”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.

Screen-worn ”hero” costume pants worn by Mark Hamill in his career-defining role as Luke Skywalker in the 1977 epic film ”Star Wars”, the first in the groundbreaking trilogy. As one of the top-grossing films of all time, George Lucas’ first film in the successful series won six Oscars, among many other awards. In a galaxy far, far away, Hamill donned these iconic pants as the Jedi Knight of all Jedi Knights, wearing the costume pants throughout much of the film. Sand-colored ”cotton drill” Levi’s pants are purposely distressed to display wear, with dirt to back right pocket and in spots to front of pant legs. In fact, in an accompanying article, Mark Hamill said of the pants, ”By the way, those pants I wore were just bleached Levi’s with the tag still in them.” Pants measure 29” waist x 37” in length with two 6” slits up each side. Customized by the famous London costumier, Bermans & Nathans, original tag sewn to inseam reads: ”Bermans & Nathans / 40 Camden St., / London N.W. 1” tag with a ”Mark Hamill / 10490 Luke / Star Wars” printed in type beneath it. Very good condition overall. Also with tags attached from both Christie’s, where the pants were originally auctioned, and Sotheby’s, from its 1998 auction.  Sold for $60,000.
