Just in time for Halloween!
Check out the fourth installment of our interview with Ray Pointer, animator, historian and author of The Art and Inventions of Max Fleischer. This fascinating - and final - portion of our interview focuses on the Surrealism found in so many Fleischer cartoons, and why we shouldn't let it get in the way of enjoying the opportunity to be amused.
It's the perfect addition to your Halloween viewing, including some seriously surreal clips, like the one above from "Bubbles." Check it out here!
We are absolutely thrilled to report that Dynamite Entertainment's gorgeous, and highly anticipated, new comic book series - starring our own Betty Boop - is now available!
Betty Boop #1, the first comic book, is available with four totally different covers that you can chose from. Each cover features the work of an all-star cast of creative Betty admirers including the legendary Howard Chaykin (American Flagg!), Roger Langridge doing double-duty as an illustrator and series interior artist Gisèle Lagacé, as well as a special Max Fleischer character sheet. Special edition variations will also be available, including a "Coloring Book Cover" by J. Bone (Super Friends), a cover printed on thick paper so fans of all ages can embellish her appearance and a Blank Authentix Edition that fans and comic professionals can illustrate.
"To be able to tell new stories based on Max Fleischer's original cartoon superstar is another great achievement for all of us here at Dynamite," says Dynamite CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci. "Betty Boop is one of the most recognizable faces in the history of animation, a timeless American cultural icon. This new series will delight comics fans young, old, and everywhere in-between!"
You can purchase the first comic book in the series now at Dynamite Comics, where you can also find out more about release dates for the rest of the series.
