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...

Come Fly With Me

"Come fly with me..." no, no...not Sinatra. Um...oh yeah..."Up, up and away, my beautiful, my beautiful balloon..."

I bet poor Millie here felt like she was heading for the 5th Dimension when she got tangled in the ropes for this balloon! And to think she pulled this stunt a year before Josie & the Pussycats did, heh, heh...

The wacky DID 5-pager below is courtesy of my personal collection (scans "un-yellowed" by me), and Marvel Comics Millie the Model #171, as depicted by Stan Lee & Stan G. Though done purely for laughs (or is that "laffs"?), who says a damsel has to be tied up to be in distress? Unfortunately, Millie ends up in traction, thanks to Clinkers stupidity...'natch.

And if you don't get the musical references here...you're probably way too young to know them. Either that or I'm way too old, heh...
