Prince Valiant New Edition

It's not the first time Hal Foster's celebrated Prince Valiant has been reprinted, but this time Fantagraphics is publishing them from the color engraver's proof sheets housed at Syracuse University. The only downside is the book's size, 10.5" X 14.25", is only half the original reproduction size. What can ya do...
