Manuscript Press is a small press publisher started by Rick Norwood in 1976 and currently located in Mountain Home, Tennessee. It specializes in previously unpublished novels by science fiction authors such as Hal Clement and R. A. Lafferty and also in reprints of comic strips such as Prince Valiant, Modesty Blaise, Alley Oop, and Buz Sawyer. Manuscript Press also publishes a magazine of comic strips, Comics Revue, one of the longest running small press comic books with more than 300 issues to its credit. Between 1995 and 2000 it published 25 issues of Modesty Blaise Quarterly. In 2003 it published two book volumes of Modesty Blaise comic strips, Live Bait and Lady in the Dark, but did not print any further volumes after the British company, Titan Books, began publishing its own line of Modesty Blaise reprints.
