The twelfth volume of Fantagraphics’ award-winning series begins with Prince Valiant attempting to rescue Sir Gawain from prison. Most of the first half of this volume finds our two heroes fighting bullies, brigands and a despicable Earl, but events soon turn very serious. Charged by King Arthur, Prince Valiant sets out on a quest to find the legendary Holy Grail. Should his mission fail the very foundation of the Fellowship of the Table Round is at stake. This volume concludes with the Misty Isles under attack, and leaves Queen Aleta perilously close to death. Bonus features include an introduction by legendary comics artist Neal Adams and a gallery of Foster’s rare Johnson Outboard Motor advertising art, annotated by comics historian Brian M. Kane. With pages scanned directly from Foster’s personal collection of color engraver’s proofs, this is the finest reproduction of one of the greatest and most influential adventure strips of all time. Full color throughout.
