The dark underworld of espionage and crime is lit up by the fatal charms of the gorgeous Modesty Blaise - high priestess of pulp crime and goddess of cult thrillers!
Modesty Blaise has a close encounter in "Take Me To Your Leader"; both Modesty and her partner, Willie Garvin, must save a young girl from a deadly plot in "The Highland Witch"; and in "Cry Wolf", Sir Gerald Tarrant tries to hoodwink the daring duo with a false kidnapping...but all hell breaks loose when a real kidnapper strikes!
Featuring brand new story introductions by Modesty creator, Peter O'Donnell, plus a very rare interview with O'Donnell, this latest addition to the "Modesty Blaise" library is not to be missed!

Review by RoC
Well, this new edition of all the Modesty Blaise comics is about a third of the way through all the stories and itsd still going strong. Excellent series, with large format and lots of extra art and interviews. Its almost a waste of time rating them as I love the books so much I'd never give them a bad rating, even if they were bizarrely terrible for once
Review by jjmcgaffey
Three stories. The first is Take Me To Your Leader - it's an interesting setup, but they spoiled it in the end. Being willing to die for a cause is one thing, being willing to kill for it is quite another. They'd already lost the toss. Oh well - nice last line, though. Then Highland Witch - a relatively minor story, with interesting characters and a clever method. Pity the luck went against them - on the other hand, it ended up with Willie on the inside and able to bring Wallace along. The haunting tricks were neat. Then Cry Wolf - Tarrant being sneaky and Modesty outfoxing him all along. The villains were relatively minor - their only advantage was being out of reach, and once Modesty and Willie caught up they were pretty well done. And then Modesty fixed Tarrant all over again - though he did make a good point. Nice. Good overall.

A trio of quite good Modesty Blaise stories: "Take Me To Your Leader", a quite unusual one in which for a while Modesty and Willie take quite seriously the possibility that they are dealing with aliens, "Highland Witch", a bit of a hoot with a sardonically humorous doctor who puts me in mind of Steven Collier, and "Cry Wolf", which I already have in another collection, but a good story nonetheless. The only fly in the ointment is Romero's artwork, which I have never felt works for the Modesty Blaise series.
