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...

Jun's Mech Vore Peril


For all you Gatchaman fans out there (me included), I bring you this ten page sequence from Battle Of The Planets #4 (Whitman under Western Publishing Company, Inc.~December, 1979). And though I have the complete book (The Creeping Forest), I only scanned in the first ten pertinent pages (from the splash page to Zoltar's decision to escape). I also did up some lovely, over-sized detail panels of Princess's plight. Not only is she grabbed by "vines", she also has a quick post-tie scene in a hut and later, chased by a giant mole (both the mole, vines and even trees, turn out to be mechanical inventions of Zoltar's, natch).
