The first collection of "Modesty Blaise" reprints that I've seen since Peter O'Donnell's death, and thankfully this book has some tributes to O'Donnell written by fellow pros and co-creators, including Neil Gaiman and Romero (who to my relief is not the artist for the stories herein). There is also a tribute to Neville Colvin, who to my mind is the next best Modesty Blaise artist after the short-lived Jim Holdaway. The stories themselves are uniformly excellent. "The Wild Boar" is a standard action story, but features Giles Pennyfeather, one of my favorite characters from the novels, in the strip for the first time I know of. "Kali's Disciples" is a fascinating adventure in India that involves Modesty's old spiritual teacher, Sivaji, and opens a rare window into her past. "The Double Agent" is the most unlikely, but most fascinating story, featuring an enemy agent's effort to get revenge on Modesty by creating and training a perfect double to frame her for Tarrant's murder. This story also features my favorite of Willie's lady friends, Maude Tiller. ( )

The intro is largely an eulogy for Peter O'Donnell - various people telling how they knew him and how he'd impressed them. Some interesting stories. Then a discussion of Neville Colvin, the artist for these stories.Then the comics themselves - three stories, starting with The Wild Boar. Simple and neat - the adventure is very straightforward, the setup - how Modesty becomes aware of the kidnapping - is interesting. Nice to see Rene again, and Giles Pennyfeather for the first time (in the strip); the story is very like The Silver Mistress. Next is Kali's Disciples; another interesting story. It's a little lacking - like The Black Pearl, their actions are a little too - scripted - for my taste. Other than that, very nice. It's interesting that both Modesty & Willie and Inspector Chatterji came to the same conclusion, separately - Kali's Disciples were finished in any case. The jewel and its ending was - weird. Nice bit of flashbacks to early Modesty, too. Then the last one is the title story, The Double Agent. I like it - serious attempts to psych out Modesty that simply fail. Well, not entirely - she is confused at several points - but not to the extent they need. I'm almost sorry for Gemini, though. Three good stories. ( )
