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...

Rhoda's Magic Act

From 1941, here are excerpts from the Blackstone the Magician #1 comic, which was based on the career of Harry Blackstone, Sr., er...more or less. These are some of the pages I rescued from a crashed folder. DCM has the book and at some point I'll have to rebuild mine. But for now, let's tag along with Rhoda on two different stories, and see if she can get out of the jams she's gotten herself into...

 In the first story, criminal elements (thugs), attempt to kidnap Rhoda backstage but...they didn't expect Harry's "teleportation" trick to literally make her disappear from their fingers!






In another story in the same book, Rhoda is kidnapped by an evil group of hooded thugs. She's later trussed up and stuffed into a crypt but saved in the nick of time! No magic required on this one, as Harry proves his fists are just as good as his magic tricks.
