This comic has everything that I look for in an adventure: a strong lead, witty banter, gorgeous visuals, and tea! Okay, so maybe I don't usually look for the last one in adventure tales, but I was pleasantly surprised by it. Delilah is a classic action hero with an improbable laundry list of skills, moral ambiguity, and foolhardy confidence but Cliff twists these elements into something unique.
