    Description

    Hal Foster - Prince Valiant Sunday Comic Strip Original Art, dated 8-11-46 (King Features Syndicate, 1946). This spectacular "Prince Valiant" Sunday features the Robin Hood-like Hugh-the Fox, as Val enlists Hugh's help in a coming battle against Saxon invaders. The woodland tableau recalls the magnificent forest scenes of 1938's "The Adventures of Robin Hood," starring Errol Flynn. The red lines in panels indicate "color holds," a technique that Foster used very sparingly and to great effect, giving the finished product a more "painterly" look. The linework in this strip here is superb, on a par with the best works of any of the classic illustrators. The Sunday has an approximate image area measuring 24" x 34.5". The strip was cut between panel tiers one and two, and other than a missing lettering correction in panel five, the art is in Excellent condition.
