Our Family Friday podcast looks at ‘Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant’ and ‘Delilah Dirk and the King’s Shilling’ by Tony Cliff (all art above by Tony Cliff) from First Second. Paul drools over the lively and exhilarating art, but also heaps praise on the ranginess of the adventure stories that Cliff meticulously crafts and tells in these compelling tales of the butt-kicking Dirk and her companion and friend Selim. Let’s dig deep!

Study Comics with Paul is a comics analysis podcast. It’s like a comics seminar, but the only prerequisite is love. I’m Paul, a literacy researcher, English teacher, and comics reader, and every week I take a work from a wide range of comics and apply various approaches to analysis.
