Hal Foster is a master of cartooning. The way he blends real places and real events into his fictionalized version of King Arthur and his knights of the round table is amazing. The story revolves around Prince Valiant, the son of the deposed king of Thule (basically Norway with a little Sweden) and his adventures as a knight of the round table. The entire series is great without being too violent or graphic. Plenty of action, adventure, romance, and exotic locales as Val forges his destiny in the medieval world.

I call this one Prince Valiant versus the Huns. After he helps his father regain the throne of Thule, he goes off to Europe for adventure and finds the Huns have overrun Europe. While Valiant doesn't take on Attila the Hun, he does fight against several hordes of Huns with his typical style of cleverness and valor. While Valiant is a great fighter, it is his intelligence and wits that set him apart. He often wins by tricking his opponents or turning them against their allies.

Prince gets bored easily and is always on the lookout for more adventure and a good cause to fight for. He also like happy endings and will often set couples up for romance and marriage, much to the chagrin of his friend and mentor, Sir Gawain. In this volume, he encounters his future bride to be, Aleta, and loses his magical Singing Sword. His journey to find Aleta and get his sword back take him all over the Middle East and Africa.

The return to Thule. After several years of adventuring, Prince Valiant gets homesick and travels home to Thule. Along the way, he stops off in England to help King Arthur with another invasion of Saxons. But once home, he has no peace since Aleta's beauty haunts his dreams so he sets out to have her undo her "enchantment" on him.
