You know that thing where your flight back to NYC is interrupted so you can be debriefed at a secret government base, only to find that base under attack by giant radioactive monsters? And you can't get another flight back home until you defeat the giant radioactive monsters? Sucks, right? But our Bettie can handle it.

    I look forward to seeing what is in store for issue six where we may just find out who was behind the giant scorpions. Read Full Review

    The art of Bane Wade really captured the time period for this story. He kept it clean and crisp, really made me feel it couldn't really ask for anyone better to illustrate Bettie Page. Read Full Review

    I like that the story has headed in a different direction. All the points are lining up and we know everything with Richard, Benway, and now the air force is connected somehow. But, we're not sure what the full connection is. The story is building up to something far more complex than I originally thought it would. If you thought this comic was about a damsel in lingerie you were way off. Read Full Review

    Bettie Page #5 is the series' best issue to date as it finds the perfect balance between Bettie Page's sass and espionage action. Read Full Review

    Bettie Page has a kind of quiet installment here in a way as there's a little nod to story progression and reveals but mostly it just keeps to the action. With giant unexplained scorpions. There's a good bit of B-movie terror from this but it doesn't resonate more due to the lack of characters we're invested in as even poor Bettie feels like a supporting character here, pulled along the way with no new answers or reveals to give it something to feel weighted with. Combine that with Wade's solid artwork that doesn't fit the series for me, especially since there's no chance to show off with fashion here, and it's not a memorable installment. Read Full Review
