Media Release — Make way for the newest member of the ZOMBIE TRAMP universe! Black Betty, a monster hunter for hire, joins the world of Zombie Tramp, DollFace and Vampblade in her own ongoing series. She can absorb the monsters she hunts into her skin, which create the extensive tattoos you can see on her body!
When creator/writer Shawn Gabborin (PUPPET MASTER, FRACTURE) spoke with PopCultHQ, he recommend BLACK BETTY to “Anybody who enjoys a strong female lead, a character who’s look and attitude break the norm, and crazy monster fights… I think if you’re into things like Buffy, Supernatural, or Marvel’s 70s horror comics, you’ll dig Black Betty!”
BLACK BETTY VOLUME 1 collects the first four issues of the series and will be available in a comic book store near you on May 30, 2018. Preorder it using the Diamond item code MAR181030.
