Hal Foster is one of the grandmasters of American newspaper comics, and one of the medium's great innovators. He was the first to adapt Edgar Rice Burroughs' 'Tarzan of the Apes' into comics format , , but is best-known for his Arthurian saga 'Prince Valiant' , to which he devoted over forty years of his life. Coming from a background in classical illustration, Foster introduced new techniques into the art of newspaper comics, such as chiaroscuro, naturalistic drawing and a thorough documentation. His hybrid of fine arts and sequential narrative contained no speech balloons, but short captions, allowing the artist to entertain lavishly with highly detailed backgrounds, mass scenes and beautiful coloring. Together with his contemporaries Alex Raymond and Milton Caniff , he ranks as one of the most influential comics artists of all time, rightfully earning him the nickname the "Father of the Adventure Strip". His lay-outs, direction and masterful storytelling are an influence to comics artists worldwide to this day, and are sometimes even downright copied.
