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...

Here's my semi-restored 11-pager...

And as always, if any-one out there has any better quality scans or interiors, please let me know!

That Spanish Site Pt.16

Here's part 4 of my collection of Aguila Solitaria covers. If you've been following this series, you'll note that the cover for #549 here, is recycled from #455 (seen in pt.2) Also, when India wasn't clad in a revealing red or tan mini-dress, she could be found wearing a more revealing "feathered" costume...!
