A Review: BLACK BETTY #1

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of BLACK BETTY #1 from Action Lab Danger Zone. Shawn Gabborin writes, Michela da Sacco draws, and Rosa “Rosakaz” Rantila colors.

Betty fights monsters. The ones she can’t kill with her considerable fighting skills she absorbs, a strange process which adds to her tattoo collection. She also has a knack for finding trouble, and that knack gets her into a fight with a smoke creature, and another fight with a troll. But she’d be hard pressed to choose which fight is tougher.

She calls herself “Black Betty” and I’d really like to hear the story of why she does that. This story, though, is an excellent introduction to one seriously butt-kicking character. It’s combat heavy by necessity, and the art does a very nice job with all of that action. The fights are tense and the creatures are diverse and creepy.

Black Betty is gearing up to be an awesome addition to Action Lab’s already great group of action characters. She’s a little mysterious and very badass, and I’m excited about this series.

BLACK BETTY #1 is available now from your local comic shop, or online at actionlabcomics.com.
