It’s no secret we love The Prince Valiant Page. I was curious how other people felt about the book, so I searched the web. For some unbiased articles, these websites have much to offer. “State of the Art” by Arnie Fenner on Tor.com, Dave Astor’s article at the Editor & Publisher website, “Books about Comics: President to Prince” by Peter Sanderson at the Publisher’s Weekly website, Charley Parker’s blog on his incredible Lines and Colors website, Todd Klein’s blog on his website, and Allan Holtz’s blog, all provide positive feedback worth reading.
I know we’re over three months away, but WonderCon will be here before we know it. And, I have some exciting news. Both Gary Gianni and Mark Schultz will be signing at the Flesk booth all three days! This will be Gianni’s first appearance at WonderCon.
Gianni’s art and Schultz’s script bring you Prince Valiant each week. We will have copies of Gary’s The Prince Valiant Page, as well as his new graphic novel adaptation “Jules Verne’s Twenty-Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” available at the show. Also on hand will be a special signed The Prince Valiant Page poster that is free with any purchase.
Schultz will be available with previews of his upcoming Various Drawings Volume Four and Storms at Sea books.
Both gentlemen will have original art for sale! I will not know what art they are bringing until the show, and look forward to being seeing what they have for sale at the same time those who attend do.
WonderCon is held at the Moscone Center South in San Francisco. The show runs from February 27 to March 1, 2009. More information about the show can be found at their website.
I received an email from Lee Hester of Lee’s Comics who wrote:
