The Jerry Lawler promo card is inspired by the work of 1980s painter Patrick Nagel, included in a limited number of packs.
“I’ve been a Bettie Page fan for a long, long time,” said Jerry Lawler. “As an artist myself, I’ve always been a huge fan of pinup art from models and legends like Gil Elvgren and Olivia. Bettie and I are both from the beautiful state of Tennessee. There was a kind of connection. I was the king of wrestling and she was the queen of the photoshoot! She always seemed special to me. I’m excited about the fact that the Dynamite cards and comic books are letting today’s fans get acquainted with an icon like Bettie again or for the first time. It’s not just art to me, it’s doing a piece for one of my all time favorites. Its a win-win!”
Another reward tier option for supporters are Bettie Page graphic novels by David Avallone and Colton Worley.
