    A reprint of the Modesty Blaise comic strips 19, 20, and 21. This collection starts Romero’s long run as MB artist. All three stories are fun and wacky. “Willie the Djinn” is set in a small country in the Middle East. The story starts in a casino where sheikh Kadhim Al-Mashaf has played a lot of backgammon against Modesty and he’s lost a lot. He wants to continue playing against her and even Willie can’t hide Modesty from him.

All three stories are fun and wacky. “Willie the Djinn” is set in a small country in the Middle East. The story starts in a casino where sheikh Kadhim Al-Mashaf has played a lot of backgammon against Modesty and he’s lost a lot. He wants to continue playing against her and even Willie can’t hide Modesty from him. Meanwhile, Willie has found a group of dancing girls whose manager has ditched them. When the sheikh offers a job to the girls, they only agree if Willie will come with them as a chaperon. Willie’s of course shocked and Modesty comes along, as well, to make sure Willie behaves. However, when they’re in the sheikh’s plane, one of the girls finds a bomb which takes down the plane. A coup is in progress and Modesty and the girls land right in the middle of it. This story has even more sexy girls and male gaze than is usual for Romero’s MB. It’s also got a lot of funny moments right from the start when Modesty is trying to hide from the sheikh’s servant and later when Willie convinces a little girl that he’s a djinn… sadly, without magic. “The Green Eyed Monster” is set in a small country in South America. Modesty has a new boyfriend, zoologist Gil de Serra. Gil’s very jealous ex-girlfriend comes to chew out Modesty but Modesty tosses her to a pool. However, when the jealous ex, who is the daughter of the local British ambassador, is kidnapped Modesty, Willie, and Gil set out to rescue her from the group of revolutionaries. This story again shows us that Modesty has compassion even for people who insult her. This story has also several humorous scenes, but they’re set after the half-way point. While “Death of a Jester” is set in a British castle, O’Donnell manages to bring exoticism to that place, too. One of Tarrant’s British Intelligence operatives was assigned to investigate a group of highly skilled and eccentric former army commandos who are now mercenaries. The operative is killed by a knight on a horse, under the eyes of two very shocked teens. The operative was dressed as a jester. The mercenaries enjoy dressing up as medieval knights and hunting people in the castle’s park. Modesty and Willie infiltrate them, assuming the roles of bored wealthy people. The medieval shenanigans are just hilarious.

    In ‘Willie the Djinn’, our hero is mistaken for a genie by a kidnapped is embroiled in a hostile royal family takeover in the Middle East, involving a British dancing girl troupe co-opted by the baddie as his harem. 'The Green-Eyed Monster' is a rude bitch who M&W rescue from terrorist rebels via a rough South American trek. Love the ending. 'The Death Of A Jester' is batshit fun with ex-commandos co-opting medieval characterisations and battles like jousting. All three are utterly awesome. 10/10 In ‘Willie the Djinn’, our hero is mistaken for a genie by a kidnapped is embroiled in a hostile royal family takeover in the Middle East, involving a British dancing girl troupe co-opted by the baddie as his harem.

    This Titan collection of three Modesty Blaise stories is the first one to only feature comics by Romero. MB is one of my favourite heroines and especially the last story is a blast featuring a typically quirky setting: a group of ex-army commandoes in a medieval castle causing mayhem and challenging Modesty and Willie to rounds of jousting and some mildly Most Dangerous Game style challenges. The other two are also worth a read. I am going through the Titans pretty randomly whenever I come across This Titan collection of three Modesty Blaise stories is the first one to only feature comics by Romero.

The other two are also worth a read. I am going through the Titans pretty randomly whenever I come across them and there are still a good number that I haven't read. So there is still a few year's reading up ahead of me. I have read all the MB novels and over the years have also collected three of Peter O'Donnell's Madeleine Brent books. Given that they are generally advertised as belonging to the romance genre I have been somewhat reluctant to approach them but they're in easy reach and may be some of my reading goals for the New Year.
