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...

Daredevil Blips DID Gotcha!

Quite a few times I'll be reading through a random comic book and find only one panel in a story worth noting. I call these "blip" panels. A bit different from a "blink-and-you'll-miss-it" panel, as the panel is pretty much right in your face, so to speak. The two below are from the original Daredevil comic series of the 1940's & '50's.

Scene from Daredevil #27 (Oct., 1944)

Scene from Daredevil #62 (May, 1950)

I've also rambled on previously about "gotcha" covers; those lurid covers that entice one to pick up the comic book...only to never find the actual scene within the book, itself. Below is a restored scan for the cover to Daredevil #27. As you can tell from the above blip panel, there is no match.

"Gotcha" cover for Daredevil #27 (Oct., 1944)
