Modesty BlaiseModesty Blaise is a fictional character in a comic strip of the same name created by Peter O'Donnell (writer) and Jim Holdaway (art) in 1962. The strip follows the adventures of Modesty Blaise, an exceptional young woman with many talents and a criminal past, and her trusty sidekick Willie Garvin. It was adapted into films made in 1966, 1982, and 2003 and a series of novels and short stories beginning also in 1966.
Many critics see the early years of the strip as a classic of adventure comic strips. The novels are regarded by some as being among the classics of adventure fiction.
In 1994, DC Comics released a graphic novel adaptation of Modesty Blaise (the novel), with art by Dick Giordano.
In Sweden, the strip has been in continuous distribution since 1969 in a monthly comic adventure magazine called "Agent X9" (after the existing Modesty comic magazine "Agent" was merged with the "X9" magazine). Many of O'Donnell's stories actually premiered here (translated into Swedish), and the magazine continues to run a Modesty Blaise story every month, from the archives. Sweden is also an ongoing source for in-print graphic-novel-style collections of Modesty Blaise "capers" (including hardcovers), though they're also in Swedish. When the daily strip was discontinued, artist Romero was given permission by O'Donnell to do a final Modesty Blaise story directly for the Swedish "Agent X9" magazine. The two-parter was published in 2002 and based on an unused script by O'Donnell entitled "The Dark Angels". Romero has for the past years also contributed with original painted covers for the "Agent X9" magazine.
The American magazine Comics Revue also continues to reprint the strip, and remains to date the only publisher to have released an English-language version of "The Dark Angels".
