Modesty Blaise co-creator Peter O'Donnell dies

From the London Evening Standard:

Peter O'Donnell, creator of the Evening Standard's long-running Modesty Blaise cartoon strip, has died at the age of 90.

Mr O'Donnell, who had been suffering from Parkinson's disease, got the inspiration for his all-action heroine from a young woman he encountered in a refugee camp after the Second World War.

I believe he was the writer, not the artist.
