22.The Image of a True Woman!

I have always loved a good story!

Modesty Blaise has at all times been involved in good stories!

She conquers all her enemies with clever, powerful techniques, physically fit, strong and unafraid.

Gracefully independent. Dependable coworker and friend.

Many reasons for Willie Garvin to call her Princess, ever since they first met and she believed in him.

Would she become a mother it would be with graze and great sense of justice and responsibility.

She always protects and speaks for the vulnerable and those without voice.

The clue to her success? She believes in herself.

I send many thanks to Peter O’Donell (1920-2010) the writer of the comic strip that lasted from 1963-2001 (!) and  the artist Jim Holdway (1927-1970)

After Jim Holdaway’s death Enrique Badia Romero (1930-  ) carried on. With short interruptions by John Burns, Patrick Wright and Neville Colvin.

They have all put hard work into their art.

Let us all work hard with our art!

May your day be prosperous and full of joy.
