SABRE-TOOTH Peter O'Donnell. ONE 'UNFORTUNATE that it should be this one,' said Liebmann. Here in the valley there was no saluting or springing to attention, no orthodox discipline.

SABRE-TOOTH Peter O'Donnell. To the extent that Liebmann recognised any personal feelings of his own he would have preferred the normal trappings of discipline, but he acknowledged that there was no need for them. No need at all. Karz used more direct and lasting methods to get the results he wanted. How long have you been with us, Carter?'

Sabre-Tooth (Modesty Blaise series) Paperback – September 1, 2003. O'Donnell is truly a master of the action/adventure genre. Blaise has been compared to James Bond, but I think the comparison does no favors for either character.

Aside from the espionage elements, they are quite different protagonists with different agendas. That said, they do give you that super cool 1960s experience that people like Tarantino try so hard to emulate (and sometimes succeed) in their films.

I learned of Modesty Blaise when reading "The Psychology of The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo" by Robin S. Rosenberg who mentions Stieg Larson was a big fan of the Modesty books. Modesty is a tough, brilliant and beautiful woman along the lines of The Avenger's Mrs. Peale, but more deadly. She is expert in martial arts and a variety of weapons. If these books were wrtten in this decade instead of the 60's, she would probably also be computer geek extraordinaire . Don't be put off by the tacky cover illustrations, the books are about brilliant, daring and often outlandish escapades (including - spoiler alert - shooting a defector over the Berlin Wall via a circus canon) rather than sexual encounters, which are plentiful but not explicit, very much a la Ian Fleming's James Bond and with humor like Lawrence Block's Tanner series. The books are entertaining, clever, humorous, thrilling and very well wriiten. I'm sorry there are only 13 books and the author sadly is no more.

I heard a lot about Modesty Blaise from others online and thought I'd check it out. When I saw DC Comics had done a reprint using one of my fav artists, Dick Giordano (Green Lantern, etc.) I could not resist.

It seems this graphic novel is of Modesty's early adventures. Hardened as a child at a refugee camp, she took over a criminal organization and dealt in everything except drugs and sex. She took on a partner and did quite well, getting out of the business.

Another man of a British organization (Sir Gerald Tarrant) wants her help and he convinces her by letting her know of one of her friends is in a prison, whom she frees. Grateful, she helps our modest British agent get the goods on a diamond smuggling ring.

The rest of the tale is quite well done. Modesty is very sexy; some of the scenes are really well done (thanks Dick!) and the James Bond like instruments of death (grenade in a shoe, etc.) are fun to read about as well.

The Modesty character is brazen, strong and can be soft when she wants. She uses her feminine ways to get the goods on the clueless male bad guys, even in one scene when a common thug gets the goods on her.

Most of these strips came from author Peter O'Donnell, who wrote these in the Sixties at the time of the James Bond films. Another femme fatale in comics and television is Honey West, (Honey West #1) but Modesty is tougher!

O'Donnell wrote many novels and even a screenplay of the character from what I understand. And yes, though I'm a newbie to this strip, I really must follow up on more graphic novels and maybe even check out that screenplay!

Tied up, a knife to her back, how will she escape? Read and see! Recommended.

This excellent Over-sized Trade Paperback is actually volume 28 in Titan Books Complete Modesty Blaise, This volume reprints British Comic Strips from 1997 and 1998. Since the strip ended in 2001, I assume it will be 30 Volumes in total. This Book is NOT in the Landscape format (wider then tall) that most recent comic strip collections have adopted. Instead they use a traditional "portrait' format with four strips to a page. While I would like to see them in larger size they are still readable and the reproduction is sharp. Since they use 4 strips per page rather then instead of the 2 or 3 per page that the American Library Of Comics or Hermes Press employ. Sine the stories do not conclude with a multiple of six daily strips you get two stray strips (on the page) that conclude each adventure.

Peter O'Donnell's writing is brilliant and the adventures are tightly plotted with every story beat intricately calculated. When reading some other adventure strips, you get the feeling that the plot is being created as the story goes along. That never happens in a Modesty Blaise story. Everything is carefully crafted.

Enric Romero is back with realistic but sexy fine line art. The man has knack for showing Modesty and her female cohorts in various states of partial nudity and making it seem integral to the plot.

British Writer Rebecca Chance does the introductions and does a good job. I love how they do an introduction for the general volume and then each of the four story-lines gets their own introduction. This is a great concept that I wish other strip collections would emulate.

1) THE MURDER FRAME. In this story Willie, Modesty's trusted right hand man, is framed for murder by a neighboring socialite. This is a very traditional murder yarn, make enjoyable by how well it is done.The story features a pair of returning strong women Lady Janet and Maude Tiller.

2)FRASER'S STORY. This story brings the spotlight onto one of the bit players in O'Donnell's Opus. We dig into Fraser's past as he tries to murder an agent who has destroyed something very valuable to him.

3) A TRIBUTE TO THE PHARAOH. This is easily my favorite story of the volume. it provides us with new information on the childhood of both Modest and Willie. It is set on the banks of the Nile and explores ancient burial tombs an the legends of Kush. We get a flashback of Modesty as
young teen. And find an elderly woman who helped raise Willie. We also meet a plucky young girl who is modern version of young Modesty.

4) SPECIAL ORDER. Speaking of plucky young woman, this features another one. Sam is another Strong woman whom are heroes had previously encountered before. Now she gets abducted by a group who specialize in "special ordering" just the perfect Sex Slave. Can she plot here an escape from the slave ship, before Modesty and Willie help out?

This Volume gets My Highest Recommendation.
