When Hal Foster retired from drawing the Prince Valiant strip in 1970, Foster picked John Cullen Murphy to be his successor. Murphy went on to draw the strip for 34 years, nearly equaling Foster's own reign on the feature's art. Murphy never tried to imitate Foster's style. His use of a pen line rather than a brushed one gave the feature an entirely different feel, yet the quality of the art remained impressive. In this rousing Sunday, King Arthur strips his conniving brother Mordred of his emblem as he cuts his arm and bleeds to show the emblem being cut from his brother's tunic. This stunning Sunday was one of the RARE times John Cullen Murphy HAND COLORED his drawn Sunday....to PERFECTION! The image area of the Sunday measures 13 by 19.5 inches on 2 pieces of thick Bainbridge Board that was taped from the back in between the 2 large tiers. A terrific Prince Valiant Sunday by John Cullen Murphy!
