First Second announces second Delilah Dirk book

Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant, a stylish romp by Tony Cliff was just released this week. The graphic novel, published by First Second, follows Delilah Dirk a 19th century swordmaster with a larcenous streak on her delicious adventures—it was first an Eisner-nominated webcomic then a printed book. A little Flashman, a little Adele Blanc Sec, a little Indiana Jones. You can view the website here, and buy the book here orhere.

The story has been well-received in all formats, and First Second tells us they’ll be publishing the sequel, which has the working title Delilah Dirk and the Blades of England. Here’s the logline:

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?


 Cliff has released a rough sketch for the sequel, which you can see above. Once again, more is on Cliff’s website, where he’s also been posting some “travel posters.”
