*Collected Editions: Around the early 21st Century, when Modesty Blaise was seen only in serialisations in Comics Revue Magazine, the publishers of CR, Manuscript Press, released a couple of MB collections in trade paperback format. Both of them reprinted three complete adventures of Modesty & Willie Garvin, akin to the Titan reprints of the 1980s and 1990s, and sported brand-new and rather spiffy full-colour covers by artist Tom Yeates. They are both now in stock : ‘Lady In The Dark’ (which also presents the stories ‘The Big Mole’ and ‘The Girl from The Future’) and ‘Live Bait’ (co-featuring ‘Milord’ and ‘Samantha and the Cherub’). All tales illustrated by Romero, and written, of course, by Modesty’s creator, Peter O’Donnell. These are both NM, on sale at £10 each.
