    Hal Foster Prince Valiant Sunday Comic Strip, Tier 3, Framed Original Art, dated 4-18-48 (King Features Syndicate, 1948). Prince Valiant and his lady, Aleta, anticipate a jolly holiday in Ireland. But menace lurks in the closing panel. This picturesque gem is the final tier (panels 7-9) of what Foster had designed as an immense Sunday-funnies spread, designed to fill an entire broadsheet page. The red-ink lines in the panels indicate "color holds," a technique used to give the printed page a more nearly painterly look. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Framed dimensions, 31.5" x 17.25". The board is scored vertically with a crack in the last panel. Other than that and a missing patch of lettering (stained), the art is in Very Good condition.
