In this collection of “secret diaries,” we follow our femme fetale, Bettie Page, as she dodges the cops, secret agents, and cult members all while trying to make a living as a model and movie star of B movies with aliens… All while helping beat the bad guys.
This book is a whole lot of cheese and I kinda love it for that. I am an absolute sucker for pin-up art and all the guest art and the comic itself is lovely to look at; even with the batshit crazy ideas. However, there’s this sensation of being in a glitter bomb; shiny, pretty, but confusing in all it’s bright colors and movement. At the end, I had to re-read it all because I didn’t remember what exactly happened. Gotta give it a 3 out of 5 for that but it sure is pretty.
