Welcome to the DPL...

Welcome to the Damsel Preservation League or "DPL" for short. Contained herein, you'll find a multitude of damsels of all ages worthy of preservation, as well as many links to current artists & writers of the DID genre, and many old-school favourites. Although this is basically a research type blog, there may be some occasional "mature" themed comics so, beware of this. Also this blog & is moderated to keep the spam to a minimum. The majority of the images are ones I've personally "rebuilt" from either my own collection or scans found elsewhere on the 'net. Any applicable copyrights belong to the owners and I make no money from them. Also note that this blog is still a work in progress and will be added to as I continue along...

Boots Goes Swimming

Here's an excerpt from "Boots And Her Buddies #6" (December 1948~Visual Editions Inc.) The "Boots" comics were usually book-length but involved a series of inter-connecting stories, that wove themselves into a final conclusion. From issue #6 there were two particular DID scenarios and I only restored those two only. For some background so no-one gets lost; Boots has gotten a call from Mr. Bixby to come out to Florida & help manage his busy hotel. While there she decides to go swimming and almost ends up as a shark's lunch! Movie star Handy Andrews comes to her rescue (as he often does), in the proverbial "nick of time". Below is the DID sequence only, from the time Mr. Bixby sees Boots in the water, to the time she recovers from her fainting spell...oh yeah, and the gorgeous splash page!
