Go Big or Go Home
Comic Unknown would like to welcome a tenacious blue alien named Delilah Blast. This self-titled comic takes place in a steampunk post-apocalyptic era where science governs the world. Our blue alien turns sixteen and wants to join the Earth's Science Association, E.S.A. for short. Unfortunately, she overslept and missed her opportunity to take the entrance exams let alone she's late for school. Nothing was going to stop her from attempting to join the E.S.A. Her dream from earlier piques the interest of her godfather and invites her to a special demonstration. Given another opportunity presenting itself, Delilah wasn't going to let this opportunity slip from her (even if it means going to another planet). Will her resolve be enough to make her wish fulfillment? Afterward, there's a bonus short called Duplicity about a teen flown to Tokyo as an exchange student with a deceptive twist.
Delilah Blast is a rare delight that feels very genuine. Marcel Dupree created a brilliant and energetic story that follows the courageous female protagonist Delilah. The series is something very scarce in the comic book realm as the well-executed visuals done by Joel Cotejar and Ramon Bunge are vibrant and pops on every page. The collaboration done by this team is phenomenal and it seduces you to the very end wishing for the next issue to arrive sooner rather than later. Delilah Blast Issue One was successfully funded on Kickstarter on March 18th, 2017. To learn more about the series, make sure to follow the blue alien on Facebook. As for the bonus comic, Duplicity. After reading the story the name is quite self-explanatory and it was written by none other than Dupree himself. Both the narratives he created are short and sweet leaving you in awe and wanting more. The artwork belongs to Pericles Junior and Ryan Burt respectively and it works.
