Description

To my knowledge only two Jim Holdaway tryouts for the Modesty Blaise daily strip has survived. This is one of them. Holdaway did this in 1962 - trying to get the job as an illustrator of the daily strip, written by Peter O'Donnell. Other great artists were tested, but Holdaway got the job - thanks to this work.
