Prince Violent

Wally Wood parody of Hal Foster's famous comic strip.







Wally Wood also worked on the actual Prince Valiant comic strip. He was one of the artists that was considered as a replacement for Hal Foster, but John Collen Murphy was chosen instead.
Wally Wood's tryout page
Wood drew what Foster had described in this page, which lacks the energy of "Prince Violent".
Wally Wood was an outstanding artist, but somehow never got the recognition he deserved during his lifetime, even though he worked on some of the most famous comics of his time. His work still remains popular today.
