For the Winter 2015 issue of the CFA APA, noted collector Chris Killackey wrote an excellent, informative article on the rediscovery of the Carol Day art and how it made its way to the US. The CFA APA has a limited circulation, so most Carol Day fans probably haven't seen it. I thought the article would be of great interest to visitors to the site, and Chris has graciously allowed us to post it here. Click here for the article. Thanks, Chris!

The text in the blog entry translates into English as follows: Influenced by the use of comics by the situacionists, the group publisher of Jornal do Emigrante, (in fact, one of the groups since the title of the newspaper was used by two distinct political sectors in the emigrant community, each competing for the legitimacy of its use - so there's 2 newspapers with the same name), published several comic strips, cartoons and caricatures using the original images and characters but giving them revolutionary phrases and plots. (Jornal do Emigrante, 10-11, May-June 1971.)
In English, the captions read as follows:
MANY THANKS to Alberto Soares for forwarding this to us and for translating the blogger's note and the strip dialog!
Scrapbook #1 begins with episode #101, so the set of tearsheets unfortunately lacks the first Carol Day story.
The table below catalogs the content of the scrapbooks that we have seen. For scrapbooks we have not seen we have inferred the contents where it seemed reasonable. In these cases, we have noted "info presumed" in the Notes column.
