    John Cullen Murphy and Hal Foster - Prince Valiant Sunday Comic Strip Original Art, dated 11-1-70 (King Features Syndicate, 1970). When Hal Foster decided to retire from his beloved Prince Valiant strip, it turned out to be a long and gradual process that took over ten years to complete! Working from Foster's detailed scripts and penciled breakdowns, John Cullen Murphy finished this handsome Sunday, and the strip is from the first year of his stint on the feature. Murphy was in peak form on this Sunday, the figure drawing and background detail are first-rate. The influence of Hal Foster's hand can be seen in the panel compositions. The page was cut between each panel tier and then taped together on the back of the paper. The conjoined tiers combine to form an image area measuring approximately 23" x 34". There is some minor staining and loosening of the title logo and captions; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition. John Cullen Murphy has signed the art just below the final panel's lower border. This is a superb example of a John Cullen Murphy Prince Valiant!
