Classic newspaper strip Carol Day now has its own website, with complete stories to read online and scans of the original artwork!
Carol Day ran from 1956 - 1967 and was syndicated in 70 newspapers around the world. The story concerns Carol's life and loves and the people she encounters. It might well be dismissed as a "soap" today but it's far more realized and sophisticated than that. Artist David Wright was a master of light and shadow, evoking atmosphere with his linework. Although the style is photo-realistic the rendering displays comic techniques at their finest. Pure gold.
The Carol Day website is expertly designed and features two complete serials so far, with a third to follow soon. The strips are from David Wright's own scrapbook which he clipped from the Daily Mail. The website also features actual size scans of his original artwork for fans to study, and the originals are available to buy from the website.
Sadly, David Wright passed away many years ago, but the website is a fine tribute to his strip which I'm sure will attract fans old and new to his thoughtfully crafted artwork. http://www.carol-day.com/index.html
