SUCCESS! Attic Conquers Prince Valiant Puzzle





Ken Avidor donated this puzzle last week, and at the time he wryly suggested that some of the pieces may be missing. He could have told us that the two missing pieces were laden with text!

If you've got some time this weekend, please help us out by suggesting what text should fill the black holes. The transcript (as is):

Panel 1:
"...... AND _______ ETTLED
COUNTRY ___ SWI ___ LRY IS
INVINCIBL ___ THE ___ 'S KNIGHTS
MIGHT DEFEAT THEM IF ONLY THEY
COULD CATCH THEM!"

Panel 2:
"IF DANGER T ________ RT
OF BRITAIN WHY _______ N
CORNWALL?"
"BECAUSE WE B _________ KINGS
OF CORNWALL ________ D WITH
THE SAXONS, AND ________ INVASION
WILL START FROM HERE!" ANSWERS
THE KING.

I'll be literal-minded, just so y'all don't get all weary from the suspense.

Panel 1

".....AND IN A SPARSELY SETTLED COUNTRY THIS SWIFT CAVALRY IS INVINCIBLE! THE KING'S KNIGHTS MIGHT DEFEAT THEM IF ONLY THEY COULD CATCH THEM!"

Panel 2

"IF DANGER THREATENS THE HEART OF BRITAIN WHY ARE WE HERE IN CORNWALL?" ASKS VAL.

"BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THE FIVE KINGS OF CORNWALL HAVE TRAFFICKED WITH THE SAXONS, AND THE GREAT INVASION WILL START FROM HERE!" ANSWERS
THE KING."
