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...

The Original Mr. Freeze


Finally got round to "rebuilding" my e-issue of Doll Man #46 (Quality Comics~June, 1953) The first story deals with a character pulled through time named "Frio", who has an uncanny resemblance to Dr. Victor Fries (or Mr. Freeze as he is now known..) However, Frio appeared almost 3 years before Mr. Freeze did (whose 1st appearance was in Batman #121, February 1959.) I've done no further research but would be interesting to know if Frio here, was used as a proto-type for Mr. Freeze...and since Quality became DC Comics...oh, never mind...on with the first Doll Man story...
