Before Fredric Wertham and The Seduction of the Innocent (SOTI), before the Kefauver Hearings, and before the infamous Comics Code the comic book racks at local drug stores and newsstands boasted a plethora of delights highlighted by the good girl adventures of the comic book version of Brenda Starr.
These four-color wonders displayed all the finer things loved by comic book buyers: good girls, bondage, a little torture, and other delectable things, which adults thought would corrupt the morals of young and impressionable readers. Now, for the first time in over 50-years, comics fans can read and own these rare comics from another era, digitally restored to perfection and presented in an archival hardcover. Featuring artwork by the legendary Jerry Iger Studio and Brenda Starr Creator Gale Messick, this volume presents the remaining four Brenda Starr Pre-Code books, issues #9-12, and the very mod and 1960's version of Brenda drawn and scripted by Dale Messick.

Hermes Press adds yet another important title to its line-up of classic comic book and comic strip reprints with Brenda Starr, Reporter® by Dale Messick: The Collected Daily and Sunday Strips.
Brenda Starr, the world’s most famous fictional reporter, role model to scores of aspiring female journalists, will now have her own series of reprint volumes starting with the strip’s debut on June 30, 1940. Created by Dale Messick, the first woman to create, draw, and write a syndicated newspaper strip, Brenda Starr, Reporter® successfully mixed romance, fashion, and adventure into one of the longest running features in newspaper history. Even though the strip will officially end its syndicated run on January 2, 2011, the feature will continue through Hermes Press’ reprints of strip’s early years.
The first volume of this series will reprint, for the first time, the first two Sunday storylines in full color. Hermes Press is digitally restoring these Sundays so that they look better than when they were first released. Also featured in this volume will be the first “Man of Mystery” story featuring Brenda’s love interest, Basil St. John.
Brenda Starr, Reporter® started as a Sunday only strip but by October 22, 1945 a daily version of the feature also appeared. The first daily sequence will also be featured in the first volume of Hermes Press’ reprint.
Fans of classic comic strips and Brenda Starr, Reporter® will have a chance, thanks to this new reprint, to see one of the great newspaper features all over again, from the beginning.
