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. ( )

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. ( )

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 ( )
