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...

Betty Bates In Bondage


Here's yet another Betty. Betty Bates, that is. Betty Bates could be found in the pages of Hit Comics beginning with issue #3. Betty was a female lawyer (and later became district attorney) that had her own, personal way of dealing with criminals. She usually found herself in great peril and was frequently tied up and/or left in dire peril. I have around four dozen or so of her perilous tales, most of which run from four to eight pages in length. This story from Hit Comics #5 (Comic Magazines Inc. under Quality Comics~November, 1940), is a five-pager and is the first time Betty is given the "treatment"...then tossed out of a speeding car over a cliff! I'm taking great care to restore my scans the best I can. Have a read....
