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 V...more

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.

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 situati...more

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 more 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.

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.
