Make Delilah Dirk Your New Favorite Superheroine

It’s a strange day in the Northeast, because after the Summer That Wouldn’t Die, we are now experiencing a winter storm and there is snow in the forecast the weekend before Halloween. (And not one “Winter is coming” joke from my geek friends. Seriously, guys.) But anyway, that said, if you’re also cooped up inside — or just unmotivated to travel further than your couch — then you might want to check out this web comic series from Tony Cliff, Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant. Raised by an English father and a Greek mother, Delilah Dirk is trained in swordplay, martial arts, is a “high-ranking member of at least three royal courts,” and is a skilled escapist, so even if you tried to capture her, she’ll be out of there before you can figure out what to do with her. She travels in a flying sailboat and is also crazy. It takes place in 18th century Constantinople, and it feels like Indiana Jones meets The Venture Bros., except with a female lead.
