Created by pioneering animator Max Fleischer, screen siren Betty Boop came to newspaper funny pages in the mid 1930s after Fleischer Studios signed a deal with King Features Syndicate. We see our heroine earn her living shooting Hollywood pictures, winning hearts with her sassy style and independent attitude. This album collects more than 125 color Sunday Betty Boop strips—each filling a large page—and 160 black and white strips from the daily papers, many of them unseen since they were first published. Here too is the first color comic strip from Fleisher Studios, Out of the Inkwell, as well as a short-lived color strip starring Helen Kane, Betty's on-screen voice, as The Original Boop-Boop-A-Doop Girl.
