Cliff has done a lot of research into the background of this story set in Ottoman Turkey and Greece. Clothing, nature, city scapes are all dawn in a very loving and respectful manner. The protagonists are what really makes this comic work. Selim a Jannisary that loves his tea more than his career and Delilah a tomboy diplomats daughter stumble from adventure to adventure as two children running through their world. Although the adventures give Cliff the chance to illustrate some truly wonderful action-scenes, I could read a book about these two bickering on whether tea was better than coffee.
Finally, it has to be said that this edition is of a very high quality. Colours are deep and rich, the paper is of a think quality. As TPB's go, this is definitely one of the better ones out there.
Five Stars, buy this comic if you love adventure books and films and interesting characters.
Even the physical book is attractive.
There's even a sample of the story online.
