Girl Genius Volume 1: Agatha Heterodyne and the Bettleburg Clank SC (Color Edition)

By Phil Foglio

Rating: 4 stars

Volume one of the ongoing webcomic Girl Genius, this volume gives us the background to this steampunk world of mad scientists (‘Sparks’) and their minions and introduces us to Agatha Clay, the girl genius of the title as she discovers her own talents.

I’ve been reading Girl Genius for a while now but it’s nice to go back and start again, and read it in a much more compressed format, rather than three pages a week. It makes it much easier to follow the story and remember the characters, not to mention flick back if you forget any of them. I enjoy this sort of mad scientist steampunk and the art is fantastic (and volume one, originally in black and white, has been re-issued in full colour too!). Great fun, if quite short.
