Illustrator Tony Cliff has posted the two first chapters of his new graphic novel, Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant, online. Fans of exotic locations and swashbuckling adventures should check it out!
What’s it about?
In 19th-century Turkey, an officer in the Janissary army must struggle to repay a brash adventuress for saving his life, even though she was the one who endangered it in the first place. The webcomic unfolds with four or six new pages each Saturday. The number of pages varies each week in service to the story, usually determined by which page would make a more cruel, heart-wrenching cliffhanger.
Portions of the story (more or less the entire first chapter) have been previously self-published as Delilah Dirk and the Treasure of Constantinople. However, they were in black and white then. Now they’re in colour! (http://www.delilahdirk.com/about/)
I think we can all agree it looks stunning!
