    A reprint of the Modesty Blaise comic strips 61, 62, and 63. I finally got my hands on an English language MB album. Funnily enough, the second story is one of the first I actually ever read. The first story is “Butch Cassidy Rides again” where Modesty and Willie are riding an old outlaw trail in the US. They come to a town where the locals are reviving the spirit of Western films for tourists’ enjoyment. However, during a mock gun battle, Modesty realizes that one of the shots was real.

Funnily enough, the second story is one of the first I actually ever read. The first story is “Butch Cassidy Rides again” where Modesty and Willie are riding an old outlaw trail in the US. They come to a town where the locals are reviving the spirit of Western films for tourists’ enjoyment. However, during a mock gun battle, Modesty realizes that one of the shots was real. She noticed the young man whose thigh has been shot and with her quick action, saves his life. Meanwhile, Willie goes after the shooter. However, Willie is surprised from behind and the shooters get away. Also, the shooters looked like Butch Cassidy and his gang, so the local sheriff doesn’t believe Willie’s account. He dismisses Modesty and Willie as nutcases looking for celebrity. The next day, Willie and Modesty meet a girl who is helping her grandparents against local ruffians – who look like Butch Cassidy and his gang. Willie and Modesty decide to stay and help the girl and her grandparents. The next is “Million Dollar Game” which starts many years ago, when Modesty had just disbanded her criminal organization the Network and retired. She has taken up a new hobby: rescuing abused donkeys. The vet she calls to care for them, Greg Lawton, becomes her lover but they part ways after a few weeks. Then we move to the modern day. Someone is leaving short love notes to Modesty at her hotel. Outside the hotel, Modesty witnesses someone attacking a man. She saves him. He turns out to be the vet Lawton who is a bit peeved that Modesty didn’t recognize him. He also left the notes. Lawton is currently working for WWF trying to catch poachers. When his airplane burns, Modesty offers to fly him and help him against the poachers. The poachers are ruthless and well-armed. They are shooting rhinos and elephants for money and have killed game wardens before. As soon as they see that Modesty is helping Greg, they plan to kill both of them. The last is a fun and intense adventure “The Vampire of Malvescu”. Willie and Modesty are traveling in Transylvania by foot. They have a bet about which of them will arrive first to the castle of Malvescu which is owned by one of the men who were in the Network. However, when Willie arrives to the castle, he’s astonished to find out that the former bachelor has married a very innocent girl. When Modesty arrives to the local town, she’s told that she shouldn’t go to the castle because a vampire hunts there. The vampire has already killed one girl. But Modesty heads to the castle anyway – and a vampire attacks her! When Romero took over, the comics got more nudity. Especially in the third story, the former Network man’s wife spends a lot of time topless. I’m surprised the British newspapers allowed it. It’s also a bit strange because Modesty and Willie think that she’s very innocent. These were all fun stories, first in a Western theme and the last set in the rocky Transylvania. The last two stories bring out Modesty’s love of animals, especially of donkeys.

    I love westerns, so a graphic novel about a modern gang disguised as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid sounded interesting – and indeed it was interesting. The other stories in this book included an ersatz vampire and a wildlife poacher, also interesting. On a separate note, it was interesting that Modesty & Willie were both British, but only Willie had any sort of accent and used Britishisms. Modesty sounded quite American, and no other characters had accents or phrases from their native langu I love westerns, so a graphic novel about a modern gang disguised as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid sounded interesting – and indeed it was interesting.

On a separate note, it was interesting that Modesty & Willie were both British, but only Willie had any sort of accent and used Britishisms. Modesty sounded quite American, and no other characters had accents or phrases from their native language/dialact. Also interesting that someone named Modesty does in fact wear modest clothing, ie not short-shorts or super-tight or pants and a shirt that buttons past her cleavage. However, there are quite a few T&A poses, a few almost-modest pix of Modesty in her nighty, and one pic of her holding a blanket up to her chest – while the camera-view is from over her shoulder, so her breasts are exposed to the reader but not the guy waking her up.

    Dieser Band hat richtig Spaß gemacht. Toll, wie die alten Strips aus den Zeitungen aufgearbeitet wurden und hier als drei komplette Stories in einem Band vorliegen. Ich mag die Agenten-Serien der Sixties, und Modesty Blaise hat alles, was es zum (Retro-)Kult braucht. Die Handlungen sind gut und spannend erzählt, vor allem aber sind die Zeichnungen von Romero hervorzuheben, der nach meinem Geschmack seine "Konkurrenten" Jim Holdaway und Neville Colvin z.B. weit übertrifft.

    The title story (Million Dollar Game) is the best of the bunch in this collection but the other two (Butch Cassidy Rides Again, The Vampire of Malvescu) are pretty good as well. Also of note, topless shots galore! I wonder how the newspapers back then dealt with this?
