Maybe it’s the geek in me but I’ve been totally into the Girl Genius series, by authors/artists Kaja and Phil Foglio, ever since a colleague at work introduced me to it. Right now I’m waiting on pins and needles for the next issue to come out. In case you’re not familiar with Girl Genius, but also want to satisfy your inner geek, you have three ways to enjoy this gaslamp fantasy series. By the way, Gaslamp fantasy is not to be confused with steampunk although it does have some of the same elements minus the punk and a few additions to the steam part.
Follow the adventures of Agatha Heterodyne, girl genius, as she evades the clutches of Baron Wulfenbach and hunts for the truth to her past in this “gaslamp fantasy with adventure, romance and mad science”. Check out the graphic novels, the book or go online to read the webcomic. You’ll love the art, the humor and the imagination behind this series by Kaja and Phil Foglio. The book, Agatha H and the Airship City provides a lot of backstory to the characters so for those of you who aren’t really into graphic novels or who want clarification on the characters and the storyline you’ll want to read the book as well. You may even find yourself reading all three formats just so you don’t miss a moment of the adventure!
