But somehow I am so enamored of the 1950s Hastings House editions that printed Foster's artwork as black and white line work, with a narrative text by Max Trell. The artwork is so clean and crisp, looking much like his original drawings would look like. And there were epic scenes throughout.
I'm only showing a few of the many illustrations in this volume, not in any particular order, and one of those I cropped. We've seen this work in many places, but if you'd like to see more of these beautiful black and whites, let me know and I'll be glad to scan some more.
I love this set of books!
I would love to see more, thank you for giving so much to the internet community!!! There should be more people like you.
Of course, the best Prince Valiant is in black and white!
In my place we have seen that comics only in b/w.
My colleagues and I were very, very disappointed when we saw it in color
Those are amazing. I don't often see Foster's work in black and white, so thee are a real treat.
Thank you SO Much!
I, for one, can never get enough of Fosters work.
I LOVE THESE BOOKS I only have the last three but they're among my favorite Valiant books for the same reason you state.
Fantastic stuff! Thanks for sharing. I visit your blog almost every day. It's a treasure chest! More, please.
Fabulous Thomas ! You can really see what Frazetta took from Foster in several of the pieces you posted. Would love to see more.
Oh. My. Word.
This is the best black & white PV edition ever published (better than the Hastings volumes): http://www.manuelcaldas.com/coleccion.php?col=val_es
With ALL the pages with this astonishing crystal clearness: http://www.manuelcaldas.com/imagenes/PV213_big.png and http://www.manuelcaldas.com/imagenes/PV301_big.png
It’s in Spanish, but volume 1 was also published in English (by the same publisher, Manuel Caldas): http://www.fantagraphics.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=1576&category_id=181&manufacturer_id=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=62
