    Another rollicking adventure with Delilah Dirk. This one includes settings of ancient civilizations. The ruins Cliff has drawn are delightful! A real treat. Highly recommended. I love all the ruins and Mediterranean vistas, and, of course, DD's swashbuckling & Selim's curiosity/...

    Another thrilling adventure, replete with narrow escapes and treacherous men (some of them hunky). Once again the art is wonderful, particularly the figures--but once again I had to deduct a star because Cliff just can't depict falling rocks and other sudden action with any visual cohe...

    This is a fun series, but nothing terribly special. Sort of a weird mix of lots of text on a page and then pages of action sequences with hardly more than an ?ooof?. The art is pretty great. (I almost wrote ?fantastic?, but then I realized that it?s not that at all. I mean, i...

    Done right, these could be AMAZING movies. Disney has the rights. Don't mess it up, Disney. This is one of my favorite series because Dirk is such a cool protagonist - unapologetically flawed, but willing to change, and still a total badass. Her friendship with Selim is so well dra...

    Delilah Dirk and the Pillars of Hercules by Tony Cliff finds the graphic-novel heroine on an adventure to find a rumored sunken city. The tale begins in Turkey, where Dirk outsmarts a despot in control of a coastal fortress to allow a ship safe harbor. In the process, she meets a Dutch...

    A new Delilah Dirk moves immediately to the top of my to-read pile! I love this series and this was a wild new adventure about a stunning archaeological find, a journalist with hidden intentions and an assorted other cast of villains and double-dealers. A tad heavier on the adventure a...

    Barely escaping a disastrous fate when she's accused of being a spy, Delilah Dirk and her loyal companion, Selim head to Asia, but then end up back in Europe after meeting up with an adventurer and writer, Van Hassel, who pens various accounts of Delilah's adventures for the newspapers...

    Swashbuckling Regency-era adventurer Delilah Dirk and her long-suffering companion Selim are in Turkey, once again doing something that will likely get them killed but fortunately does not. While nearly getting killed, they encounter a Dutch journalist who has heard rumors of a great f...

    I love Delilah Dirk! How does it not take Tony Cliff 850 years between installments (I mean, suuuper glad it doesn't, but really how?) The art is so lush and detailed AND the stories are always the best. I am, as usual, amazed. ...

    Another fun and gorgeous installment of the Delilah Dirk adventure. This one especially felt like a pulp action story, with swordplay and backstabbing and mystery and the discovery of ancient cities. It was enhanced by beautiful, detailed art and charming characters. ...

    By far the strongest in the series. This entry felt like a cohesive story from beginning to end that offered not necessarily twists, but unexpected directions of the narrative and story. Selim is more prominent and active in this round, taking the role of the narrator and participant i...

    Delilah Dirk is a swashbuckling adventurer clearly patterned after Indiana Jones. She has swords rather than a bullwhip, but otherwise she has chases and fights and follows clues in search of fabulous historical artifacts and locations. She even has a jealous French adversary. And her ...

    Delilah Dirk is back for another adventure. She and Selim meet the Dutchman while in Turkey. He convinces Delilah to let him come along on their adventures as they search for the mythical Third Pillar of Hercules. The Dutchman, Laurens von Hassel, is also a journalist and records Delil...

    Another fantastic adventure with Delilah Dirk. I seriously love this series. The artwork is wonderful (both lines and coloring) and there are so many great subtle things like the looks Delilah and Selim give one another. A major point that I love in this series is that Delilah isn?t ...

    Amazing. My favorite thus far of the Delilah Dirk books. Its like an Indiana Jones adventure, except Jones is a kick-ass lady, the romantic entanglement is replaced with a sassy assistant bad-ass in training, & the story actually has something interesting to say about historical re...

    I want to be Delilah Dirk when I grow up. And Mr. Selim, too. I love these books more than I can say: the stories are rousing and fun; the art is beautiful; the writing is clear; the characters ... I'm in love with the both of them. ...

    Recent Reads: Delilah Dirk and the Pillars of Hercules. Tony Cliff's graphic novel heroine has archaeological adventures in the Mediterranean. Ahistorical BD-style fun, with a tip of the hat to a future tomb raider. YA recommended. ...

    Exquisite as usual. One petty qualm: the UK has the Foreign Office, the US has the State Department. (Also, if the Peninsular War was still in progress I doubt that the opposing factions would jointly investigate an archaeological site. And were the Netherlands and Belgium (Austrian(?)...

    Delilah is fantastic. At one point she is in jail, again, chipping away at the wall with a rock. The jailer looks down at her and asks what she's doing, she promptly states "Escaping" which she does. Awesomely! I also love the way Mr. Selim and Delilah work together. It appears tha...

    This is one of those books that sort of fell into my lap. Way back when I was first dipping my toes into book reviewing through Goodreads.com, I was lucky enough to win the first book (Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant). Honestly I had no idea what I was getting myself into. What...

    The Delilah Dirk series is in a league of its own. It is hands down my favorite graphic novel series (and I've read hundreds), and I get so excited when I hear a new one is out. I am extremely happy to share that this third installment will not disappoint! On reading this novel, I c...

    Tony Cliff's Delilah Dirk stories are always a delight to read. His art so cleverly combines the written story with visual story-telling, and there are numerous pages in this tale that I kept coming back to. Delilah is, of course, an amazing character. She's flawed without being proble...

    3.5 stars Honestly, I just didn't find this volume as compelling as the first two. I could see the twist coming almost from the beginning, and I don't feel that the characters of Delilah or Selim grew in any noticeable manner. Having said that, it's still a fun romp with great art. ...

    It had everything you want in globe trotting exotica adventure! Danger, the historical equal of tabloid news, ancient discoveries and secrets and plus some sinister plots are afoot with some old rivals tossed in the mix! Doesn't hurt also the art style is very rich and lavish in detail...

    I need more of Delilah Dirk. This is one of my favorite graphic novel series to read! I really hope there will be more adventures with Delilah. Until then, I'll keep fantasizing about an live action or animated series funded by Netflix. ...

    Brought this to work at the archaeology museum where no less than three near eastern archaeologists peered at the cover in interest, haha. I read it all today, and enjoyed it quite a bit. The note from the author states this volume is a bit more fantastical than the others, but honestl...

    Delilah Dirk and the Pillars of Hercules is a delightful graphic novel that echoes the successful Indiana Jones movies. Delilah resembles Tarzan in her wild nature and athletic skill, but she is also quite beautiful. This graphic novel covers her adventures as she and her friend Selim ...

    Tony Cliff's "Delilah Dirk" series are exactly the kind of comic books whose absence made me think I didn't like comics. Cinematic, intelligent, gripping, full of personality and humour, intelligible to the layperson, but gifted with very clever artistic tricks for the appreciation of ...
