This was going to be my last post on awesome new female characters, but I'll be doing another order post as a favour to Jazzypom.

This one is dedicated to Tara Chace aka Tracy Carlisle of Greg Rucka's Queen and Country. You can buy the definitive editions for a decent price on Amazon and they're big meaty tomes, collecting up to a dozen issues in each one.

Queen and Country is about the bureaucracy of the international spy game, or "What would the Bond films be like if Moneypenny and M were the stars?"

Tara Chace is a Minder, working for Special Ops in the Secret Intelligence Services for Her Majesty's Government. Minders go out and do all of the dangerous, secret stuff, but also all of the mundane, drudgery of paperwork in a windowless office.

This first set is from Operation Blackwall (Queen and Country #15) )

Two ops down the line and we get to Operation Dandelion )

If you want to find out Mwama's story, either buy the definitive volume 2 or just watch it in Sandbaggers, a TV adaptation based on Queen and Country written by a former naval officer turned television writer from the future.
