Vol. 20: 1975-1976 last edited by Billy Batson on 11/05/19 12:44PM View full history

In Volume 20, Prince Valiant recounts an adventure from the days when he was squire to Sir Gawain, then proceeds to the Baltic trading center of Thessalriga, which he defends against treachery and a pirate invasion! Creator Hal Foster’s art returns for the series’ 2000th strip, recalling the high points of the Prince Valiant legend.

During a journey back to her Misty Isles kingdom, Aleta is hypnotized and abducted by a wizard, but Val pursues them to the evil Hashida’s cavernous domain, only to learn that Aleta is capable of rescuing herself. Aleta’s younger sister Helene is gambled away by her husband to a Corsair mercenary, drawing Prince Valiant and his Singing Sword into a deadly duel. And in between battles, romance has its way with kings, wizards, and slaves.

Also: a large gallery of Hal Foster’s gorgeous art for the 1930 U.S. Naval Academy yearbook, The Lucky Bag. Plus, an interview with Mad artist Angelo Torres, who assisted Prince Valiant artist John Cullen Murphy on the Big Ben Bolt strip.
