It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. So it was really cool to discover that the ladies on “The View” were planning to get animated and dress up for Halloween as some of the world’s most beloved cartoon characters. And guess what? Jedediah Bila went red — dressing up as moi!

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.
Hola, Betty Boop amigas in Mexico! Look for the brand-new fashion collaboration designed by Royal Closet launched exclusively for sale in a selection of 30 Liverpool stores, the country’s largest chain of mid- to high-end department stores.
The Betty Boop by Royal Closet collection, which features clothing, pajamas, swimwear and accessories, is inspired by different trends of gender empowerment, expressed through embroideries and prints (abstractions, lips, eyes, polka dots, hearts) and limited to a palette of three colors: white, black and red.
The Royal Closet brand, owned by Montserrat Oliver (actress, fashion icon, TV host and entrepreneur), and Carlos Ortega, dovetails beautifully with Betty Boop. The new fashion line represents an amazing translation of the vintage style character that is perfectly suited for today’s contemporary women who are independent, versatile, feminine, bold, with unique personalities, who are not afraid to express themselves and be noticed. Just like Betty Boop!
In celebration of World Emoji Day on July 17th and the brand’s global #PepsiMoji campaign, Pepsi® opened a limited-engagement interactive exhibit that follows how love has been communicated through the ages.
Love: From Cave to Keyboard, imagined by Pepsi, explores the evolution of communication through the emotional lens of love – from primitive etchings on earthen walls to illustrative hieroglyphics; icons drawn by hand to icons on the screen; from <3 to today’s evocative global language.
Betty Boop (#booplove) is getting a modern makeover for today’s generation, complete with her very own PepsiMoji design and layered augmented reality bringing her to life.
