Brenda Starr Artwork (1976) - Signed By Dale Messick

I'll throw in something different...

When I was growing up, Brenda Starr was the real deal. And, come to find out, so was her creator. Dalia Messick used the pen name "Dale" because it was very difficult for a woman to get a strip published at the time. A great coming of age story.

This piece has all the essential elements that any Brenda Starr fan would find necessary to tell Brenda's story...
