    Volume 43 - 1st printing. "Blood and Tears!" By Hal Foster. The greatest adventure epic since Beowulf continues in this full-color series. Hal Foster's Prince Valiant, with its thrilling continuities of a noble knight in the days of King Arthur, began in newspapers in 1937 and continues to this day. Fantagraphics' deluxe, full-color library editions of Prince Valiant were initially intended to end with 2000's Volume 40, the final volume in which Foster was the chief architect of the strip's visual look. Due to overwhelming public demand, however, we are continuing the series, reprinting strips written and roughed-out by Foster and finished by Foster's prodigious assistant, John Cullen Murphy. Murphy, who had been quietly assisting Foster for several years, actively took over the bulk of the drawing chores in 1971 and immediately developed a fan following himself (although, for the most part, your average newspaper reader couldn't discern a difference between Foster and Cullen Murphy's styles). Each volume of Prince Valiant features close to year's worth of full-page Sunday strips. Softcover, 9-in. x 13-in., 48 pages, full color. Cover price $16.95.
