After his long sojourn in the Mediterranean, Prince Valiant is back in Britain, where he takes on a new, intricate mission on behalf of King Arthur. Here, Valiant finds himself in the middle of a conflict between Saxon settlers and violent Viking raiders. Gawain’s return journey to Camelot is fraught with misadventure as he is beset by jealous romantic rivals, a marriage-minded widow, and a thieving sorcerer. Young Galan goes on a hunt to capture the fabled unicorn, and Arn, after losing his horse in a Welsh bog, is enslaved and held for ransom. While all of these quests take place, romance envelops Camelot like a plague. This volume also includes a supplementary section of rarities and extras, curated by Foster historian Brian M. Kane. Volume 17 of Hal Foster’s Prince Valiant lovingly continues Fantagraphics’s lush reprinting of one of the most magnificent comic strips of all-time.
