    The scripting is smooth, the artwork is great, it's got the right color design, and it's a good bit of fun throughout that hits the right notes. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing where this story goes and what Pacheco has in store for Bettie and the gang. Read Full Review

    I knew little about the character of Bettie Page going in. As she is portrayed here, she is bright, modest, and quite charming. The comic looks lovely, and has some great banter.

    One double splash page from the set of the movie left me in awe. So much going on, and yet so easy to digest.

    The plot seems a little tentative so far, but the package is a delight.

    Why did I read this? I don't know! I happened to see an article about the explicit cover to this issue shipping without the censor bag, and of course I had to look. I saw that Bettie Page was a very crazy woman, literally. And like any red-blooded man, that attracted me greatly. So I did a little more looking into her, and she was actually a really interesting character. Of course, knowing there were comics using her likeness was weird. I just wanted to see what they were like. It just seems like a fun, middle-of-the-road adventure mystery comic. It reminded me a lot of the first arc of Amazing Mary Jane.
