A Christmas Carol
The Children's Newspaper also ran strips, many of them little features on famous people and sports men and women. Many others adapted famous novels in newspaper strip format. The very first one, published in 1946, adapted Charles Dickens's classic A Christmas Carol, drawn by C. E. Montford, and, as it's Christmas, I thought I'd give the strip its first airing in over 60 years. Merry Christmas to you all and have a wonderful day.
