Betty Boop #1, the first in Dynamite Entertainment’s all-new comic book series, is out today for the opening of New York Comic Con and it’s getting rave reviews from the comics community. Award-winning writer Roger Langridge (The Muppets) and artist Gisèle Lagacé (Archie) bring Betty, her pals. Koko the Clown and Bimbo, and her irrepressible Grampy to print for the first time in 30 years.
Betty Boop #1 features four traditional comic covers — from an all-star cast of creative admirers, including the legendary Howard Chaykin (American Flagg!), Roger Langridge (doing double-duty as writer and illustrator), series interior artist Gisèle Lagacé — and a special Max Fleischer character sheet. Special edition variants will include a “Coloring Book Cover” by J. Bone (Super Friends), printed on thick paper so fans of all ages can embellish her appearance; a Blank Authentix Edition that fans and comic professionals can illustrate; and a rare Howard Chaykin “Black & White” incentive edition available to qualifying retailers.
In addition to local comic book retailers, fans may purchase copies of Betty Boop #1 through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, iVerse, Dark Horse Digital and, of course, Dynamite Digital.
