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...

The Perils Of Samantha Pt.1


Don't let the above detail panel fool you, for this story features more than one damsel in distress. The unfortunate lass above factors into a four chapter story in That Wilkin Boy #52 (THAT WILKIN BOY, INC. under Fawcett under Archie Comics Group~October, 1982), in which the nosey Samantha Smythe stumbles upon a very bad criminal element. Here are chapters 1 & 2 with a cliff-hanger that sets up for the last two chapters, which will be featured in another post. Lovingly scanned in from my personal collection and colour corrected. The bonus cover scan will be featured in Pt.2 for obviously revealing reasons. Read on...







Uh-oh! Looks like Sam and Bingo are about to be discovered! Can they get out of the house in time? Don't bet on it; there's still three chapters to go...


With a brother like that, I'd've turned him in a long time ago. Just sayin'. At any point, watch for a dramatic plot twist at the end here as well as a couple of bonus detail panels, natch ;)






What's this? No sooner have the police left, than Sam is kidnapped by a couple of hooded thugs as she enters her own home! What's to befall our fair damsel next? Stay tuned for Pt.2...
