Story Guide

The Daily Mail, Carol Day's paper of record, titled the stories beginning with strip #211, in the middle of Paris Episode, and stopped after The Prophet, which ended with strip 1809. For stories that were untitled, we have used the name of the main character as the title, rather than try to invent something in the spirit of the editorially provided titles. In cases where we have supplied the title, it is in [ ].
