Prince Valiant Vol. 3: Pirates, Vikings and Mythical Beasts
I've been savoring my way through Fantagraphics new series of Prince Valiant reprints, and Volume 3: 1941-1942, is another stunner. Val has gone exploring, and here journeys through the Holy Land, Africa and parts of Europe before heading back to Camelot.
Of special note, he meets Queen Aleta, his future bride, is captured by pirates, goes a'roving with good-natured Viking and battles an ogre (gorilla), a unicorn (rhino) and a dragon (elephant). Feast thine eyes.
