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 Bee In Bondage Pt.1


I could've named this post "Pat in Peril" for the main character but, and as you'll see in a later post, it's the younger actor "Betty Bee" that is the main subject, even though she's only OTS carried up a ladder in this sequence and apparently drugged.

Some background: meet Pat Somerville, junior reporter for the Barstow Star newspaper. She also wears turtleneck sweaters (for those of you into that). Pat appeared as the main character in the story-line "Seeing Eye", as found in Judy & Emma comics (a.k.a., Judy comics). In the story, Pat has been given a pendant that allows her to "see" into the past via people's lies. In this sequence, Pat questions betty's aunt,  Martha Rivers, and soon discovers that Betty had been kidnaped. Pat "sees" the scene in her mind, clear as day (above detail panel). The sequence here is from Judy & Emma #1040 (15 December, 1979~D.C. Thomson Co., London).

After going to the area where Pat thinks Betty is being held, she's accosted, strong-armed, hand-gagged and dragged off into the shade of a group of trees. I only wish the panel was drawn better. Stay tuned for Pt.2...
