A Tale of Terror
Prince Valiant's son Nathan, however, is not impressed: "Mother has already spun that yarn for me, as they tell it in the Misty Isles. Down there they call the menaces Scylla and Charybdis – but it's basically the same story."
Concludes Prince Valiant: "The world has grown too small when a ripping good tale like that no longer inspires awe. Children today are far too jaded."
"Such is the eternal divide between generations," the chronicler of Prince Valiant (Mark Schultz) declares.
