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...

Tonia Gets Buried


The cover here is only a partial "gotcha". The scene inside uses a different victim from the one on the cover. Newly restored by me. original scans courtesy of the DCM. From Daredevil Comics #19 (COMIC HOUSE, INC.~October, 1943). Another one of those "killer-hiding-in-the-old-house" scenarios but with some twists to the idea. Cast inside performing a summer stock rehearsal. Daredevil, Tonia and the Wise Guys happen along to get in out of the rain. The set-up is familiar. Julia gives Tonia her bed for the night. The killer is unknowing of this and nabs Tonia instead of Julia. Lots of dark panels. Tonia is found by Pee Wee and she's rescued in the nick. This is the full sequence with new detail panels.

Here is a better example of the cover, with bonus details...
