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...

Betty And Cheryl Get Muddy

The battle rages on!

I've saved the best for last. Here (in all it's Dan DeCarlo art gloriousness) is the epic(?) mud-fight between Betty Cooper, Cheryl and Jason Blossom and Archie Andrews. Instigated by one Reginald Mantle (of course) and highly accepted by one Veronica Lodge (the evil co-conspirator). Scanned in from my personal copy of Betty & Veronica Spectacular~Archie Giant Series #530 (Giant Series Magazine under Archie Comic Publications~September, 1983). Please note Veronica's over-whelming enthusiasm. A total 180 degree turn-around from her opposition to mud-wrestling as observed in Veronica Gets Muddy Pt.1. Bonus detail panels of the fight and GGA art! Also, watch for a classic DeCarlo sight-gag on page 2 (hint: Reggie kicks aside a little girl's sand castle, making her the "3rd damsel"...) Bonus cover scan, as well...







Mega-bonus details!

GGA!!!

Go get 'er, Cheryl!

Classic DeCarlo art!

Betty gets the upper hand!

Bottoms up for Cheryl!

Muddy innuendo!

The Grande Finale!
