    Hal Foster Prince Valiant Sunday Comic Strip #2158 Preliminary Artwork Original Art dated 6-18-78 (1978). Although it's well-known that Hal Foster stopped drawing his classic strip Prince Valiant in 1971, it is less well-known that he continued to supply rough pencil layouts to his replacement artist John Cullen Murphy well into the late 1970s. This is an amazing look below the inks to pure Hal Foster pencils on this classic comic strip! These smaller scale roughs (and his "roughs" are far more detailed than some artists finished pencils) were used by Murphy to design the finished piece. Numbered 2158 and dated June 18, this points to being published in 1978. Graphite on what appears to be regular paper, it has an image area of approximately 6.75" x 10". Signed by Foster in the bottom panel. Glass front framed, it's in Excellent condition.
