”Prince Valiant” Sunday Artwork by Hal Foster From 1939 — Perhaps the Most Recognizable Artwork by Hal Foster From ”Prince Valiant”, the Majestic Andelkrag Castle

One of the greatest pieces of artwork by Hal Foster in his career, the original artwork for the 120th ”Prince Valiant” Sunday comic strip from 28 May 1939. In this instantly recognizable piece — featured on the cover of Fantagraphics’ ”Prince Valiant Vol. 2: 1939-1940” and in numerous ”Prince Valiant” publications — Val sees the foreboding castle of Andelkrag in person, surrounded by Huns as they prepare to attack it. The six panel strip measures 26” x 34.5”, (the large Andelkrag panel measures 17” x 21” by itself), with incredible detail showing the seemingly impregnable fortress, the mountains behind it, the flames roiling up aside it and Prince Valiant standing upon a hillside, gazing at its beauty and enormity. In this strip, Val makes his approach and plunges into the river moat at darkness, to find a fire-raft built by the Huns in order to destroy Andelkrag’s bridge. As Prince Valiant destroys their handiwork, the Huns vow revenge in return. Artwork is signed by Foster on the second panel, inscribed to ”Edward W. Larson / with friendly greetings / Hal Foster”. With King Features Syndicate, Inc. label on fifth panel, with 1939 copyright. The date of 28 May 1939 appears on the fourth panel, along with ”120”, the number of this Prince Valiant strip in the life of the series. Artwork is mounted to board and matted to a size of 33” x 41.5”, with matting strips separating the panels. With minute amount of soiling, artwork is in near fine condition. Accompanied by the color newsprint of this artwork and two ”Prince Valiant” books featuring this strip. Sold for $70,461.

Original ”Prince Valiant in the Days of King Arthur” strip in two parts, dated 6 Mach 1937, the 4th strip in the series which launched on 13 February 1937. In this large 12-panel strip, we witness Prince Valiant grow from a boy – stranded on the Fens Marshes – to a young man who hunts and provides food for the exiles. His teacher is a young native boy who shows him how to hunt and also escape death by the ”marsh lizard”, the superbly drawn creature which preys upon the young men in the last half of the strip. Hal Foster additionally draws an image of Prince Valiant’s face on the back of the strip, and inscribes the first portion of the strip in pencil above the panels, ”To Douglas Newton with best wishes for his success as an artist / Hal Foster” and then additionally, ”I send you this early one because it has a dragon in it – hope you can clean it up”. The 1937 King Features Syndicate label appears on the 11th panel, along with the date of 6 March. A publisher’s sticker also appears under the 10th panel. First portion of strip measures 29” x 21” and second portion measures approximately 29” x 20.25” with an irregular top edge. Strip is in good condition with some dampstaining that mostly appears on the margins and can be framed out. Strip also has some foxing, toning and tape remnants to margin. Artwork itself is still bold and clean. First panel is a cut-out portion taped to the strip on the verso, ostensibly a change to the strip by Foster before publication. An excellent, very early example of Hal Foster’s classic Prince Valiant. Sold for $44,291.

”Krazy Kat” Sunday Comic Strip by George Herriman From 7 November 194

”Krazy Kat” large Sunday comic strip, dated 7 November 1943. Created by cartoonist George Herriman, Krazy Kat depicts the unlikely love triangle of a cat, a mouse and a dog: Krazy Kat, Ignatz Mouse and Officer Bull Pupp. Krazy Kat’s naive, unrequited love for Ignatz is consistently and unceremoniously rewarded by bricks hurled to the back of his head, thrown by the cantankerous mouse. Officer Bull Pupp does his best to protect Krazy Kat, whom he not so secretly loves, from Ignatz’ relentless brick attacks. True to form, this hand-drawn 1943 Sunday strip features Officer Bull Pupp’s unsuccessful attempt to shield Krazy Kat from an inevitable brick attack at the hands of Ignatz. With a distinctly Southwestern visual style, Krazy Kat has long been a favorite of comic fans and such notables as E.E. Cummings, William Randolph Hearst, Jack Kerouac and Pablo Picasso. Strip measures 16.5” by 25”. Mounted to board but in otherwise remarkably near fine condition with only a hint of toning. From the estate of ”Blondie” creator Chic Young. Sold for $22,878.
