 Update 12/01/15 : This Limited Edition (50 copies) black and white comic was produced for the fans of Top Secret Press. I have just finished the production on the comic and I realize we will have 10 issues left available. They will be $15 a piece for anyone that wants one. This issue might be interesting to Betty Wicked Fans in particular. There are 16 new pages of never before seen Betty Wicked material. Some of the material predates the current comic.

Magic! Adventure! Supernatural Terror! And that is just the start!
Betty Wicked is for Mature Readers, 16 and up.


The Story so far...Elizabeth 'Betty' Wicked, Modern Witch, is the current resident of a haunted Virginia mountain home. There she lives alone (except for the occasional spirit) practicing her magical arts and preparing herself.

Betty was born on July 7th at Seven O’clock. Raised in Hackensack New Jersey by her Mother and Father, Betty learned at a young age she was 'different' from the other children. After an incident, her parents revealed she was part of an age old religious sect that dates back to the times of the Druids.

At the age of sixteen, her parents were killed in a car accident, but the circumstances were suspect. Betty feared the true killers were a Demonic Horde bent on revenge called The Council of The Dead.

Afterwards, she vowed to investigate all Paranormal Activity in an attempt to find her parents true killers.

Now several years have passed and Betty has partnered with Frank Fletcher, psychic who dreams of the Near Future. The two are exploring the hidden supernatural world that is around us!

THE STORY THEN...
IN Betty Wicked #1, Return to Sentinel Hill, the two unlikely paranormal investigators discover an ancient evil that could threaten the world. In the end, when the adventure is over, there are more questions than answers when the Voodoo Queen is revealed to be behind the affair. And she has taken an interest in Betty!

THE STORY Now...

In Betty Wicked #2, Veil, the Voodoo Queens servant, has located Betty and sent his men to capture her.

Once again, Betty is caught with her guard down and finds herself trapped in her bathroom (wait till you see her magic bathroom!) without her pouch and wristband. In desperation, she must turn to her Grandfather’s Demon trapped in her Iphone! Did someone say, ”Let’s take a selfie!”?

In the meantime, Frank must fight his own battle against the minions of the Voodoo Queen. They quickly realize Frank is more than they bargained for!

And this is just the beginning of the story!

Soon after, Betty and Frank find themselves at The Winterland Skiing festival to satisfy Betty's thirst for Extreme sports! Surely nothing could go wrong there! 

This is part 2 of a 3 story arc ending in Issue #3. Betty Wicked #2 is a 32 page comic in full color on quality comic book paper.

Risks and challenges

Hello Old and New fans!

While some of you already know our comic line and products, others are just getting acquainted with the Top Secret Press product line. We are building a steady line of comics with a core of supporters, all of whom I am indebted to for helping me make this possible.

This is my 13th Kickstarter and the total is a big challenge, I have to admit this is my highest total to date. I need all the help I can get to make our total. I believe in this comic (like all of my comics), I want you guys to believe too!

I want to note that some of the color work is on the way for you guys to preview. We should have it all in a few weeks!

So with that,
I hope all of you,
Old and New,
will jump onto
Betty Wicked #2!

Thanks,
And remember, I can't do this without your support!
