In Case You Missed It: Betty Boop TPB
The Betty Boop series from Dynamite may have flown under your radar, but it has a creative team that screams for you to consider buying this collection. Roger Langridge has written great comics, some of which he’s drawn, and is capable of writing not only comedy, but some stories that you can really get into. Gisèle Lagacé has an art style that lends itself to a variety of stories, as shown by her work on Jem and the Holograms and her own webcomic, Ménage à 3. SHe can take a fun story and inject it with all the humanity needed to keep you pulled in. I’m personally looking forward to re-reading this series in one sitting.
Below is the solicitation from Dynamite, and some preview pages Dynamite sent out for the first three issues collected. Do yourself a favor and add this collection to your bookshelf.
