In Review: Bettie Page & The Curse of the Banshee #3

Bettie and the Banshee seem to become as one as the curse unfolds all around our hero in high heels (or sensible flats!)

Synopsis: Bettie and the Banshee seem to become as one as the curse unfolds all around our hero in high heels (or sensible flats!) Plus: more clues as to the whereabouts of the Key Artefact.


The Story

Picking up from where the last issue left off. Bettie and her friend Lyssa are faced with a horde of Zombies who are all under the control of the Banshee. As the two fend off the Zombies. Bettie nearly gets taken by the Banshee who speaks to Betties’ mind. Seeing that her friend has been hurt. Lyssa rushes to get Bettie away from the action and takes her straight to the Doctor. Given that the Doctor doesn’t seem to have any conclusive answers. Lyssa decides to visit the old lady who is supposed to be an expert on the Banshee.



Jethro Morales continues to hit us with some great artwork in this issue. I loved all the panels with the Zombies. But the panels in which Bettie gets the lowdown on the origins of the Banshee and her identity are brilliant. I particularly enjoyed the drawings of Cromwell and his round heads and how they were incorporated into the story.



Stephen Mooney continues to weave an interesting and fun story. Indeed, I enjoyed some of the fish out of water-type situations that Bettie and Lyssa found themselves in. But now the story is really starting to get interesting now that we are getting a bit of backstory in regards to the Banshee’s origins. I particularly enjoyed the use of Cromwell and his roundheads as being the main reason for Banshee’s anger. I also appreciated that Mooney has given Lyssa a big more to do in this issue, which has allowed her character to step out of Bettie’s shadow for a bit.

Overall. A solid issue. I look forward to seeing what we have coming up in the next one.
