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...

Sabrina's Perilous Promotion Pt.1


Archie Giant Series continued with the Sabrina story-lines even after the first Sabrina series came to an end. The tale here is from Archie Giant Series #544 (Archie Comic Publications, Inc.~October, 1984) and due to its "book-length" format (24 pages), I've had to break it all down into three parts. Parts 1 and 3 are the longest. The post title reflects Sabrina being temporarily promoted to "Teen Witch 2" via Head Witch Della's zap, even though the story deals with a mysterious "crystal skull". With her new powers (and cute new costume), Sabrina is able to do things she never could do before...like fly without a broom. And get in bigger zaps on her enemies. This story also brings back Professor Pither, evil, mad scientist. Read on in Part 1 as Sabrina is zapped, trapped and shrunk. Oh yeah, she also does a lot of shrinking, heh, heh. Bonus goodies at the end of each part, natch...












...here's the cover scan and one bonus panel...

Mary Meets The Black Wizard


Here's another weird type of distress; "transmogrification". In this case, being shrunken and turned into stone!! Fortunately for Mary Marvel, she escapes the evil wizard's "magic dust". Unfortunately, everybody else doesn't. There is some GID for those of you into that, also Mary gets in a "bitch-slap" on the femme fatale. Culled from Marvel Family #51 (Fawcett~September, 1950) and via the DCM. Rebuilt by me with new detail panels. This is a thirteen-pager! Bonus goodies at the end :)















Bonus related cover scan and details...

As a matter of fact, there's more detail panels than there is pages too this story, heh, heh...
