Bettie Page #1 hits the shelves at your comic shop on 07/19/2017
Pinup Icon Bettie Page will be returning to comics in Dynamite's upcoming series this summer. Although it's not her first appearance comicdom, it has been over twenty years since we've last seen Mrs. Page in the four color panels. The creative team of writer David Avallone and artist Colton Worely will be welcoming Mrs. Page back.
"In this latest telling, Ms. Page is more modest than Ms. Blaise, but peels more than Ms. Emma. She out-vamps Vampirella, but she's sweeter than Honey West. She puts the mod in model, and the bangs in bang-bang. Now the world can know the truth: her classified adventures back in 1951 Hollywood have officially been declassified." - Dynamite Entertainment.
David Avallone had this to say, "Like a lot of people my age, I 'discovered' Bettie Page through comics, when Dave Stevens used her to inspire the ingénue starlet of The Rocketeer. She's such a compelling, iconic figure, with such a fascinating life story, that I was thrilled when Dynamite Senior Editor Joe Rybandt asked me if I could build a comic book mini-series around her. After a lot of research into the life and times of Bettie, I chose to put her in Hollywood at the start of the fifties and the beginning of her modeling career. It's all fictional, of course, but it's built on some corners of her real biography, and the real history of the time. I hope I've made my fictional Bettie as funny, as sweet, as sharp, as tough, and as delightful as the real one."
Worely adds, "It's just a fun, kooky story. Fun characters, a crazy story, and oh, hey, it stars Bettie Page. What's not to like?"
I could not agree more. We look forward to sharing the upcoming details about this project. Stay tuned!
