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...

Kay McKay Air Hostess In Peril Pt.1


It seems like the 1940's had almost as many female heroines as they did male heroes, where comic books were concerned. And the more I dig into the archives over at the DCM, the more heroines I find. Like Kay McKay from Banner Comics. Kay was an "Air Hostess" that managed to get into all kinds of trouble, usually with Axis spies and, usually aboard a plane. But she remained un-usually calm in the face of danger and certain death! Regardless, she always seemed to get the upper hand and defeat the bad guys. I have only two stories involving Kay's adventures that I've restored from older scans I culled from the DCM. Fans of K.O.'s will like these, especially. The tale here is from Banner Comics #3 (Periodical House, Inc. under Ace Comics~September, 1941). In this story, after getting help escaping her abductors, Kay is involved in a forced plane crash into a dense jungle. There, she encounters all manner of jungle beasties, and is later even "electrocuted" while fishing! She's later K.O.'d with a fist to the jaw! Detail panels at the end. Have a read...
