Couverture du numéro 5 de Modesty Blaise Psyko-Spionen (1967-1969, Semic Press, Suède, 1967) réalisé par Antonio Bosch Penalva sur un script de Peter O'Donnell. Le numéro avec cette couverture fut publié également en Finlande et d'autres pays européens. Il est indiqué au dos que c'est la couverture du 6 mais elle fut utilisée pour le 5.
Je suis complètement tombé sous le charme de cette couverture, avec Modesty Blaise en collants jaunes (sans chaussure) poursuivant (avec élégance) le vilain (très vilain) tout en blanc.
Merci Joan !
