Overview

Mad scientists, supernatural dangers, and a series of all-too-human challenges will confront two unlikely heroes in The Clockwork Girl, an unforgettable journey into the farthest reaches of the imagination. Tesla, a mechanical girl brought to life by her Victor Frankenstein-like creator, faces a wall of fear, intolerance, and superstition in her steam-shrouded castle—but when she discovers a friend in Huxley, a mutant boy from the circus sideshow, then the pair of outcasts will finally learn what it is to be human. The award-winning Clockwork Girl comic books, now in an enthralling graphic novel compendium perfect for fans of Scott Pilgrim, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Marvel Comics’ The Wizard of Oz, is a one-of-a-kind paranormal tale of steampunk science, breathless suspense, and riveting adventure.

Editorial Reviews

The story is archetypal, but as rendered here, the transformation of the robot Clockwork Girl into a living, breathing creature has a poignancy and gentle charm all its own. This graphic novel is the basis of an animated 3D animated film, due to be released on October.

Bought this for my seven year old niece who loves it. Her (much) older Aunt was pretty impressed too. Very nice story and very well done.
