Delilah Demilo is a frustrated songwriter, a college dropout, and a venemous blue-ringed octopus. In The Benthophonicks, my debut comic, she sets off on a journey to find herself as an artist, but ends up finding a bunch of randos on the way – randos who turn into unwanted bandmates... who ruin her plans... and turn into true friends!

In our last installment, Delilah experienced the torment of the song bearing her namesake in a ridesharing experience with a hermit crab. When he dropped her off at her coral house, the crustaceous cabbie gave Delilah an earth-shattering piece of advice: perhaps she could change the radio station.

I'm Sabine Ganezer, a frustrated songwriter-or-maybe-cartoonist and recent graduate of Linfield College (now Linfield University.) All the panels in this comic were drawn in Procreate using an iPad and Apple Pencil; the lettering was done in Ribbet using fonts by Tom Murphy and others. I chose the title based on the Greek root benthos, which refers to the set of animals living on the ocean floor, as opposed to the pelagos, or open water.
