'Betty Boop' is a graphic novel by Roger Landridge with art by Gisèle Lagacé. It includes 4 individual issues, but they tell one larger story. I loved the art and feel of this story.
Betty Boop works at the Oop-A-Doop Club. She wants to work on stage, but she's stuck waiting on tables while Scat Skellington and his band of skeletons work the crowd. Her boss Mister Finkle is miserly, but she's got friends in the club like Koko the Clown and Bimbo. She lives with Grampy, who is also an inventor. A group of ghosts wants to chase Grampy and Betty out of their house, but Betty is not about to let them. She even gets a chance to have a musical number here and there.
The art is fabulous and looks like old animation. The color is even a more muted shade than normal which adds to the mood. I really liked the stories. Since we can't hear the singing, bad singing is done with bad rhyming, which I thought was pretty clever. This is an appropriate graphic novel for all ages.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Dynamite Entertainment, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
