Welcome to the 2nd set of Top Secret Press playing cards!
Top Secret Press, established in 2011, is a leading player in the emerging independent comic book market. Also, a book publisher, they have created Geneological magazines and online magazines. With several Kickstarters under their helm, this is their second foray into the Playing Card market. Striving for the same goal, quality products that can be enjoyed by all Playing Card aficionados, Top Secret Press and John Daniel Taylor IV are committed to the vision based on Betty Wicked #1 for the authenticity of this 54 card deck of poker cards.
A LITTLE HISTORY... Released on October 31st,2014, Betty Wicked #1 launched Top Secret Press into the Horror comic Genre. The cover features artwork of Betty Wicked by Juanfran Moyano and colored by Jay Moyano. This deck is being created in conjunction with the 1st Anniversary of the release of Betty Wicked #1!
ABOUT THE PLAYING CARDS...
The set of 54 cards (52 suit cards + 2 Jokers) will have the Betty Wicked cover on the back of every card. The cards are of excellent quality as is the box. Betty Wicked #1 playing card deck is the second in the Top Secret Press line of Anniversary Signature playing cards.This deck is as beautiful as it is functional and versatile for magic, card flourishing or even just a game of poker.
The Face (front) cards feature a classic playing card style with a familiar feel from the moment you take the cards out, you will be comfortable using them. The deck looks amazingly fresh. But it’s visually reminiscent of what you’re used to seeing.
The deck looks amazing and has a bold look. They back design is the full artwork of Betty Wicked from the Alternate Cover for issue #1.

Risks and challenges
Hello Everybody Old and New!
This is my second deck of playing cards. The Strange #1 was our first playing card Kickstarter and I feel it turned out very nice. The quality was great and I could not ask for anything more. Plus the Kickstarter moved fast, so the Incentives were delivered in a timely manner.
Now, we move on to our 2nd attempt at playing cards with a deck for Betty Wicked #1. One year ago in October 2014, Betty Wicked was officially released and like The Strange, I felt another card deck was in order!
The Kickstarter total is a little higher this time, but this is so I can keep the cost down. I need to sell at least 50 decks just to get the cost under $10. It is an expensive market to say the least. That plus shipping leaves no money left over. Everything goes to shipping and the product.
So with that, I hope all of you, Old and New, will jump onto this series of card decks I am producing for the 1st Anniversaries of the Top Secret Press comic line.
Thanks for the support!
And remember, I can't do this without you!
