Betty the Bombshell

Betty the Bombshell

Here’s a Rock Baker rarity, my first attempt at a cheesecake cartoon (many years ago). This comes from a single issue experiment I did called Victory Comics “1942” and Betty the Bombshell was one of my back-up strips. The book was done by drawing the panels individually, scanning them, then doing a layout with a publishing program that let me add the letters. This was printed off into a proof and that was then scanned to create the final page! I had no idea what I was doing, really (my grasp of the human form has certainly improved since then!), and I worked with what art tools I had at the time (which means I did ‘tones’ by using a marker that was almost out of ink). Betty’s story ran two pages.
