RIP Peter O'Donnell

I was saddened to read this morning that Peter O'Donnell - creator of Modesty Blaise - has passed away.

I've been really enjoying Titan's superb paperback collections of the strip and recommend them highly. Beyond the strips themselves, which are superbly written by O'Donnell and beautifully illustrated by the likes of JimHoldaway, Enrique Romero, Neville Colvin, John M Burns and Pat Wright, I particularly enjoyed O'Donnell's introductions to each story.

Hopefully Titan will eventually collect the whole run but its sad that we won't be getting any more of O'Donnell's brief behind-the-scenes commentaries in the later books.
