Our tenth volume finds our band of heroes making their way back to the Kingdom of Thule by way of Constantinople and Eastern Russia. Soon they are attacked by a tribe of barbarians who kidnap Aleta for the great Dragada Khan who wants to make her one of his wives. After nearly being killed in battle, Valiant returns to his homeland only to find the threat of hunger hovers over Thule. As Val explores new ways of feeding the kingdom's growing populace, raiders threaten the lives of his family and friends. The volume ends with Val's return to Camelot, a tournament of champions, and the threat of new treachery in Cornwall. This volume also includes an introduction by legendary comics artist Timothy Truman, and a special gallery containing more of Hal Foster's incredible Mountie paintings annotated by comics historian Brian M. Kane.

248-page monochrome 5.75" x 8.5" softcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-751-2

This comedic, sci-fi space epic stars three heroes enlisted to travel the galaxy in search of twelve magical gems. Their benefactor — an eccentric and reclusive scientist named Dr. Z — doesn’t actually know what the twelve gems do once obtained, but myths, theories, and rumors abound throughout the galaxy. The three heroes — with some reluctance — choose to undertake the mysterious task and regard it as a sort of paid vacation and an escape from their shady pasts. Graphic novelist Lane Milburn delivers a dense, action-packed follow-up to his Xeric Award-winning debut, Death Trap.

In our ninth volume of the breathtakingly drawn, furiously plotted Sunday comic strip inspired by the King Arthur legends, Prince Valiant quashes a druid's sly attempt to turn a village from the Christian god. A call for peace in Ireland is fightin' words — until Val dethrones a hot-headed king. A mysterious message from Merlin must be decoded to save King Arthur. And, as this volume concludes, Val and Gawain embark on a pilgrimage to the holy city of Jerusalem while Queen Aleta returns to the Misty Isles, where treacherous nobles seek her throne — and her death.

Prince Valiant Vol. 9: 1953-1954 by Hal Foster - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Prince ValiantpreviewsHal FosterComing Attractions 9 Apr 2014 5:08 PM

The next volume of our New York Times best-selling series collecting Hal Foster's magnificent comic strip, Prince Valiant Vol. 9: 1953-1954 is due in late June/early July and brings more stories of mystery, adventure, treachery, romance, and humor in the Arthurian age, with Foster's breathtaking artwork immaculately reproduced from original engraver's proofs as always.

In our downloadable preview, Val becomes a literal iconoclast to bring Christianity to a pagan village! But then he falls in the mud, indirectly causes a deadly forest fire, and sulks until his wife beats some sense into him. Their young son Prince Arn embarks on a perilous quest with his trusty companion Sir Gawain, and they encounter Sir Gawain. Then things get serious and Val and Aleta prepare to depart on separate missions of their own.

For a limited time, if you pre-order this volume, you can add Volume 10 (due in Fall) to your order at a 20% discount — do it today!

"Medieval swordplay and adventure have never been as glorious as in Foster's Sunday-only comic strip.... Prince Valiant is one of the best-drawn comics ever, and this new edition does ample justice to its achievement." - Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) 

"If you've never read Prince Valiant at all, I highly implore you to give it a shot with Fantagraphics' current hardcover reprints. They're huge, beautiful - the best these strips have looked since their original publication, if not exceeding them. They're world-spanning adventure comics of the highest order - in a pantheon of titles ranging from Corto Maltese to Kamandi to Tintin." - Joe Keatinge
