“A swift poem of love and violence, a one-two punch – you won’t know what hit you. Adversary captures complex things about early transition, about coming out, about the isolation and paranoia of 2020, in a way that few creators have been willing to do. Delliquanti has been a cartoonist to watch for a long time, but they’ve become one you have to watch.”

Isaac Fellman, Dead Collections

“Subtle, haunting, and deft storytelling that has stuck with me for weeks after finishing the book. Blue is a master craftsman at comics and you don’t want to miss this one; read it twice.”

Melanie Gillman, As the Crow Flies
