    Hal Foster - Prince Valiant Sunday Comic Strip Original Art, dated 5-13-51 (King Features Syndicate, 1951). From the "Return to Rome" storyline, this sequence is notable in that Val, "properly garbed and barbered," loses his trademark pageboy haircut for a Roman styling. Val is crusading to carry the message of Christianity to Thule and seeks an audience with the Pope. As a side-note, Arf, Val's squire, referred to in the first panel, was also Foster's nickname for his own son. This superb Sunday is a splendid example of Hal Foster's intricately detailed drawing style, one that will certainly be a welcome addition to any original art collection. The Sunday has an approximate image area measuring 23.5" x 33.5". The strip was cut between panel tiers one and two, and other than a missing lettering correction in panel six, the strip is in Excellent condition.
