In our ninth volume, Arn tries his hand at being a warrior, Merlin is bewitched by Nimue, and Tillicum and Boltar have a son named Hatha — the first inter-racial baby "born" in comics. Most of the second half of this volume follows Gawain and Val’s pilgrimage to the holy city of Jerusalem and Queen Aleta's return to the Misty Isles, where treacherous nobles seek her throne... and her death. Also featuring a look at Prince Valiant's 1954 escapades on both the large and small screens by Foster scholar Brian M. Kane. As with all the previous volumes in this highly acclaimed series, these pages are reproduced for the first time from Foster's personal set of color engraver's proofs, the most impeccably produced Prince Valiant series ever produced.

Praise for the series:

"That Foster was the most virtuosic comics artist of his time, there is some merit to the claim." – Steven Heller, The New York Times

“Hal Foster was an illustrator in the grand tradition of Arthur Rackham and Howard Pyle.... Every panel packs a one-two punch.” – Vanity Fair

"Foster's meticulously detailed, painstakingly researched, vividly realistic, and often breathtaking illustration made him one of the most revered artists in the comic field." – Library Journal

"One of the greatest comic strips of all time and a peak in visual splendor and breath-taking adventure, the story of Prince Valiant's 30+ year odyssey is getting a marvelous presentation in Fantagraphics' series of books." – The Huffington Post
