Fantagraphics' Prince Valiant books: Anyone bought them?

My dad is a lifelong Prince Valiant fan. He has hardcover collections of some of the early comics (I assume the “Nostalgia Press” editions … I don’t have access to the books right now to double-check), and I have been thinking about getting him some more PV collections for his 80th BDay. Has anyone bought/read the Fantagraphics editions? Are they of good quality? I kind of wish they were hardcover rather than trade paper, but there aren’t many options there.
