Prince Valiant in glorious black and white
I just got a fantastic edition of the first two years of Prince Valiant from Portugal! Every page has been reproduced from sharp proofs or carefully restored from the best scource material available.
It should be noted that even though this is published in Portugal the book is entirely in English!
This is really the way I've always wanted a PV edition to look!
Hard covers, large format, good paper and lovingly restored. Hardcore PV fans will naturally get both this and the new Fantagraphics editions. Myself I think I'll stick with the black and white edition. Just to give you a glipmse of it and to wet your apetite here are a few photos:
More photos can be found HERE.
To get a copy if you live in Europe please order from Manuel Caldas (The publisher) or try The Book Palace in UK.
If you live in the USA it's available through Fantagraphics Books.
The publisher of this black and white series are still looking for a number of proofs for upcoming volumes. So if you have any or even nice copies from proofs you should get in touch with him. Or if you know someone with access to proofs. That way we can make sure this will be the best possible edition of Prince Valiant in black and white.
PS. This was published last year but I didn't know about it until now. And it seems that very few collectors knew about it until very recently. So please spread the word about it so the publisher can continue this project.
