Flirting With Bettie

For awhile now, artist Chris Noeth and I have been flirting with a comic book project that we call Alpha Bettie. The year is 2053. Lieutenant Bettie Swift is an officer and fighter pilot with the United Solar Fleet serving aboard the U.S.S. Patriot. She is a member of the Alpha Squad (hence the name Alpha Bettie). She’s a firecracer, but an ace fighter pilot.

I’m not sure when Alpha Bettie will finally launch (and with who the project will launch with), but I just couldn’t keep Chris’ great pages tucked away on my hard drive any longer and not share. So, I’m offering a five page sneak peek of our sci-fi work in progress — just click on the above image for larger view. I absolutely dig that first page with the Patriot soaring toward the reader, while other spacecrafts fly off in the opposite direction.
