THE LOST SUNDAY
A fairy tale comic book about burnout
In an enchanted world, the best day of the week is missing. Legend says an evil witch stole it – but Nina is determined to find it!
The Lost Sunday is a comic book about working too much, told through stories and inspiration from old folklore, myths and tales.
Nina lives in a dusty town, haunted by the six angry wolves of the week - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each day brings never-ending chores, and no one can rest until they are done.
Legend speaks of a seventh, kinder wolf, but everybody knows an evil witch stole it and keeps it locked away. But Nina has had enough, so she sets on an ambitious quest - go to the forgotten realms, vanquish the witch, bring back Sunday and enough free time for everyone.
This imaginative new twist on old fairy-tales shines a light on a very present-day problem: burnout and the quest for free time. For children, it's a colourful journey into a land of magic, filled with whimsical creatures, strange trials and lessons about kindness to all, yourself included. The grownups will see a second layer - a glimpse of hope: striking the perfect, delicate balance between work and relaxation.
What we dream of the most is a parent and child reading The Lost Sunday together ❤ and then start a useful and pleasant conversation about the value of self care.
The Lost Sunday is printed in A4 format, featuring 64 beautifully coloured pages protected by a gorgeous hardback cover with gold inlays.
