Delilah Dirk and the Pillars of Hercules Reviews

    Aug 23, 2018
    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...

    4.5 stars A thrilling and thoroughly fun quest with Delilah and Selim. Stunning visual artwork and genuine dialogue (with wit and heart throughout) make this a book to be enjoyed over and over again. I cannot wait to see where their adventures take them next! ...

    A nice addition to the series. I don't think Pillars of Hercules was quite as action packed as the previous volumes, but it is still quite good. Something that we haven't seen before is someone playing on Delilah's ego. That part of the story worked because of the character that was do...

    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...

    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...

    In the third volume of the series, Delilah Dirk is in Turkey clashing with a rather underhanded Turkish prince when she runs into journalist Laurens Van Hasselman. Van Hasselman offers Delilah and her companion Selim some information that leads them on a chase to find the Third Pillar ...

    This is the third book in the Delilah Dirk series. I have been thoroughly enjoying this series and this book was another great one. This time Delilah and Selim end up on a series of adventures seeking out legendary third Pillar of Hercules. Some of Delilah?s past acquaintances co...

    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 ...

    I can start by saying I love everything to do with Delilah Dirk. She's the swashbuckling adventurer I wish I could have read growing up. (Reading about her adventures now is great too.) She gets out of trouble as often as she gets in it, which is also often (such is the life of an adve...

    Good lord, I didn't think the Delilah Dirk series could get any better, but Delilah Dirk and the Pillars of Hercules is the best of the bunch by far! So we had the plot-lite, action-heavy first volume. Then we had the plot-heavy, action-light second volume. Now we get straight up Tinti...

    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 ...

    Slightly surprised that Delilah Dirk would fall for a journalist?s florid praise, but this was still an entertaining volume. The ending seemed a bit rushed but the artwork and coloring was as gorgeous as usual. Not enough tea, though! ...

    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...

    I am back to waffling on this series. After not liking the 2nd one, then going back and reading the first and liking it, I figured I would be much more into reading the 3rd one than I was. My review doesn't change much from the first one and while I do generally like these characters, ...

    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...

    Lovely!! So lovely, and so good, and so beautiful! I am especially enamored with how Delilah is not a perfect protagonist - she is beautiful and clever and agile and all that, but she's also petty and spiteful and vengeful. It's realistic, and it's enjoyable to watch her be adventurous...

    The Delilah Dirk series is always guaranteed to provide some swashbuckling, Indiana Jones type adventure with a delightfully tough female protagonist. While I did enjoy this, it's not quite as good as previous Delilah Dirk outings. Some of the humor is missing, replaced by the oily jou...

    A cave of riches along a collapsed riverbank in southern Asia Minor. A naked necropolis bearing ominous tidings, hidden among the north African dunes. The mysteries held by an abandoned cityscape whose future rests either in the hands of archaeologists or of first-born capitalists. The...

    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...

    That?s more like it. After an underwhelming second volume, Tony Cliff ramps up the excitement for a rip-roaring, Indiana Jones-style adventure. Delilah and Selim traverse the Mediterranean in search of a mythic city with the help of a sly journalist. On their tail is Delilah?s neme...

    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 ...
