Classics Illustrated no. 130 (Caesar’s Conquests) is a prime example of visual plagiarism or “comic swiping.” The story was ostensibly drawn by Joe Orlando, but most of the artwork was actually derived from Hal Foster’s classic Prince Valiant comics. Lucas Smeets discovered no less than 167 cases of Valiant-inspired drawings in this 44-page story. This booklet convincingly showcases them all. Lucas Smeets (1951) is a cartoonist. He has been publishing the “family comic” Venlo-Internationaal since 1998.
