Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant - Tony Cliff

Very cute idea about a super-cool heroine adventurer who meets up with a rather low-key Janissary (yes, that should hint at the time period) and together they get into all kinds of trouble. The art and coloring were quite nice, but I have to wonder if I'm missing something or many somethings. The intro pages about Delilah made her a really awesome female character and I would like to read those stories, but I'm pretty sure they don't exists. Part of the trouble with this book is I feel lost in the pacing. Scenes are drawn out, too quick, or reliant on backstory that we don't have, and the shift in POV throws me (is this Selim, the Turk's, story? I don't know.). Chalk this up to a noble effort that failed due to story structure. Honestly, I keep seeing these stories with all the needed elements that just aren't being put together properly.
