Dan DeCarlo's Jetta HC

Dan DeCarlo (w) & (a) & (c)
Dan DeCarlo's futuristic curvy teenage girl Jetta zoomed through the future a full decade before Judy Jetson. In the 1950s, the fan favorite artist, beloved for his portrayals of Betty and Veronica, Josie and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, delineated the madcap adventures of Jetta, "Teen-Age Sweetheart of the 21st Century" with obvious delight. The comics, collected for the first time in their entirety and in living color will be accompanied by a revealing introduction by Craig Yoe. There will also be a bevy of rare unpublished original art and photographs. Plus, as a highly desirable bonus, Jetta pinups by top comic book artists and Hollywood animators.
