Hal Foster avec Prince Valiant Vol. 14: 1963-1964
In the first story, King Arthur sends Val to North Wales to thwart an attack by King Cidwick, while back in Camelot, Mordred plans a scandal that will break the Fellowship of the Round Table. Fortunately, a battle-weary Val finds some minor respite in the melee known as the Spring tournament, and, for the first time since coming to Camelot, our hero is crowned Grand Champion! The festivities are interrupted as an invading army of savage Saxons attack in the Battle of Baddon Hill, and the only one who can save King Arthur and the Knights of Camelot is Val’s son, Prince Arn. This volume closes with Val returning to his homeland of Thule to rest only to find a guerilla war waging against his father, King Aguar.
Hal Foster (1892-1982) created Prince Valiant in 1937. Though remaining involved with the strip until his death in 1982, Foster handed the bulk of the scripting and art chores over to his longtime assistant, John Cullen Murphy, in 1971.
