The Hal Foster wiki last edited by Violens on 09/18/13 09:47PM View full history

HAROLD (“Hal”) RUDOLF FOSTER was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1892 and passed away in his adopted home of Chicago in 1982.

Foster's impact on comic art was especially significant in the development of adventure strips, due to his controlled compositions, action scenes and detailed drawings of human anatomy and costume. His Prince Valiant pages were much admired by other artists, and he became a key influence on several generations of artists who were creating realistic comic strip and comic book illustrations, including Joe Kubert, Frank Frazetta, George Pratt, Mark Schultz, William Stout, Warren Tufts, the British illustrator Bill Ward, Al Williamson and Wally Wood
