Our heroine's heritage has come back to haunt her, and the amount of trouble that ensues involves armies. Some of which arrive on dirigibles and some of which ride giant spiders. Even the most extreme magical mad-science talents in this world aren't enough to trump that amount of forces, and characters still need to get by on their wits.

Love Girl Genius - I've been reading them online for quite a while, finally got the books (some of them - there's a couple volumes out that I don't have yet). The story flows nicely between volumes, but I think I can distinguish between them (as I can't for some, like Modesty Blaise). Again, rich. The rescue, and Agatha changing - and finding out, again, more about herself. Her locket finally shows up again, too, just in time. And some great scenes in the middle - the oubliette, and a lot of the Jagerkin's dialog and the responses thereto ('I can honestly say I've never heard that before!'). Tarvek switching in all directions. And did the device malfunction or did he change it or did she - no, that would make no sense...unless the Other did it...puzzle. Lovely. Now I want the rest - need to go read it online until I can afford to buy the rest of the books. girlgenius.com - go see!

This is the 6th book in the Girl Genius series. Agatha has been possessed by her mother, both are fighting to take control of her body. Agatha's friends from the circus are trying to save her. The Baron discovers where she is and deploys the whole fleet to capture her. An incredibly fun story with action, laughs and a bit of seriousness thrown in. This is also one of the longer books in the series.Girl Genius is a web comic about a mad scientists who seem to be able to break the laws of physics, and it all happens in a gaslight/steampunkish universe. Great art, great story and lots of fun.

On the last page of the third volume of the Girl Genius series, Agatha Heterodyne's furry companion Krosp tells her "Like it or not, you're going to cause trouble just by existing." His words fall short. This trouble is over the wall, out of the county, and on its way into orbit. The ruling power of Europe has identified Agatha as a grave menace, and knows where to find her. He's on his way with an army led by a cheery homicidal maniac. The people who forced Agatha to reveal her secrets are still holding her; worse she is subject to possession by the mysterious power who recently laid waste to Europe. That power's formidable warrior priestesses are also determined to have their say. Agatha's friends are on the move as well. While Baron Klaus Wolfenbach moves in with his airships Lars, Zeetha and the Jaegermonster trio brave the sewers of Sturmhalten, joined by a pair of plumbers and a veiled mercenary. Their trip leads them through monsters, nightmares, deathtraps, and a menace that even frightens the unflappable Jaegers. Face to face with Klaus Wolfenbach, Agatha draws the ace up her sleeve. Master Payne gets to show us what a certified Evil Magician can do and Countess Marie gets her chance to shine. But even salvation is not without tragedy. As usual, the Foglio humor shines through, and most of it is character-driven. The Foglio artwork is a delight, especially the facial expressions. Cheyenne Wright's color work is integral and indispensible. The usual caution applies: the Girl Genius story should be considered somewhere between PG and PG-13.
