Modesty Blaise is my all time favourite action hero. And this is the first really good set of reproductions of those fabulous comic strips.

Modesty has a unique and unflinching code of honour, and her "sidekick" Willie Garvin is a seriously excellent character, wholely fleshed out, and sporting a sense of humour that gives these strips a wonderful edge. The absolute trust between Modesty and Willie provide both the anchor and the frame for many of the adventures they either pursue, or that they stumble across and choose to resolve. Much of what they do is as a result of helping out those they to choose to befriend. Both of their lifestyle's translate extraordinarily well into this era.

Jim Holdaway's artwork is just so excellent (and so much better than later main collaborating artist Romero whose style actually and unfortunately dates it). Holdaway and O'Donnell together, within a few frames, have set up a wonderful plot unfolding and excellent visualisation of those core characters. Such good stories, and such great villians and supporting cast members.

The strips are issued, in these graphic novel formats, in the original publication sequence, so you get to read them almost as we did in the day of their original newspaper appearances. This first reissue in the series sets up the graphic novel formats with an excellent and lengthy preface that give background to author and artist and the way the characters were developed (or evolved or just plain sprang fully formed from the imagination and the pen), before moving into the meat of the matter with the first 3 complete sets of storey strips. The suffices/postscripts also contain excellent material about the strips storey order and dates etc.

I bought this particular book when it was first issued and unfortunately loaned it out, and forgot to whom I so stupidly did so, and I have only just managed to trace and buy a good quality replacement. And yes, copies of this first issue are now scarcer and much more expensive than hens teeth. But so worthwhile tracking down. (No more borrowers allowed.)

One of the best "comic" strips ever created - so do yourself a very great favour and get hold of the complete set if you can. I did, and have now read and reread them many times, as well as just looking at and studying the images and trying to figure out how so much nuance can be crammed into such an apparently simple format.

I came to know Modesty Blaise from the brief Pulp Fiction reference. I went on and bought the movie "My name is Modesty" Given the low budget, I wasnt expecting it to win any oscars, but the movie was enjoyed.

The book is another ball game. the comic strips suck you in, the stories are easy to follow and exciting. the strips are clear easy to read and presented very well. Modesty is well presented and charater development over the course of the stories in the book is sufficient. a little more is learned with every story, rather than blatantly telling the reader everything in the first few strips. The action is riviting and i found myself going over some strips several times to absorb it to the point of almost seeing happen in front of me.

Highly recommeded.

There isn't a better story strip from the last 50 years than Modesty Blaise by Peter O'Donnell in the years it was drawn by Jim Holdaway. This volume starts from the beginning of the strip and is one you will read and reread. O'Donnell's writing is top-notch, and Holdaway's art sets a standard that few other other comic strip artists can ever match - and the combination is MUCH greater than the sum of the parts. Titan's presentation is excellent - crisp, large reproduction so the strips really shine. Excellent editorial matter - good introductions and a very useful episode and artist guide to the entire run of the strip.

Over the years there have been several Modesty Blaise reprints. The volumes from Titan are still the best and unlikely to be surpassed. Go for it.

I'd forgotten how good the Modesty Blaise stories were, until discovering them again while browsing through Amazon. Having only previously read the novels, the existance of the daily strips was known to me but I had never had the chance to compare the two formats. The bottom line is that I was so pleased with this book, that I've just ordered the next two in the series !!

The book contains four early Modesty Blaise stories, including the first daily strip setting up the characters, and a later short strip which delves into Modesty Blaise's origin story. Each story has a lovely balance of action, story and character to keep readers turning pages to see what happens next. The illustrations are also great, ensuring that you don't turn the pages too fast...

To sum up, the graphic novels capture the era beautifully, but haven't dated for what they are - a set of good honest action adventure stories with memorable characters that leave you wanting more.
