An emotional Modesty gets to the bottom of a crime in this original pen and ink Modesty Blaise strip. Luki is confessing to a crime but also explaining that he had been emotionally blackmailed. Luckily he trusts Modesty to get to the bottom of things.
Peppered with Romero's unmistakable brush strokes and heavily signed by the artist in the final panel, this strip shows some fabulous use of light and shade as well as a variety of inking techniques.
This strip is number 7592 of the Modesty Blaise series and was published in 1991. It forms part of the story 'Walk-About', set in Australia.
Enric Badia Romero has drawn more Modesty Blaise strips than any other of the Modesty Blaise artists, and is also responsible for the extremely popular strip AXA.
Modesty Blaise was Peter O'Donnell's most famous literary creation and has appeared in many popular novels and newspaper strips for nearly 40 years.
The strip has been kept in the artists' personal collection for over 30 years and is being made available for the first time.
