80.Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant by Tony Cliff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
So great! It's 1807 and Delilah Dirk is a globe-trotting, confident, swashbuckler. What's not to love?
The story is actually told from the point of view of the Turkish lieutenant, a kind but somewhat hapless tea aficionado.
There's travel, adventures, and beautiful art.
One of the things I love about this book is that it's not mired in the competing back stories and stylistic conventions of the superhero graphic novels I read. This is its own unique story.
And it's a lot of fun. Made me laugh out loud more than once.
