Mutt and Jeff cartoonist Al Smith, has an image area of 26" x 34". The first panel tier was cut from the page, and a lettering correction line in panel three is missing; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition.
