Well, with this post I wanna start a new category! There are a lot of comics that have scuba scenes in it. Some of them have scenes with underwater fights or other peril scenes. And some of those should have female divers in it (even most of these action scenes are with men 🙁 ).
So, I wanna present scenes that I found AND scenes that you can recommend (more on that below).
Ok, the scene for today is from a comic book from germany. So most of you should have problems to understand the written parts.
But don’t worry, the story is very simple.
Mike Nelson (the hero from Sea Hunt!) has found out about a criminal couple who steal from yachts at night. So he swims after them (without scuba gear….he wasn’t prepared) and wants to stop them!

Ok, well, the action scene with the female diver only has one panel….but with the text…it really fuels the imagination 😉
English translation of the text in that panel:
Mike passes the girl. He rips the air hose from her tank and forces her to the surface.
Well, that’s a pretty great line 😉
Now imagine that scene in a movie…..wouldn’t that be great?
Ok, these two criminals doing a very poor job. They are 2 against one. They both have full sets of scuba gear. And Mike has no gear at all, not even a mask.
And yet he easily finishes them off….he’s Mike “the scuba warrior” Nelson! 😉
And I don’t know if you actually could rip a modern air hose off a tank….but that’s a nice experiment for some day. 🙂
I will try to get more scenes with female divers in action, but here’s my question!
Do you know any scenes like that? With female divers in action/peril in comic books?
If yes, please let me know! If the scene is good I will offer a free month (or monthS) for the Frogwoman VIP club in return!
Thanks for the recommendations so far (by mail, comment or otherwise)!
I already got 2 great scenes and one good one that will be posted in the next weeks here!
Keep em coming!
Already gave out a total of 6 months free VIP memberships.
Now, it’s time for the scuba fight I promised the last week.
After our frogwoman and her boyfriend explored the sunken city, they now returned with reinforcements. Her boyfriend convinced his army buddies (a special unit stationed in Serbia) to raise the nazi gold from the sunken city. Of course this undertake doesn’t go unnoticed. The local serbian commander still hunts these soldiers after a previous encounter. He knows what they are after and he and his men are on patrol boats right above our frogwoman and her buddies…. The commander sends 3 divers down to investigate and stop the intruders. Our frogwoman and one soldier are salvaging gold as a serbian diver discovers them….

Here is the video:
Well, here is my opinion on the scene [SPOILER ahead]:
The setting is a little dark, some more lights would have been cool (even it is more realistic this way). And the action is paced very fast, a little too fast for me…
…but that are the only real negative aspects to me.
Besides that… the scene offers A LOT:
The guy sneaks up on her…and punches her regulator out of her mouth. Wow, pretty rough solution, but it works and should provide a big shock for her. Don’t know if I ever saw a female diver attacked like that (punching out the regulator).
Then he quickly goes for her mask and rips it down (….which will prove to be a FATAL mistake*).
I love her facial expression and the sounds she makes while he rips off her mask. Very …sexy scene! 🙂
Now she has lost her regulator and her mask and he is about to finish her with his knife while she is defenseless.
She is saved by her buddy and manages to put her mask back on, her regulator back in. And she clears her water-filled mask.
So she can return the favor and save her buddy just in time. And the serbian seal gets finished off rather violently as well. Stabbed and shot….not many divers die that way…. 😆
Well, now to the fatal mistake* of the serbian seal…IF he had pulled off her mask by pulling it up and off her head…she couldn’t be ready for action that fast (if she could recover her mask at all). She wouldn’t have saved her buddy and might be killed afterwards.
But I like that she recovers from the sneaky attack so fast and even stabs the attacker. She wasn’t the (usual) easy victim. And even it is pretty dark, you can spot her quite good, because her partly colored equipment (her buddies equipment is all black).
Well, the serbian diver is pretty optimistic to attack these two. I love his double hose regulator. She should have used her knife to slice his air hose… leaving him to drown….but well, you can’t have everything.
There are many more scuba minutes in that movie…but nothing special enough to upload it too. I recommend you folks to watch the whole movie if you want to see all her scuba scenes. The movie is quite good, besides the scuba scenes. However the IMDB-rating is pretty low…

Thanks to “v” I now know the title of the movie, thanks man! 🙂
Well, in the meantime I bought that movie in france. So, I can present a quality upgrade (dvd quality, much better) of that scene (longer too), and an additional scuba (peril) scene from the same movie 😉

Here is the video:
Much better now, or? 😉
And I got an additional scene for you!

And here is the bonus scene:
And now I guess you wonder about the title of the movie? Here it is:
