Sexy...Seductive...Deadly... Her name is Modesty Blaise.

Indexer Notes

Adapted from the novel "Modesty Blaise" by Peter O'Donnell, which in turn was a novelisation of O'Donnell's original screenplay for the 1967 film of the same name (little of O'Donnell's original story made it into the final film). Based upon the 1963-2000 comic strip Modesty Blaise by O'Donnell. Dan Spiegle ghost penciled 80-90% of this story, as confirmed by Mark Evanier when he re-asked Dan Spiegle about this in February 2012.

Her name is Modesty Blaise (Table of Contents)
