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...

Connie Martin's Dire Dilemma


Found this short-story nugget (a very breezy four-pager, yet!), in the pages of Calling All Girls #1 (PARENT'S MAGAZINE PRESS, INC.~September, 1941), which involves one Connie Martin (Mayor Martin's daughter), who runs afoul of two bandits. This is an all-text story with some nice illustrations, especially the last one (detail above). Restored the best I could on this. Original scans sourced from the DCM. Kudos to the scanner and poster of this rare book! This was Connie's first appearance and, as yet, there are no other early issues of CAG posted but this tale indicates that the series will continue. If any-one has scans or knows of the other tales, let me know, please! Read on...
