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...

Robin Kane

Here's a "girl detective" that's so obscure, she doesn't even have a wiki page! Meet 13 year-old Robin Kane and her BFF Mindy Hunter, as they are hijacked in mid-flight. It's up to Robin to fly the plane in after the pilot has been rendered unconscious by the would-be hijacker. The hijacker himself is tripped up by Mindy and he falls and slams his head against the co-pilot's seat. With help from the controlle tower, Robin is able to fly the plane until the pilot revives! The book is titled "Mystery in the Clouds" and was written by Eileen Hill, with illustrations by Sylvia Haggander. This is book #5 (Whitman 1971) in the very short Robin Kane series.


Diego says to take the plane back over the border!
