Summary
Lovable ne'er-do-well Delilah Dirk is an Indiana Jones for the 19th century. She has traveled 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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Selim is used to being an overlooked and underpaid member of the Turkish Janissary Corps, but when the Agha's men capture a prisoner the scandalous woman who calls herself Delilah Dirk Selim finds out the hard way that maybe he needs a little excitement in his life. Delilah is a swashbuckling heroine who will have readers constantly wondering what will happen next. Selim, on the other hand, is more reserved longing for some tea and quiet but once he gets sucked into Delilah's orbit, he's unable to resist the taste of adrenaline. Anchoring the story is Cliff's lush artwork. Each panel brims with distinctive people and detailed settings without ever feeling overstuffed. His glowing, vibrant color palette changes smoothly, transitioning easily from warm candlelight to dusty fields to grassy farmland. One two-page spread in particular is a masterpiece of serenity, as Delilah and Selim enjoy a quiet, purple-hued night by a campfire before once more rushing into the fray, whisking readers eagerly along with them. A terrific action story for both older and younger teens and anyone else with an insatiable appetite for high adventure.--Wildsmith, Snow Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Cliff pulls out all the stops for his first graphic novel, which he originally published online, pairing a wisecracking, death-defying heroine ("Guard!" she calls good-naturedly from her prison cell, "I'm escaping") with a sensitive minor military official prone to overthinking when lightning-fast action is required ("Jump? Surely not! What about the other options? Are there any other options?"). The plot, such as it is, follows Lieutenant Selim as he is dragged willy-nilly into Delilah's life of action and danger when all he wants is a hot cup of tea; really, though, it's a vehicle for blood-pumping episodes of derring-do and heroism involving swordplay, artillery, aqueducts, piles of treasure, tyrannical Ottoman rulers, treacherous officials, and the occasional quiet idyll in Delilah's flying boat. Sunlit landscapes, candlelit interiors, and nighttime explosions give Cliff opportunities to show off his splendid draftsmanship, while the dialogue provides a constant stream of sardonic banter ("Kill me with what? That rope? You'll give me rope burns 'til I yield?"). Cliff apparently took five years to write this, but fans will hope a sequel doesn't take that long. Ages 12-up. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
