Over the years, a number of other comic heroines have appeared but none of them, neither Barb Wire nor others, are worth a breath in comparison to the unshakable Modesty Blaise! By her side is Willie Garvin. Their relationship is platonic but they complete each other in a superb way.
Modesty Blaise is a feministic role model. The creator, Peter O’Donnell once declared that one of his most important goals when he created Modesty Blaise was “to create a heroine capable of doing things traditionally reserved for men.” So far, hundreds of strips have been published in papers, comic books, comic albums and now on the Internet.
