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...

Not Hit Girl


Brian O'Brien (alias "The Clock"), was introduced in the first issue of Crack Comics (Comic Magazines under Quality Publishing), in May of 1940. In January of 1942, in issue #21, a smart-mouthed rambunctious young girl named "Butch", was introduced in The Clock stories. Neither her true identity nor age was ever revealed and both characters were gone by issue #35 (their last appearance, from what I've read.) Here is the 7-pager from issue #21, mostly restored. I have to wonder if Butch wasn't an early proto-type for today's "Hit Girl"...stranger things have happened...

 Have a read...

Now Butch is some kind of a spitfire! Excellent selection, old sport!...

Thanks, MM! Though Butch appears tough on the outside, she can still emote a bit of fear at times ;)
