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...

Mary the Messenger


In WOW #11 (March, 1943), Mary Batson wants to see how folks in the real world live (as compared to her relative comfort...) So, she quickly gets a job as a messenger, delivering telgrams...you know, those little yellow slips of paper that existed decades before "instagrams"? Along the way she meets a lot of interesting folks & even helps an Indian chief regain his confidence.










At any rate, it's a good thing her butler, Jives, decides to play "Sherlock Holmes" and follow Mary to find out where she's been off to...unfortunately, Mary is captured during one of her deliveries and it's left up to Jives to rescue her...or not...


Using the ol' "playin' possum" routine catches the crook left to watch Mary, off guard, heh, heh...he obviously didn't study "Damsel Escapology 101"...





Please note that this is the final "Mary Marvel Monday" post for 2013. But there are more stories of Mary's adventures to come in 2014. See you all then & have a great new year!
