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 Batson On The Wire


From WOW Comics #24 (Fawcett~April, 1944) comes this Mary Marvel tale that I've lovingly restored from fuzzy, yellowed pages. Here, Mary literally gets "bombed" (almost...), and it's Uncle Dudley to the rescue! The restoration is recent so, this is the first time these "restored" scans have been available, at least by me. I only wish I had had better source materiel but, I did do up a few detail panels ;)

 Other things to note here: look for an "on screen" truss-up for Mary Batson (around page #8) and Uncle Dudley actually in flight! Also, a surprise at the end of this post which could be found in various WOW and other Fawcett comics of the time.












Here are the detail panels I did, though the quality isn't the greatest...




...aaaaaaannnndd...here's the bonus! It's an IHA (In House Advert) featuring Mary Batson hyping up saving scrap paper for the war drives. Looking back on this makes me wonder if the late, great John Willie used this as inspiration for all his "Don't Let This Happen To You" photos...I'm also running the song "Helpless" by Wishbone Ash in my head as I write this, heh, heh...
