Notorious pin-up babe from the 1950s Bettie Page passed away yesterday at the age of 85.  She’d been in a coma for about a week after suffering a heart attack.  Page got a resurgence in popularity following Dave Stevens The Rocketeer comic that had Page’s likeness appear inside.  The two were friends for years, and it is interesting/strange the two died so close together.

Another great shot of Page from Stevens book after the jump.
