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...

Daphne Peril Teaser


The latest issue of the new Scooby-Doo Team-Up series, issue #3 (DC Comics~May, 2014), has Bat-Mite running amok in this amusing flash-back/homage. I enjoyed the issue, especially seeing Daphne in a "Bat Girl" outfit but was dismayed at the heavy art-swiping from old colouring books, especially for Daphne. But then art-swiping isn't new in the comic book world.

At any rate, I'm just providing the detail panels I made from the main pages of my copy of this book ;) unfortunately, Norville got in the way of the second "Daphne-as-Bat Girl" panel but you can get an idea of how she looks in the outfit...


A new character is introduced: "Scooby-Mite". And it isn't long before the two mites are putting each other's "hero teams" into seemingly real danger. Bat-Mite attacks with a skeleton army, followed by a bog of quicksand! You'll no doubt notice the similarity of the poses here. They've been used repetitively for years. In image sdtu3-4, there are four images of Daphne used and three of them I can currently find in a colouring book. Like I said, art-swiping is nothing new...




The very last page of the book introduces yet another new character, "Larry", another mite who's hero turns out to be Robin. So Larry puts everyone in danger and challenges Robin to rescue them all. A couple of nice panels of Daphne all trussed up in front of an archery target, along with Velma. The ending feels like a cliff-hanger and I wonder if this will continue in issue #4. But I'll just have to wait for that to come out in April or May (if not later...)
