Overview

The greatest adventure epic since Beowulf continues in this perennial full-color series.Each volume in the series presents close to a year's worth of strips per volume in an oversized format showcasing the strip's spectacular color pages. In Vol. 47 (1977-1978), while traveling through the Middle East, Queen Aleta is ambushed, but saved at the last minute by a mysterious woman who brings her to a hidden valley—home of Petropolis, the City of the Amazons. In his search for Aleta, Valiant discovers the same secret passage, but so do his followers, perhaps endangering the peaceful isolation of the Amazon people... At this point in Prince Valiant's run, Hal Foster's assistant, John Cullen Murphy, who had been quietly assisting Foster for several years, was well into his first decade of drawing the strip over Foster's writing and roughs. Continuing Foster's tradition of meticulous artwork, Murphy was developing his own fan following. 48 pages full-color.

Author Biography: Hal Foster created Prince Valiant in 1937. He passed away in 1982. John Cullen Murphy, a six-time recipient of the National Cartoonists Society's "Best Story Strip," continues to draw Prince Valiant, while his son, Cullen Murphy, writes the strip in between serving as the Managing Editor for The Atlantic. He lives in Connecticut with his wife Joan.
