Author: Tony Cliff
Pub. Date: August 27, 2013
Publisher: First Second
Formats: Paperback, eBook
Lovable ne’er-do-well Delilah Dirk has travelled to Japan, Indonesia, France, and even the New World. Using the skills she’s picked up on the way, Delilah’s adventures continue as she plots to rob a rich and corrupt Sultan in Constantinople. With the aid of her flying boat and her newfound friend, Selim, she evades the Sultan’s guards, leaves angry pirates in the dust, and fights her way through the countryside. For Delilah, one adventure leads to the next in this thrilling and funny installment in her exciting life.
A little bit Tintin, a little bit Indiana Jones, Delilah Dirk is a great pick for any reader looking for a smart and foolhardy heroine… and globetrotting adventures.
This was a fun, action-packed graphic novel! I thought the story was interesting! The art is stunning! I liked the characters and can’t wait to read more! I think anyone that likes a strong female character and adventure would love this graphic novel!
Tony Cliff – a life-long resident of Vancouver, British Columbia – began his comics work as a contributor to the Flight series of anthologies. His first major published work, Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant, is a NYT Bestseller, a Publishers’ Weekly Best of 2013, and was nominated for Eisner, Shuster, and Harvey awards. Delilah Dirk and the Third Pillar of Hercules will be the third book in the series, following 2016’s similarly well-received The King’s Shilling. He is strongly opposed to bios that conclude with one quirky attempt at humour.
