Dynamite Entertainment has announced that pinup girl Bettie Page is heading to Ireland for her next declassified mission as writer Stephen Mooney (Black Widow, James Bond) teams with artist Jethro “Jet” Morales for Bettie Page: Curse of the Banshee.
“I’m delighted to have another crack at the iconic Miss Page and her exhilarating adventures!,” said writer Stephen Mooney. “Bettie and her world lend themselves to so many wonderful facets of comic book storytelling and I’m excited to engage with many of them, accompanied by Jethro’s incredibly evocative artwork. This time, we’re taking her to my home turf! Bettie is someone that 1950s traditional, rural Ireland is not ready for! Throw in an undead Banshee, a slate of grisly murders and an underground, labyrinthian crypt and we have ourselves a party!”

Bettie and her new companion Professor Dakota Smith, an unconventional expert of archaeology, came up short in the jungles of South America in search of the Key Artifact. Clues point them to the heart or rural Ireland and an ancient crypt.
With perils, curses, and maybe a literal banshee – the vengeful spirit of Irish mythology – Bettie must overcome her most harrowing adventure yet!
Bettie Page: Curse of the Banshee will go on sale in June.
