Modesty Blaise is a long-running series, with multiple incarnations in various media that do not share a common continuity, concerning the adventures of gangster-turned-secret-agent Modesty Blaise and her sidekick Willie Garvin.
The three best-known incarnations of the series each have their own page on this wiki:
- Modesty Blaise, the original newspaper comic
- Modesty Blaise, the novel series
- Modesty Blaise, the 1966 film
Other adaptations include examples of:
- Action Girl: Modesty is a capable fighter throughout her appearances in different media.
- Mythology Gag: Early in My Name is Modesty there is an encounter between some soldiers and the orphan refugee who will grow up to become Modesty Blaise. This is not a pre-existing part of Modesty Blaise's backstory, but is based on an incident from Peter O'Donnell's own life that fed into his creation of the character.
- Parallel Porn Titles: Or rather Parallel Burlesque Titles, with "Immodesty Blaize".
