Did you know Bettie Page had a secret undercover life? No? Then you’ll want to pick up Bettie Page #1 in July from Dynamite Entertainment.
Bettie Page #1 is written by David Avallone, with art by Colton Worely, and follows the fictional undercover work of the iconic pinup queen.
Writer David Avallone said, “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.”
With the release of Bettie Page #1, Dynamite Entertainment will also have a number of variant covers available for you to pick up including work from Terry Dodson, Joseph Michael Linsner, and Scott Chantler.
Limited variant editions in “Black & White” and “Virgin Art” formats are also available as retailer incentives for comic shops that support the launch issue by achieving stocking thresholds. Fans will also be excited by the limited-edition “Black Bag” edition, reminiscent of the pinup star’s era.
Bettie Page #1 is scheduled to arrive in July.
