three thrilling, nerve-shredding stories - Top Traitor, The
Vikings and The Head Girls - Modesty mist rip deeply through
her own organisation to uncover a spy, do battle with homicidal
Norsemen and cross claws with a pride of she-kittens led by
an old adversary...
another collection of classic spy strips that were originally
printed in The Evening Standard. It seems almost criminal
that the exploits of Modesty Blaise have, for the most part,
gone unnoticed by the general populous. Everyone knows of
James Bond, but I doubt whether many of today's generation
have heard of Modesty.
is a great shame, as the stories reprinted here are as equally
entertaining as the Daily Express's James Bond strips
- which, incidentally, are also being reprinted by Titan Books
at the moment.
there is no question that these strips show their age - both
the artwork and dialogue appear dated - there is something
about them that is charming to an old comics fan like myself.
collection also features an interesting introduction, which
looks at the '60s Modesty Blaise movie, and sees the
second part of an interview with author Peter O'Donnell.
with the previous volume, this is a fantastic collection that
is certainly worth taking a look at.
