    Description

    Hal Foster - Prince Valiant Sunday Comic Strip Original Art, dated 11-5-39 (King Features Syndicate, 1939). Hal Foster's magnificent draftsmanship shines in Prince Valiant Sunday #145. In this episode, Val joins a band of liberators who plot to overthrow the cruel tyrant, Piscaro. Soon after, even disguised as a hun, Val is recognized by Piscaro's minions, and the final panel featuring his struggle against capture is a classic shot of the proud warrior in battle. A special treat are the four portraits of the Liberators at each corner of the strip. Hal Foster inscribed and signed the art in panel four. The image area of the entire Sunday measures approximately 26" x 34.5", and each incredibly detailed panel measures approximately 8" x 10". The page was cut between panel tiers one and two. The art has had moderate restoration, and the title lettering is a recent replacement, otherwise the art is in Excellent condition.
