The cliffhanger from Volume 20 — Prince Valiant, Sir Gawain, Pierre, and the rescued Sir Basil facing the wrath of a Ben Al Rasch's vengeful mob on the road to Bethlehem — whips Volume 21 into fast and furious action right from the start. Then, don't miss what transpires when a jealous suitor of Queen Aleta hires two hit-men (!) — Bodex the Man-Slayer and a blood-hungry pirate — to off the Prince! Soon after, Valiant thirsts for Thule, home and family, and launches on an epic trek through Eastern Europe to his father, King Aguar, at Vikingsholm. Full of battles, intrigue, new friends, and new enemies full of greed and avarice, Prince Valiant Volume 21 is a trip to remember.
