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 Batson's Perilous Flight


Here's the complete, four-page sequence of Mary Batson's DID/DIP scene from Marvel Family #48 (Fawcett~June, 1950). I sourced the original scans from the DCM (which were small) but managed to make some nice colour restorations and detail panels. The sequence is from the story "The Four Horsemen Ride Again" (if you want to read it in full, go to the DCM & look under the "Fawcett" section) and appears near the end. The story in short: The Marvels investigate a string of unusual events. Each one goes solo to check things out. Mary uncovers an insurance fraud scheme among an oil field fire. Unfortunately, she's captured. This sequence is one of the few times that finds Mary getting K.O.'d twice in one story! And, of course, she gets the full treatment. Watch for an OTS carry-off and one of the neatest OTM gags I've seen on Mary, in quite some time. Oh, yeah...there's that whole "getting-tossed-out-of-a-plane-while-bound-and-gagged" bit. Not to mention the raging fire below! Lots of detail panels for this one...





...and here's a plethora of detail panels...
