A wonderful newspaper strip, with its combination of sophisticated themes and stories, multi-dimensional characters and always magnificent art, <em>Carol Day</em> transcends even the best American strips of the time, and yet, strangely, despite being sold internationally, it was never syndicated in the United States.

<em>Carol Day</em> is a fashion model, elegant and assured in a world of intrigue, vividly brought to life in this much-acclaimed newspaper strip with multi-layered adult storylines and superbly detailed and atmospheric artwork.

Created by artist David Wright, she was published in the Daily Mail between 10th September 1956 and 25th May 1967.

Message from the Publisher
Following the great success of Lance Hallam and Jack Slingsby, we are delighted to announce the next group of Carol Day  titles. These books will each contain one complete Carol Day story reproduced from the original art in the original size. We will write a short introduction to the story plus copyright and contact information.

The pages will be just like Lance Hallam and Jack Slingsby.

For our first three complete stories we are planning:
Riverside Racket - the 8th story, published in 1958: a tale of passion and murder! Not seen since its original publication.
Money Matters - the 14th story, published in 1960: a story about a poor snob and a wealthy, good-hearted social climber.
Jimmy Hayes - the 24th story, published in 1963: a middle-aged lecher pursuing Carol.

We plan to release Riverside Racket  this year and follow up in 2025 with the next 2 story books.

To store and display these story books, a SLIPCASE will fit all three books. The slipcase will be the exact same form factor as the Lance Hallam and Jack Slingsby books so they will all match on your shelf. Brian Bolland has done another wonderful Carol Day design for the front of the slipcase. The slipcase will be available in 2025.
