This volume contains the years considered by many Prince Valiant connoisseurs to feature Foster's best work. In other words, the best of the best. Regardless of where you stand in this debate, you'll find yourself gazing at page after page of truly superb comics. Foster's work on Prince Valiant set the bar for illustrative quality in comics and it has held ever since. Lou Fine, Al WIlliamson, Roy Krenkel, Frank Frazetta, Wallace Wood, Neal Adams, Mark Schulz and countless others looked to Foster for inspiration. And, as if this weren't already enough, another highlight of this volume is the erudite introduction by PictureBox publisher – and newly installed co-editor of The Comics Journal – Dan Nadel. Once you've feasted your eyes on this PDF preview (which also includes Nadel's intro), you'll begin (but only begin, mind you, as a computer screen simply is NOT the way to view this work) to understand why.
