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.
