More superlative medieval adventure from Hal Foster. The cover image gives you some idea of what this stuff looks like. This volume sees the first format shift, when paper shortages led to the creation of a new bottom strip, which could be cut if space did not permit, costing the regular feature about a third of its former space.

Val is kind of a hothead... but his adventures are great fun and the art is classically gorgeous.
More high adventure from Prince Valiant. It's still fun stuff, with amazing art, but is the first volume for me that felt like the hero was re-covering old ground. I like what seems to be foreshadowing of Camelot's fall, but I wanted a bit more variety.
While there are several adventures in this volume the most interesting starts at the very end where we see the very beginning of Val's "wooing" of his future wife. Quite un-PC as he ends up dragging her away by her hair.
I could live without the "Mediaeval Times" accompanying strip, but "Prince Valiant" remains a stunning visual feast, and an engrossing, fun storyline. Recommended for any fan of adventure comics.
