Dynamite Entertainment has announced a new deal with Fleischer Studios and King Features Syndicate to published new Betty Boop comics for the first time in over twenty years.
In a press release, Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment, says, "Betty Boop is timeless, like Superman, Marilyn Monroe, Mickey Mouse, or Louis Armstrong. She's a fixture of American culture, with such a wide appeal that her image can be found anywhere from a young child's wardrobe to the toughest biker's tattoos. Every generation over the past 85 years has embraced her charm and personality. Personally, I can recall her appearance in the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit as the defining moment in which I first fell in love with the character. We hope that Dynamite's upcoming line of original Betty Boop comic books and graphic novels will serve as the defining moment for a whole new generation of 'Boopers'.
Betty Boop will be solicited in an upcoming edition of Diamond Comic Distributors' Previews catalog, and will also be available digitally through Comixology, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.
Betty Boop is the premiere title in Dynamite’s all ages line, so keep an eye out for more kid friendly titles from the publisher in the near future.
