Prince Valiant

As an enthusiast and collector of Prince Valiant, the most admired comic strip of all time, I have started an online petition to convince King Features, Fantagraphics Books and Comics Kingdom, to supply the missing issues from 1979 to 1997 of the strip, so that we collectors can COMPLETE our collection and pass it on to libraries and to our grandchildren. I am sure you share a mutual interest in this endeavor. Thus I request you support and sign this petition, and to share it with your many costumers who are also enthusiasts and collectors of Prince Valiant. My petition PRINCE VALIANT was approved and is online now: http://rivoice.net/petitions/prince-valiant.html?country=
