BOOK REVIEW: Bettie Page #1

Title: Bettie Page #1
Author: David Avallone
Genre: comics
My Rating:

Book Description:

She’s more modest than Ms. Blaise, but peels more than Ms. Emma. She out-vamps Vampirella, but she’s sweeter than Honey West. She put the mod in model, and the bangs in bang-bang. Now the world can know the truth: her classified adventures back in 1951 Hollywood have been declassified. Dynamite, David Avallone and Colton Worley are proud to present The Secret Diary of Bettie Page, in handy comic book form.

My Review

I’m confused about the plot. I know some comics/graphic novels really don’t have a plot but I’m still confused. I understand Bettie Page is from the 50s/60s genre of things but I don’t like this & I love Bettie Page. I truthfully don’t think the story did Bettie Page a lot of justice if any. The illustrations where good though. It would have gotten 5 out of 5 stars had it not had the ‘story’ to go with the illustrations. Throughout the whole thing I kept asking myself ‘Is Bettie Page ok with this?”. I have no idea what she thinks about this but this is how I feel about this comic. Maybe I’m expecting too much?

I received this book from netgalley.com for a honest review.
