A sort of intro…
I started to write the script of Betty Beat back in 2007, while I was running with my wife our small publishing company Ultrapop. By then, I didn’t have much time for writing, so I had to wait at least a couple of years to get the script completed.
I was in touch with a comics illustrator, who was supposed to carry out the job, but suddenly he appeared not to be interested anymore, so I found another illustrator, this time a girl: same story, hence the decision to illustrate it myself, and here it is!
Betty Beat is an extra terrestrial 18 year old girl who comes from Planet Kromos. The action is set in the 1967-1968 period, with loads of ‘Swingin’’ London imagery. There will be many funny characters coming along as Betty lives her adventures on planet Earth!
This first episode is a story on its own, yet a sort of ‘introduction’ to a much bigger story of about 48 pages. There will be a two-page episode every month.
I hope you enjoy getting to know Betty Beat.
