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...

Delia's Dire Dilemma


The Saint comic debuted in 1948 from Avon Periodicals (at least from what I've gathered from the DCM.) The first issue was full of damsels in distress, such as this Prop Bowers story. Here, Prop's "Girl Friday", Delia, gets herself captured by thugs out to take over some land. And is it me, or does the back of the car she's "riding" in get bigger with every panel? Delia finds herself in multiple perils, especially the last page where she (while still bound hand and foot) manages to leap from the moving car! Read on...







A few details from these poor scans...
