    Two stories in this volume of reprints. Both stories are from earlier in the run than those in the previous volume, and feature the artwork of Jim Holdaway. It wasn't until Titan’s second series of reprints that they really got serious about running all of the strips in chronological order. That said, the individual stories are all pretty independent of each other, and don't necessarily have to be read in order. “Uncle Happy” brings Modesty to Las Vegas, and pits her against Walter and Lucy Dee, Two stories in this volume of reprints. Both stories are from earlier in the run than those in the previous volume, and feature the artwork of Jim Holdaway. It wasn't until Titan’s second series of reprints that they really got serious about running all of the strips in chronological order. That said, the individual stories are all pretty independent of each other, and don't necessarily have to be read in order. “Uncle Happy” brings Modesty to Las Vegas, and pits her against Walter and Lucy Dee, apparent model citizens and philanthropists, but who run a prostitution ring on the side. It's not a bad story or anything, just not particularly memorable in any way. The Dees are fun villains, but not much of a challenge, really. “Bad Suki” is another of those rare stories that's very strongly of its time and place, which would be the hippie era of the late 60's. Modesty encounters a young girl having something of a bad trip, and helps keep her safe until she comes down. This leads to Modesty and Willie going undercover to try and stop a major drug supplier from bringing in a fresh load of product. The story just barely avoids some of the pitfalls of the pop culture of the era. It manages to be squarely anti-drug without being too preachy--it helps that Modesty, as a character, has always frowned upon the sale of illegal drugs. We don't get any long speeches full of misinformation or anything. And we don't get any phony attempts at pretending to be “hip” or “with it”. Modesty and Willie seem somewhat bemused by hippie culture, but definitely not mocking or condescending. All that said, this is also something of a minor story, and gets a little incoherent towards the very end. There are a few too many events that happen off-panel which then need to be explained by Inspector Brook in several exposition filled strips--clearly a pacing problem on O’Donnell’s part. Lesser Modesty Blaise is still Modesty Blaise though. Recommended!

    This book contains the stories "Uncle Happy", which ran from 20 April 1965 to 18 September 1965, and "Bad Suki", which ran from 15 January 1968 to 25 May 1968. I've just read "Uncle Happy" in one of the more recent Titan reprint books, Modesty Blaise: Mister Sun. It's a good yarn, with memorable villains. "Bad Suki" is short but sweet, with a twist that anyone who has ever read a story or seen a film will have seen coming a mile off, but is none the worse for it. Plus, there's a treat in this sto This book contains the stories "Uncle Happy", which ran from 20 April 1965 to 18 September 1965, and "Bad Suki", which ran from 15 January 1968 to 25 May 1968.

Plus, there's a treat in this story: as well as the usual saucy shots of Modesty in her trademark black bra, we actually see her with her hair down, when she goes undercover as a hippy...
