”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.

”Prince Valiant” Comic Strip by Hal Foster From 5 October 1941

Original “Prince Valiant in the Days of King Arthur” strip in two parts, dated 5 October 1941. In this chapter, we witness the wizard Belsatan cast a powerful spell for the return of his wife and its dramatic aftermath (which is “beyond description!”). In earlier action, Belsatan had concocted a scheme to use Val to get rid of his beautiful, but nagging wife, Acidia. The schemed worked, but the wizard soon grew lonely, leading to the action featured in this strip, a fantastic example by Hal Foster, the strip’s creator, working at the absolute top of his game. Foster inscribes the strip to his “favorite comic artist ‘Chick’ Young”. Hand-drawn strip measures 29″ x 15″ and 29″ x 22″. Both parts of the strip are mounted, with very light toning, overall very good to near fine. From the estate of “Blondie” creator, Chic Young. Sold for $27,981.
