Modesty Blaise: Death Trap

Here's how this works: I finish reading something, and I tell you about it, and I try not to bore you to death.

Another thirteen months of the Modesty Blaise newspaper strip (1976-78) are reprinted here. "The Vanishing Dollybirds" features a remarkable hired killer who reminds me of Camp Freddy from The Italian Job! The storytelling is solid, though this is towards the end of Enrique Romero's first run and as much as I like his stuff, I'm ready for the change in the next book. It's a good introductory volume, I suppose, though there isn't anything as "wow"-heavy as some of the earlier books. Recommended.
