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...

Mary's Fox Hunted


I've only been able to rebuild the relevant part of this, book-length, story. The colours are still a bit off, though. Meh. The "fox hunt" comes a bit later at the end. The pages here are culled from three parts of this five-part story-line, from Marvel Family #10 (Fawcett~April, 1947). You can read the entire tale over at the DCM, if you so choose. The ten-page sequence here begins with Sivana's daughter getting loose and re-capturing Mary, with the usual results. The story makes for some great "sci-fi" reading and is an early "atomic" story. But most of you probably don't care about that, right? Right. More "goodies" at the end. Read on...












...just a couple more detail goodies...

One thing has always bugged me about this one. At the end of the Atlantis sequence, Mary is wearing a completely different outfit then she is when she's brought to Dr. Sivana's lair. Since it's impossible (as far as I know) for somebody to change clothes after they've been bound and gagged (if anyone can do it, I'd love to see it) I could only conclude that Georgia, untied Mary, let or made her change, and tied her back up again, why I don't know. I've also noticed that more rope has been added and that Mary's cleave gag (a rarity in comic books from this period, particularly Mary Marvel comics) has been replaced by a triangular over the mouth gag. I know this was probably a simple continuity error, common in comics at the time, but this was such a flaw in logic that it made the story hard to enjoy as a whole. (By the way, ever notice how Billy and Freddy wore the same thing every day and Mary actually changed clothes constantly, of course she was adopted by a rich lady so that might have something to do with it.)

Good eye. This always bothered me as well and it was done many times. Kinda like the ol' "disappearing/re-appearing gag" trick ;)
