    All in all Bettie Page seems to be a nice departure from the over saturated Superhero scene, an ongoing occurrence at Dynamite Comics.This will definitely add to the collection of a comic collector like myself or to the collection of an avid Bettie Page fan. More Importantly its an homage to a forgotten treasure that today's world desperately needs to be reminded of. She was the standard of beauty after all. Read Full Review

    The reveal at the end of the book feels very 1930's movie serial in that you will find yourself anxiously wanting to know what will happen in the next issue. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Bill Bodkin Aug 23, 2017

    This issue was a fun read, but I love learning anything new about Bettie Page and her personal life. I think any fan of hers knew she was a great person. But, this comic so far shows just how strong and heroic she was too. This woman was abducted, shot at, and even more crazy things happen this issue. She kept pursuing the truth at all costs. The story is going places and the action is nuts. Read Full Review

    Bettie Page is tickling a sweet spot that I normally don't get in comics and this second issue is making me love it all the more. Avallone and Worley are nailing the tone and feel just right for something that's hitting the camp level without becoming camp, showing it from around the edges so it can enjoy and partake in it without becoming it. I'm falling for this version of Bettie a good bit as she's fun and engaging while Worley is making this world as a whole just a lot of fun to get into and engage with. I'm curious as to how big the larger story will be since it takes a few odd turns along the way but it's just doing everything right for me at the moment and I suspect will be an even better read when it's all said and done.

    Bettie Page #2 is the type of comics that's simple and fun because it's not asking too much of its audience, other than an honest suspension of disbelief. The endgame is a worthy effort that doesn't leave much room for exposition or tangents but instead offers just enough to engage and entertain. So if you're looking for a capable heroine with some old fashioned thrills then I'm sure this could be a book for your pull-list. Read Full Review

    If you want a bit of light hearted fun, cheesy 60's stereotypical schlock sci-fi with espionage and action thrown in… you may just enjoy this. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 23, 2017

    The story and art are on this cusp of being something really special, but they continue to be held back for whatever reason. Until then it'll remain a safe and sound story, but not one that's particularly fun to read. It has everything in place to make it exciting and adventurous, but instead, it's just boring and dull" Which seems the opposite of Bettie Page. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Aug 25, 2017

    I am not sure to whom this book is aimed. Is there enough of the cheesecake elements to entice true Bettie fans? Is the character in the book even recognisable as Bettie Page? Why even bother with this book when her facsimile in Betty from The Rocketeer covers pretty much the same ground with more style and flair?If you can answer any of these questions with a positive answer, then this book is for you. Enjoy, as Iam not sure that I did. Read Full Review

    Fans of Agent Carter will enjoy the spies in Hollywood plotline, but this can become lets use the Bettie Page name to drive sales gimmick fast (with said gimmick not working for many) if better attention is not given to the real Ms. Page herself, both in plot and in art. Read Full Review
