This Week’s Pulp Purchase: Modesty Blaise
Printed in 1966: She’s slightly younger than me. Merely $5.50 at Aunt Agatha’s. Peter O’Donnell was the writer of the Modesty Blaise comic strip, 1963-2001- This novelization follows O’Donnell’s script of the movie Modesty Blaise (1966), which script was heavily, heavily doctored to be campier and all 1960’s weird. He ended up writing 11 Modesty Blaise novels, a couple short story collections, and over 10,000 strips.
