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...

Nancy Drew Cover Perils Pt.6 Knockouts

Very few of the U.S. Issue Nancy Drew covers feature a knocked-out or "K.O.'d" damsel. I only note a handful below. And while I have these set in a separate category, they could also be included in my "Unknown Assailant" category. As for how many times Nancy herself has been knocked out...I've lost count. For in some of the books she's been K.O.'d twice and even thrice!

Nice little selection.
My fave is "The Puzzle at Pine View School. It a has a real sense of peril about it ( It puts my in mind of one of those 70's/80's slasher /horror video's, though this cover is much more restrained( but equally if not more effective) than that sort of "box art"
You are spot on about Nancy and how often she got "KO"ed
