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...

Captain Tootsie To The Rescue!


Back in the 1940's & '50's there were many adverts throughout the comic books, that involved many a damsel in distress. From Wild Root hair creme to RC Cola. And, of course, candy. Here are but two adverts for Tootsie Roll products featuring "Captain Tootsie" as the hero. The first advert is from 1948 and involves the ol' "Damsel-on-the-broken-trapeze-act"...


...looks like all Captain Tootsie needs is a Tootsie Pop for energy, instead of some weird chemical or rays, wot?


This second advert is from 1950 and features a very inattentive girl, who strays onto thin ice, quite literally! Hey kids! Just grab a Tootsie Roll for quick energy and you'll have no problem rescuing that poor damsel!


NOTE: This is not an endorsement for any product, whatsoever.
