Hello Comic Art Fans!
With the dust finally settling after SDCC we're starting to see some of the comic art pickups from this year's con. Of note have been some incredible commissions from Walt Simonson from the dinner hosted by IDW last Thursday. You can check out several of the artworks here.
One of the most famous Prince Valiant comic strips by Hal Foster will be auctioned at Nate D. Sanders Auctions on Today!. In this strip published May 28, 1939, Prince Valiant approaches Andelkrag Castle, showcasing the Castle in its own panel measuring 17” x 21”. The entire artwork measures 26” x 34.5”. This panel of Andelkrag Castle is often used to demonstrate Foster’s superb technique from the early years of the strip, and appears on the cover of Prince Valiant Vol. 2: 1939-1940, as well as in numerous other publications referencing Hal Foster’s Prince Valiant artwork. The auction also features an early Sunday Peanuts comic strip by Charles Schulz, dated June 21, 1953.
