More "Bettie Page"

Dynamite Entertainment continues resurrecting sexy 1950's pin-up "Bettie Page" as a comic book series, with "Bettie Page" #3, available September 27, 2017, written by David Avallone and illustrated by Colton Worley, with covers by Joseph Michael Linsner and Scott Chantier:

"...between cultists, creeps, spies, mind-control rays, flying saucers and the 'LAPD', 'Bettie Page' has had just about enough of everyone's crap. 

"So watch out, Hollywood elites. Now you've made her mad..."

"Like a lot of people my age, I ‘discovered’ Bettie Page through comics," said Avallone, "when Dave Stevens used her to inspire the ingĂ©nue starlet of 'The Rocketeer'.

"She’s such a compelling figure, with such a fascinating life story, that I was thrilled when Dynamite Senior Editor Joe Rybandt asked me if I could build a comic book mini-series around her. 

"After a lot of research into the life and times of Bettie, I chose to put her in Hollywood at the start of the fifties and the beginning of her modeling career...built on some corners of her real biography, and the real history of the time. 

"I hope I’ve made my fictional Bettie as funny, as sweet, as sharp, as tough, and as delightful as the real one."

In the documentary feature "Bettie Page Reveals All" from Single Spark Pictures, and Emmy-winning TV producer Mark Mori, Page narrates her own story prior to her death at age 85 in 2008.

"...shooting to fame in the 1950's with her fetish modeling and racy pinup photos, 'Bettie Page' continues to enchant and inspire multiple generations of women (who continue to emulate her jet black hair, blue eyes and trademark bangs) and men (who long for her). 

"But the story behind her allure, the real person underneath that timeless youthful, sexy image, has been a mystery for the ages -- until now.

"This 100-minute film is the only one authorized by the famed former pin-up as the official film biography on her life."

"Bettie Page Reveals All" was co-produced by Mark Roesler with the participation of CMG, and Bettie Page, LLC.

The doc also includes appearances by Rebecca Romijn, Tricia Helfer, Tempest Storm, Sam Menning, Rev. Robert Schuller, Joey Arias and numerous photographers who worked with the model.
