The End Of Brenda Starr, Girl Reporter

Illustration for article titled The End Of Brenda Starr, Girl Reporter

After over 70 years in business, lady journalist Brenda Starr is being retired. One early-round pitch had Brenda as a female pirate, but instead she became "the definition of a career-woman even before that term came into vogue."



When I was a wee lass I wanted to be Brenda Starr. She had 2 things I desperately wanted: she was a writer, and she had red hair. Well, eventually I got red hair, and I've been a writer for the last 15 years. Maybe someday I'll even be able to make a living at it. I'm no Brenda Starr - but then, there was only one. Bon voyage, Ms. Starr.
