At top right are two images proposed for the 1995 United States stamps which honored syndicated cartoon characters. They neatly show the basic range of the character, who tended to alternate between moments of professional confidence and those of personal despair. The image on the left—and with the higher postage rate—is the one that was actually chosen.
Below these is a classic Dale Messick image of her character. Messick, though, was not the only artist to tackle Brenda Starr. In 1980, she was succeeded by Ramona Fradon, who was principal artist until 1995. Linda Sutter briefly took over the strip for about a year. June Brigman has been working on the strip since 1996, and remains its current artist as of 2008.
The first appearance given below is believed to be her first appearance in comic books. Her actual first appearance in print was 30 June 1940, as made available by the Chicago Tribune Syndicate.
