22 posts | 25 read | 6 to read
Globetrotting troublemaker Delilah Dirk and her loyal friend Selim are just minding their own business, peacefully raiding castles and traipsing across enemy lines, when they attract the unwanted attention of the English Army. Before they know it, Delilah and Selim have gotten themselves accused of espionage against the British crown! Delilah will do whatever it takes to clear her good name, be it sneaking, skirmishing, or even sword fighting... But can she bring herself to wear a pretty dress and have a nice cup of tea with her mother? Delilah Dirk may be defeated at last. By tulle...in Tony Cliff's Delilah Dirk and the King's Shilling.

#BestofJuly
I managed to read a lot of great comics last month, but my top three were definitely:
1) Delilah Dirk and the Kings Shilling by Tony Cliff
2) Giant Days by Allison, Cogar, and Treiman
3) My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness by Kabi Nagata

Over the month I read 20 comics and 3 novels:
5 - were written by women
11 - had female protagonists
2 - were from indie or small press publishers

Delilah Dirk is a kick-ass protagonist who I am absolutely in love with and I NEED IN MY LIFE RIGHT NOW WHY DO I NOT HAVE MONEY FOR THIS SERIES ARGH!

Its the characters. And the humour. and those goddamn facial expressions! Those little moments and grand fights. Its story beats hit me right in the heart. I might be over-hyping it right now, but I'm so infatuated with this world.

Recommended. Read it. Now. Oh my god. So in love!

The faces in this book are amazing! I love the expressions Tony Cliff is able to craft. Why isn't his comic more popular?

Just as much (if not more) fun as the first one. I'd say this one was stronger plot wise as well. Delilah & Selim make for great heroes. If you've not had chance to see one in person. Do so. The artwork is gorgeous! #comicsfebruary book 2

I really enjoyed this one. Compared to the first one the characters were more fleshed out and the adventure itself was quite entertaining. I hope there will be a third volume soon. I like that Delilah isn't the infallable aloof hero and that she can have a male sidekick without the so often inevitable love story.

Reader's happiness: when you can immediately read on from a great volume 1 to a hopefully even better volume 2 (which has more pages, too).

Delilah Dirk is the feminist superhero you've been looking for. And get this--she can have a MALE friend, with no lingering sexual tension & romantic entanglements--kinda like real life women can!

Was meh on the first one but really enjoyed this one. Lots of adventure but a complexity to Delilah that wasn't there before. Looking forward to more from this series.

This one had a better plot than the first. I look forward to a book 3 and possible reappearance of Major Jason Merrick.

WanderingBookaneer @LauraBeth Mía got lots of love this weekend. My wife and I hosted a #24in48 #readathon sleepover. Mía was a bit less shy than usual in approaching my friends. 4y

Spending the afternoon and evening with a stack of graphic novels (more in the bedroom). Tis not a bad way to go!

I enjoyed the first book and the second was a fun read. It's all about reputations and what they mean but also how far we're willing to defend them. I recommend the series!

A Eurasian-set comic aperitif between Roadside Picnic and Solaris. I think I've finally found my comic book counterpart in Lieutenant Erdemoglu Selim.

Thoroughly enjoyed this swashbuckling heroine and her sardonic, thoughtful companion. Hilarious, thrilling, and a creative role reversal
