Bio:
Dale Messick is best known for her work on and creation of Brenda Starr. She was the first female syndicated comic strip artist in the United States.

In addition to her Eisner Award, she also received the Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement award in 1997 and the National Cartoonist Society's Comic Book Award in 1975.

Date of Birth: 11 April 1906
Birthplace: South Bend, Indiana
Date of death: 5 April 2006




Awards:
  • 2001 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards - Winner - Hall of Fame: (Judges' choice)

Notes:
Messick was honored by the United States government by having her creation, Brenda Starr, placed on a US postage stamp while she was still living. This defied the logic of the other characters so honored in 1995—all of whom were created before 1950, and all by creators who had already died. Messick was the only living comic creator to be so honored, and the reason comes down to affirmative action. The US Post Office desperately needed to include a character created by a woman, and Messick's Starr was the oldest available example.
