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!
(click on the image to enlarge it to full size!)
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.
These great pictures are from a VERY nice donor (who wants to stay anonymous) ….THANKS a lot!
He not only developed a great pictures story with 49 images(!) he also provided the sexy “subtitles” as well.
If you like sexy women in sexy rubber suits with scuba gear, a little suit-destruction and scuba peril…you might enjoy this a lot (as much as I do)
And now it’s time for the 2nd (and final) part!

And a quote from the donor regarding the suit of the “mistress”:
“…Oh and just for the record a total enclosure suit sort of like hers did actually exist in World War Two it was used by the Royal Navy and called the Sladen Suit though I don’t think it was ever worn by a woman and had a habit of killing the wearer and I think my version looked better on here….”
My opinion on these pictures:
Well, I love how she rips her rubber suit. Very sexy!
And how she “gives” the severed oxygen hose to her. I don’t think she could breathe from it without problems…or without the air flow being reduced a lot.
But ok, that’s only my theory…never used a cut air hose for breathing 😉
And how she changes from her sexy rubber suit into the dress…nice transformation 🙂
…in which a young female diver was exploring a tight cave system. She was attacked from behind by a diver, who ripped of her scuba mask and cut her air hose!
She barely survived that encounter…and now she needs to dive again into that cave system.
And guess who is already waiting to get his second chance to drown her…. 😉
Note: This material wasn’t edited by me in any. I was lucky to find it…and it appears to be from a VHS recording…nothing better is available from this rare 90’s series.

And here is the video:
My opinion on it:
Well, she does look really great in that scuba outfit. Even if the picture quality is far from good.
A very brave girl diving alone into such a cave system… especially after the last encounter with the evil diver who nearly drowned her. She knew that he might be there again and yet she dives in there anyhow.
He does make a (fatal) mistake, first he reaches for her mask….but he doesn’t (manage to) pull it off. He grabs her mouth piece and yanks it away. What was his plan with the knife? Does he wanted to stick that into her head???!!! Very odd idea and he misses after all. But due to the fact, that she still has her scuba mask on, she manages to see and grabs the stone.
I like that she fights back this time…knocking him with that stone…giving her the vital seconds to get away.
Ok, again she is lucky that he is stuck under…whatever that is. But after 2 attacks she is still alive and the evil diver is dead after all.
A really nice struggle and fight!
In my eyes not as good as the first one…since I love to see cut air hoses 😉 …but this series managed to produce 2 great scuba scenes in only 6 episodes.
Pretty great job if you ask me!
And I do have a bonus scene for you!
I found this on YouTube, but that channel got terminated some months ago.
It’s nothing as great as the 2 fight scenes…but you might enjoy it anyhow:
Ok, now it is finally time to present this (until now… very rare) gem. After I saw some images of this show…I know immediately that I must see the scenes to the pictures.
I started a post in which I asked if anybody would have a video of that scene. Luckily I got a pretty quick response and got several videos and pictures along with explanations.
THANK you very MUCH “D.” !!! 🙂
And now it is time to share this with you folks! Thanks for subscribing to my youtube channel and for all the patience!
One last thing: This is his original video, I didn’t edit it in any way to avoid any image quality loss and to show “his” video. He recorded it on VHS and edited/cutted it with “primitive” (his words) tools afterwards.
He doesn’t have the complete scene without cuts anymore.

And here is the video:
READ this AFTER you watched the video!
First some selected (translated) background information from him:
“A german dive couple dives to a place where some jewels are hidden (The “Tränen der Kleopatra” (title of this S.O.S. Barracuda movie)).
But they are not alone. The evil diver attacks her from behind and cut her air hose. Afterwards the evil diver battles her dive buddy and is forced to the surface.
Later she is found by some members of the “Barracuda” (police ship).
My opinion on all this:
The struggle between her and the attacker is much too short. The camera work is too fast and too shaky. We don’t see very much of her….
Many “mistakes”: Her tanks empties so fast…. if she had more than a few % of her air left…that’s mistake. It should take much longer until she is out.
She doesn’t fight back and her only action is to use the octopus.
And why is her dive buddy suddenly so far away from her? He was pretty close as he was cutting these cables.
First of all, this is the ONLY scene I know (in a movie or TV series) where a female diver is attacked…her air hose gets cut…AND she actually drowns afterwards. In every other scene with an air hose cut…the female diver always survive. This aspect make it unique! GREAT! A real big + point!
After he drowned we get to see a lot of scenes of her dead body. That is very rare too.
I guess many will love all these “death stare” scenes. And let’s be honest: I do ….like them….somehow. (But my main interest is to see the struggle before the drowning)
I do really like this video! It misses key elements (struggle/fight) for me….BUT it offers a LOT! Very unique stuff….
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…
