    Stephen Mooney gets this new adventure off to a wonderful start and introduces us to some wonderful new characters. Indeed, the introduction of Maire Dineen whose skepticism makes her quite interesting. Also, I really enjoyed the easy banter between Bettie and Lyssa. Read Full Review

    BETTIE PAGE: THE CURSE OF THE BANSHEE #1 is the smart, fun, sassier version of The X-Files starring America's favorite pin-up. The writing, particularly the sharp, witty banter, is excellent, and the art is clean and slick. This is not your grandpa's Bettie Page story, but it 1,000% works. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 2, 2021

    I have a real fondness for Bettie Page comics over the last few years that Dynamite has been putting them out and love to see the character done well. There are certain needs that it has and when they don't get hit, it doesn't feel like a Bettie book and that misses the mark entirely. Stephen Mooney definitely has captured the right tone, maybe just a touch looser than I would have preferred, but definitely in the ballpark with ease. The story has me interested from the get-go with a mix of science and supernatural and this gives Morales more than enough to work with in both settings and in character designs. This is a solidly strong opening installment that has me excited to see what's to come next. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Jun 2, 2021

    There were some great narrative points that made it easy to forget that Bettie Page is a sex symbol. It feels more like if Daphne and Thelma grew up and decided to leave the Mystery van. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately neither the mystery nor the monster is all that interesting meaning there's not much to latch onto. Read Full Review
