Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant

Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant is a delightful read.  Delilah Dirk is a globe-trotting, sword-swinging adventure woman.  The Turkish Lieutenant of the title is Selim, a tea-loving man who gets caught up in her wake and becomes her traveling companion.  After adventuring and fleeing from an angry pirate, they come across a little village and Selim decides to stay because an adventuring life isn't for him.  But in the end he finds that maybe a quiet little life isn't what he actually wants.

I loved how Dirk is ridiculously confident while Selim is her exact opposite, which makes for a very fun romp.  I quite enjoyed Tony Cliff's first graphic novel and am looking forward to the second. :)
