Modesty Blaise returns

Modesty Blaise has returned to the Evening Standard. Monday's edition featured a banner across the front page announcing her return and, inside, readers were treated to the first episode of a reprint of the very first story, 'The Gabriel Set Up' 'La Machine'.

(* Thanks to Richard Sheaf for the heads up on this and the above scan. Modesty Blaise © Associated Newspapers/Solo Syndication. Thanks to Robbie (see comments) for the correction. 'The Gabriel Set Up' was, of course, the title of the first book, as reprinted by Titan.)

O_O

Do they say if there's any plans for new stories or just reprints? (either way they ought to boost the sales of the big reprint books! that can only be a good thing)

Damn no Evening Standard in my area.

They've started with the first story, "La Machine". "The Gabriel Set-up" is the third story.

I stopped buying the Standard when the strip finished. Even though I've got all the reprints I was really pleased to see they're running it again.
