Tony Cliff's Eisner-nominated comic Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant tells the story of Selim, a member of Constantinople's Janissary Corps who joins up with adventurer Delilah Dirk after she saves his life. There are airships, pirates, death-defying escapes. We've got a ton of sample pages, right here.
Delilah Dirk is a globetrotting adventuress with Indiana Jones' upbringing, Batman's martial training, and a flying sailboat. And she's on a mission to steal a pirate's gold, much to the horror of her new companion, a sharp-tongued Turkish lieutenant.
