This Lot includes an original Pen and Ink Modesty Blaise strip by Patrick Wright accompanied by a 1st edition limited edition book 'The Art of Modesty Blaise', featuring artwork by Jim Holdaway, Enric Badia Romero, John M Burns, Patrick Wright, Neville Colvin and Frank Hampson. This is a pristine copy of the book, limited to only 600 copies worldwide, and features hundreds of Modesty strips.
This original artwork is in fantastic condition and was drawn for strip No.4857A in 1980 for the story 'The Brethren of Blaise'. This was the first story that Patrick Wright completed himself.
The story tells of Modesty and her companion Willie Garvin tracking The Brethren of Blaise, a sinister group attempting to resurrect the Arthurian Wizard Merlin who has been in a coma for fifteen centuries.
All original speech bubbles in place and there is a pencil signature on the reverse shown in the photos.
This is a great strip by Wright, who has included a fantastic portrait of Modesty in the last panel.
