Prince Valiant in the Days of King Arthur
, or simply Prince Valiant, is a long-
running comic strip created by Hal Foster in 1937. It is an epic adventure
that has told a continuous story during its entire history, and the full stretch
of that story now totals more than 4000 Sunday strips. Currently, the strip
appears weekly in more than 300 newspapers in the U.S., according to its 
distributor, King Features Syndicate.

The full-page strip continued until 1971 when strip #1788 was not offered in
full-page format—it was the last strip Foster drew. The strip continues today
by other artists in a half page format.
