Wed, 12/18/2013 - 4:31pm by yugure
Swashbuckling adventure. Loud explosions. Abundant treasure. A woman skilled with forty-seven sword-fighting techniques and a man who brews the best tea in Europe. And a flying boat. Interested yet? How about a daring escape from jail, a foiled beheading, and a raid on a pirate captain's stash of gems and jewels? All jam-packed into a tidy 167 pages!
Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant is the story, in graphic novel format, of the indomitable Delilah Dirk, a female adventurer in the early 19th century, and her unexpected traveling companion Lieutenant Erdemoglu Selim. Each chapter can act as a standalone story but you probably won't want to stop once you start!
Beautifully illustrated and richly colored, engagingly paced, and quite funny, Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant is not one to miss. And if you enjoyed this one, author and illustrator Tony Cliff is currently working on the second book, Delilah Dirk and the Blades of England!
