    One thought on “Mister Sun”

    1. Another trip to the past for me Modesty Blaise was one of my favorite comics as a kid It features smart, beautiful and ass kicking heroine Modesty Blaise and her friend, the totally cool Willie Garvin Compared to all the comics I read as a child, this one was perhaps the best Well, my re reading 35 or so years later confirms it, which I can t say for most novels and comics of my tween and teen years This graphic novel contains three comics Mister SunThe Mind of Mrs DrakeUncle HappyAll three are [...]

    2. This compilation is based on some the earliest strips, and Mister Sun definitely dates itself by taking place during the Vietnam War But this merely adds to the fascination Modesty is embroiled thanks to Weng in a Hong Kong mastercriminal s drug smuggling scheme, and ends up fighting alongside an all female platoon against the VC Via Saigon Really interesting, really cool, with great character work Otherwise, The Mind of Mrs Drake is pretty kooky, with some definitely 60s inspired mind reading s [...]

    3. This is the second volume of Titan s chronological collection of the Modesty Blaise strips, and it includes the story arcs Mister Sun , The Mind of Mrs Drake , and Uncle Happy as well as introductions to the pieces by Peter O Donnell, the first part of an interview with O Donnell, and a piece on the Modesty Blaise phenomenon by Mike Paterson Once again, O Donnell is responsible for writing all of the stories, while the art chores on the strip are still 100% Jim Holdaway s.In my review of the fir [...]

    4. This book collects three stories Mister Sun, The Mind of Mrs Drake and Uncle Happy All three are highly enjoyable action thrillers, though for me The Mind of Mrs Drake was compromised somewhat by the title character being an actual psychic But there was a lot of it about in the 1960s, and the character is treated seriously I suppose it s not much of a departure from Willie Garvin s tingling ears of trouble Mister Sun is a drug lord with whom Modesty tangles the trail takes her to wartime Vietnam [...]

    5. This compilation includes Mister Sun , The Mind of Mrs Drake , and Uncle Happy All three were good, but Uncle Happy was definitely my favorite of the three, and I think my favorite of Modesty s adventures thus far Modesty not only meets up with a handsome F.B.I agent, but she and Willie are put into certain death situations for the amusement of a mobster s wife How intense I loved every minute of it, and couldn t wait to see how Modesty would escape from the multiple dangerous situations she fou [...]

    6. More MODESTY and still wonderful see my review of THE GABRIEL SET UP The title story here offers an interesting glimpse into Vietnam in the 60 s around the time the US was starting to get involved.

    7. All of these Titan reprints of the Modesty Blaise comic strips are yummy To get the strips in a permanent format is a joy, and makes them so much easy to reread and compare I have bought every single one of these that they ve put out And they re on my pull list at the comic book store.
