Brenda Starr, 1945

Brenda Starr will no longer run in the newspapers as of Jan. 2, 2011. Click here for an article about the end of the strip.

The Washington Post says we haven't seen the last of Brenda, however:
Tribune Media Services says Brenda Starr won't retire entirely. Working with Hermes Press, the syndicate says that it will publish a series of books titled "Brenda Starr, Reporter by Dale Messick: The Collected Daily and Sunday Newspaper Strips" and that the first volume will appear in June.
Let's hope they include the paper dolls! Below, Dale Messick's classic Brenda, Jan. 7, 1945, click on image for larger view:
