Modesty Blaise, the tough and enigmatic character created by Peter O'Donnell, made her international debut on May 13, 1963 in a newspaper strip story illustrated by Jim Holdaway. On Jim Holdaway's sudden death in 1970 the artwork was taken up by Enric Badia Romero. In 1978 John Burns drew the strip for a year then Pat Wright for nine months. In May 1980 the fifth artist was introduced, Neville Colvin, who produced over 1500 strips. Colvin retired in 1986 and Romero continued again until the very last strip in 2001. This marvelous catalogue showcases over 160 original artworks reproduced here in the finest detail. Each individual scan of the original art shown in this book was carefully taken to optimise its reproduction on the printed page and to retain the look and feel of the artist's detailed pen
Limited to 600 copy print run.
