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 Witch Was Thankful


Eric Falcon comes to the aid of a damsel accused of being a witch, in this tale from Buccaneers #21 (Comic Magazines under Quality~April, 1950). Note the woman's name: "Thankful Marlowe". Hence the play-on in the title. Read on...








As an added bonus, here are two "gotcha" covers featuring the Lady Dolores in peril. Lady Dolores was a featured character in the "Captain Daring" stories and oft found herself kidnaped or captured. In issue #22 she's trussed to the mast of a pirate ship (in which the scene exists nowhere in the story); and for issue #24 she's being strong-armed on the cover but not in the story, proper.
