En savoir plus

The Prince Valiant Page is the first book collection featuring Gary Gianni’s work on Prince Valiant. This book gives us unprecedented access to Gianni’s rendition of the Prince Valiant Sunday strip and his working methods. Gianni describes his role as an assistant to John Cullen Murphy who had originally been the assistant to Hal Foster--Prince Valiant's creator! Upon Murphy's retirement, Gianni became the third artist in the 70-year history of the feature.

It continues with in-depth knowledge of the strip’s creative process. Supporting artwork includes collaborations between Murphy and Gianni, with Murphy’s hand written notes and instructions. Examples of Gianni’s work over the past thirty years as a professional illustrator are included as well.

Gianni’s entertaining, insightful text reveals his methods and working relationships with Murphy and current Prince Valiant writer, Mark Schultz. Further, he explains the usage of his tools and provides many tips learned during the course of his career. Prince Valiant aficionado’s, those interested in the creation process, and enthusiasts of Gianni’s artwork will all find this book appealing.

Most reproductions are direct from the original artwork, rendered with archival quality, and displayed in museum catalogue format. Gianni’s originals are delineated using brush and pen. He utilises these tools to create tones and variations often lost in the pure black and white reproduction methods characteristically employed in newspapers and comics. Gianni’s work has never been reproduced in this manner before. His full tonal range will be revealed for the first time.

This book includes three gatefolds of Prince Valiant strips in colour to showcase the finished works.
