It’s Crisis on Infinite Betties this April with Bettie Page: Unbound

Everyone’s favorite pin-up queen and icon of femininity, Bettie Page, continues her classified adventures this April with a new series from Dynamite Entertainment and a deluxe set of Bettie cards for collectors!

Welcome to Bettie Page: Unbound aka the Crisis on Infinite Betties! The Lovecraftian Great Old One Yog-Sothoth has established himself as an inter-dimensional archnemesis for everyone’s favorite super model/spy (see the fan favorite Bettie Page Halloween Special!). The monstrous being is opening a dimensional gate to kick off an invasion of Earth, collapsing reality itself in the process. Bettie takes the initiative, as always, to run right into the eye of the storm. Suddenly she finds herself a barbarian queen in the ancient past and will stumble into other multiversal freaky Friday situations. Every Bettie Page issue to this point has been leading to this epic climax.

David Avallone brings the whole gang back for this exciting new chapter. Joining their ingenious writer ringleader are artist Julius Ohta, colorist Ellie Wright, and letterer Taylor Esposito. The team cannot wait to continue uncovering Bettie’s secret sagas for fans. On the cover art front, Bettie is “unbound” from the attitudes of her time and free to express herself in a way she would surely enjoy – cosplay! The Queen of Curves dons a certain Dynamite flagship hero’s iconic chainmail armor for a main cover by John Royle. Fans of Bettie and other Dynamite heroines can look out for a Vampirella variant and possibly more… Scott Chantler returns with his cute take on Bettie’s timeless appeal as well. David Williams and Julius Ohta round out the options. Of course no Bettie Page comic book is complete without photo variants highlighting her incomparable looks and charm. 

The Bettie Page legacy is coming up on 70 years of inspiring and appealing to men and women alike. The perfect way to celebrate in addition to the new comic series is the Bettie Page Ultra-Premium Deluxe Trading Cards. Bettie’s timeless All-American sensuality and playfulness is captured expertly by top of the line artists included in this set including Joseph Michael Linsner, David Williams, John Royle, Scott Chantler and more! Also included are some of the most iconic photographs of the beauty legend. Dynamite will also be bringing in the hottest sketch card artists for one-of-a-kind exclusive pieces. Every individual foil pack includes 2 Base Cards, 2 Sketch Cards, 1 special black & white card, 1 puzzle card, and 1 autographed card.
