Delilah Dirk and the Pillars of Hercules Reviews

    Aug 23, 2018

    I enjoy these books. A rakish, unapologetic, impetuous, talented woman goes on adventures drawn amazingly. ...

    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 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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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! ...

    love these ...

    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...

    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...

    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, ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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, ...

    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...

    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...

    Barely escaping a disastrous fate when she's accused of being a spy, Delilah Dirk and her loyal companion, Selim head to Asia, but then end up back in Europe after meeting up with an adventurer and writer, Van Hassel, who pens various accounts of Delilah's adventures for the newspapers...

    A new Delilah Dirk moves immediately to the top of my to-read pile! I love this series and this was a wild new adventure about a stunning archaeological find, a journalist with hidden intentions and an assorted other cast of villains and double-dealers. A tad heavier on the adventure a...

    Delilah is fantastic. At one point she is in jail, again, chipping away at the wall with a rock. The jailer looks down at her and asks what she's doing, she promptly states "Escaping" which she does. Awesomely! I also love the way Mr. Selim and Delilah work together. It appears tha...

    Delilah Dirk is back for another adventure. She and Selim meet the Dutchman while in Turkey. He convinces Delilah to let him come along on their adventures as they search for the mythical Third Pillar of Hercules. The Dutchman, Laurens von Hassel, is also a journalist and records Delil...

    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, ...

    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...

    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...

    Barely escaping a disastrous fate when she's accused of being a spy, Delilah Dirk and her loyal companion, Selim head to Asia, but then end up back in Europe after meeting up with an adventurer and writer, Van Hassel, who pens various accounts of Delilah's adventures for the newspapers...

    A new Delilah Dirk moves immediately to the top of my to-read pile! I love this series and this was a wild new adventure about a stunning archaeological find, a journalist with hidden intentions and an assorted other cast of villains and double-dealers. A tad heavier on the adventure a...

    Delilah is fantastic. At one point she is in jail, again, chipping away at the wall with a rock. The jailer looks down at her and asks what she's doing, she promptly states "Escaping" which she does. Awesomely! I also love the way Mr. Selim and Delilah work together. It appears tha...

    Delilah Dirk is back for another adventure. She and Selim meet the Dutchman while in Turkey. He convinces Delilah to let him come along on their adventures as they search for the mythical Third Pillar of Hercules. The Dutchman, Laurens von Hassel, is also a journalist and records Delil...

    Amazing. My favorite thus far of the Delilah Dirk books. Its like an Indiana Jones adventure, except Jones is a kick-ass lady, the romantic entanglement is replaced with a sassy assistant bad-ass in training, & the story actually has something interesting to say about historical re...

    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! ...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    Pillars of Hercules (Delilah Dirk #3) by Tony Cliff, 247 pages. First Second (Roaring Brook (Holtzbrinck)), 2018 $18 Language: PG (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: PG BUYING ADVISORY: HS -ADVISABLE AUDIENCE APPEAL: HIGH In this third graphic novel, Delilah and Se...

    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...

    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...

    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 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, ...

    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...

    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...

    Barely escaping a disastrous fate when she's accused of being a spy, Delilah Dirk and her loyal companion, Selim head to Asia, but then end up back in Europe after meeting up with an adventurer and writer, Van Hassel, who pens various accounts of Delilah's adventures for the newspapers...

    A new Delilah Dirk moves immediately to the top of my to-read pile! I love this series and this was a wild new adventure about a stunning archaeological find, a journalist with hidden intentions and an assorted other cast of villains and double-dealers. A tad heavier on the adventure a...

    Delilah is fantastic. At one point she is in jail, again, chipping away at the wall with a rock. The jailer looks down at her and asks what she's doing, she promptly states "Escaping" which she does. Awesomely! I also love the way Mr. Selim and Delilah work together. It appears tha...

    Delilah Dirk is back for another adventure. She and Selim meet the Dutchman while in Turkey. He convinces Delilah to let him come along on their adventures as they search for the mythical Third Pillar of Hercules. The Dutchman, Laurens von Hassel, is also a journalist and records Delil...

    Amazing. My favorite thus far of the Delilah Dirk books. Its like an Indiana Jones adventure, except Jones is a kick-ass lady, the romantic entanglement is replaced with a sassy assistant bad-ass in training, & the story actually has something interesting to say about historical re...

    Tony Cliff's Delilah Dirk stories are always a delight to read. His art so cleverly combines the written story with visual story-telling, and there are numerous pages in this tale that I kept coming back to. Delilah is, of course, an amazing character. She's flawed without being proble...

    I enjoy these books. A rakish, unapologetic, impetuous, talented woman goes on adventures drawn amazingly. ...

    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 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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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! ...

    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...

    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...
