The latest volume collecting the weekly full-color Prince Valiant Sunday pages — by common agreement the greatest adventure comic stip in history. Galan, the youngest of Prince Valiant’s sons, begins the long journey to knighthood, bringing both shame and honor upon himself. But the old order is threatened with collapse as Val, deprived of his Singing Sword, is enslaved in the Berber salt mines, a death watch has begun for the bedridden King Arthur, and the monarch’s half-brother Mordred plots to usurp the throne. And as if that weren’t enough: Aleta investigates a murder in Cornwall.
Also: a tour of Prince Valiant’s England by Cullen Murphy, son of John Cullen Murphy and editor at Vanity Fair and The Atlantic, who begins his long tenure as Prince Valiant scripter with this volume. Plus: Todd Goldberg’s examination of the historical reality behind the Prince Valiant strip continues.
