RIP Bettie Page

I first learned of Bettie in the 1980s, when The Rocketeer comic by Dave Stevens was first coming out. I’d seen her image a few times before, and chalked it up to nostalgic porn. It turned out, though, that she was much more than that. Oh, yes, Bettie was Satan’s Angel.

By all appearances, she had a rough go of it, but appeared to have put her demons to rest in the 1990s.

Rest in peace, Bettie — you deserve it.
