Delilah Dirk and the Blades of England lands Delilah and Selim right in the middle of yet more crazy adventures. When Delilah is framed as a spy by an English army officer, her passion for revenge threatens to sever her friendship with Selim. Is she willing to lose the companionship of her only good friend in order to reclaim her reputation? Selim finally gets to see the England he has only imagined, but how will he feel when the combined strains of social conventions and Delilah’s thirst for revenge overwhelm his experience?

This is my first Delilah Dirk graphic novel. I thought the graphics were well done and very enjoyable to look at. I thought Cliff did an awesome job with the story. I was hooked to it right away and eager to read more. I thought the story was very compelling. I feel like the reader really got to know Delilah Dirk in this story. It gives the reader a peak into her back story and what makes her the person that she is. I think this graphic novel was really good. I look forward to reading more.
