Description
After a series of shorter adventures including The Seductress, The Call of the Sea, and The Jealous Cripple, Val finally decides he can stand it no more and sets out to find his long-lost love. Long-time fans know that his quest will eventually be successful, but Foster throws so many obstacles in the way of true love that the saga The Winning of Aleta would end up stretching a full year and a half, well into the next volume With its stunning art reproduced directly from pristine printer's proofs, Fantagraphics has introduced a new generation to Foster's masterpiece, while providing long-time fans with the ultimate, definitive version of the strip.
