YMMV / Prince Valiant

  • Arc Fatigue: Some storylines seem to have lasted for years.
  • Awesome Art: Hal Foster is always held up as one of the handful of very best artists to have ever drawn a newspaper comic strip. His only real competition would probably be Alex Raymond or Winsor McKay. The artists since Foster's retirement have been excellent, as well.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The strip is extremely popular in Germany, under the name Prinz Eisenherz ("Prince Ironheart").
    • Also, the theme song for the Animated Adaptation apparently became a hit for Italian pop singer Cristina D'Avena.
  • Like You Would Really Do It: In the early 2000's, a storyline had Camelot actually fall. The status quo was eventually restored, but it took a while, and the intervening lengthy storyline with all the main cast either in exile or in hiding, working behind the scenes, was legitimately shocking.
