    Lagace's art, as I have said before, is amazing. She was the perfect artist for Dynamite to tap for Betty. Her characters emote in ways I didn't think two dimensional cartoons could. So, if your at NYCC this week, stop by in artist alley or visit the Archie booth and buy some of her prints, you won't regret it.

    This is a fantastic read for anyone who grew up with Betty Boop. You can't get this kind of nostalgia just anywhere and it is well worth the read. For those younger readers who don't know Betty Boop that well, now is your chance to become a fan. This issue is a great start to what I expect will be an insanely entertaining series. Betty Boop is back, and better than ever. This issue comes out on October 5th, so make sure to head to your local comic book shop and give it a read. Read Full Review

    I had a lot of fun reading Betty Boop #1. it wasn't a comic I was anticipating in advance of its release, but when I flipped through the comic at the shop I immediately fell in love with the visual style Gisele Lagace brought to the book. Another minute or so of reading one of the song lyrics as I was giving the book a once over, I was sold and added the comic to my stack to purchase. Betty Boop brought a smile to my face and that isn't something that happens a lot with the comics I read. I'm happy to be adding this to my pull list and I look forward to seeing where Langridge and Lagace will bring me next. Read Full Review

    I did not think I would ever have a Betty Boop comic in my pull file, I'll be honest. But this first issue is so peculiar and strange that I genuinely do like it. I hate surprises, but good ones are acceptable. This is the part where I do the Betty catchphrase, but that would be too cliche, and I need to go get a refill on my pumpkin spice latte. *hair flip* Read Full Review

    Betty Boop #1is not a comic for everyone. It purposefully dates itself; subsequently, Betty Boop is a love letter to a time that many readers have little or no connection. Thus, a comic in the vein isa hindrance to some, yet the debut issue is fun for anyone who has an affinity for a bygone era. So if you are someone who loves reading about the jazz age, big band clubs, and the Jitterbug, give this comic a shot. Read Full Review

    The style is classic and the feel is jazzy. "Betty Boop" #1 is very effective and another nice addition to the Dynamite licensed library. (Another final note: it's rated T+ for some reason? I didn't see anything that would warrant that rating in this. Give it to a kid, they might enjoy it much more.) Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Dan Crotty Oct 7, 2016

    There are some solid PG laughs derived from the early talkie style humor that was quite charming. My lone (small) gripe is I wish the art was more dynamic and captured that energetic Fleischer feel. There are spirited scenes of a taxi racing through a neighborhood and a skeleton jazz singer performing but visually I was left wanting more. Read Full Review
