Storyline   

Mike is a struggling artist who draws the 'Brenda Starr' comic strip for a newspaper. When Brenda comes to life and sees how unappreciated she is by Mike, she leaves the comic. To return her to her rightful place and keep his job, Mike draws himself into the strip. Within her fictional world, Brenda Starr is an ace reporter for the New York Flash. She is talented, fearless, smart and a very snappy dresser. The only competition she has is from the rival paper's top reporter, Libby Lipscomb. Brenda heads to the Amazon jungle, in order to find a scientist with a secret formula, which will create cheap and powerful gas from ordinary water. There, she uncovers a plan to blow up the planet with newly developed rocket fuel.
