I'm back! And reading! And maybe even blogging! No promises!

Hmm

You know what I'd like to get sometime? The Prince Valiant compilation books. Prince Valiant was one of those strips that I was always interested in as a kid, but never quite was able to keep up with the story. Then we moved, and my new hometown didn't print that strip.

But I like fantasy books, and Val's hair isn't any worse than a lot of heroes in my favorite tv shows (See: Mick St. John in Moonlight, or Don Eppes in 5th/6th season Numb3rs).

The one downside will be telling all the blond women apart. I always had trouble with that. Maybe reading in context will help with that.

    Man I've got TONS of Prince Valiant books, and they are all simply gorgeous. Hal Foster was a GOD. And believe it or not, he actually had different body types for his women AND men.

    I'll have to find some! I remember fragments of storylines from when I was a kid and that's about it. (I think there was one where Valiant's daughter was dating a druid, and there was some sort of bardic contest. But that could just be a deluded fragment of my brain).
