Agatha Heterodyne and the Clockwork Princess" starts showing the result of that; it's mostly positive, but has some minor downsides. For something with the sweeping scope of "Girl Genius", being free to delay payoff for greater development is excellent; the cast is perpetually growing and it helps to not be limited by the format.

Agatha Heterodyne is the last heir to the Maddest of Mad Scientist families, and on the run from the current ruler of Europe. In a fairy-tale castle on a mountain pass, she finds herself at the center of an evil plan to bring back one of the deadliest enemies of recent history. Format Paperback 112 pages.

Agatha Heterodyne and the Clockwork Princess : A Gaslamp Fantasy with Adventure, Romance and Mad Science. Book in the Girl Genius Series). by Phil Foglio and Kaja Foglio. Still with the circus Agatha is enmeshed in a plot that ties into her own mysterious past and ends on a cliff hanger. Many of my earlier complaints are resolved in this volume. The coloring is better and the story is more coherent.

The latest chapter in this thrilling gaslamp fantasy series by Phil & Kaja Foglio reveals a number of secrets. Agatha Heterodyne and the Clockwork Princess opens with a narrow escape, as the traveling players (introduced in The Circus of Dreams) are set upon by a huge group of killing creatures. The Jagers as a tribe are bred for fighting, and I find their simplistic, amoral love of killing hilarious, especially when expressed through their faux-Eastern European accents.

Girl Genius is brilliant.

But when the University was overthrown, Agatha was revealed to be the last of the Hetrodyne family- and a Girl Genius beyond anyone's imaginings. Now she has escaped from the people who want to control her; and must make hery across treacherous wastelands to find her place in a world of monsters and madmen. Girl Genius is brilliant. It really is. It's fun and funky and unlike almost anything else, and it's Phil and Kaja Foglio doing what they do best

Many of my earlier complaints are resolved in this volume. The coloring is better and the story is more coherent.

Although Agatha remains flawless, and becomes even more special as we learn about her mother, it works. The name of the book is Girl Genius after all so we can expect a certain amount of over-the-top perfection from our heroine.

This series remains a solid, all-ages, adventure that I recommend for anyone.

goon continuing story.

'Genius' describes this comic. It is some of the best writing I have seen in comic books in a while. The humor is fast, smart, and compelling. There is not a single cut-out or flat character to be seen. There is mystery, drama, science, action, explosions and more. A MUST read!

Read them. Read them all.

I love the art. My 50 year old husband, and 10 and 21 year old sons walk around the house quoting it constantly.

These books just keep getting better and better. If anything, this book is more interesting, with more action, than the previous four. Can't wait for the sixth book.
This is the 5th TP in the Girl Genius series. I have really been loving this series a lot. It’s a lot of fun to read, there is a lot of humor, and I really enjoy the heavy steampunk theme throughout.

Agatha and Krosp (the emperor of cats) are still traveling with Master Payne’s Circus of Adventure. Now the Jaggers have joined the circus too and they are awesome, always itching for a brawl. However, during a performance Agatha’s voice is recognized and she is kidnapped for evil purposes. Who will come to her rescue?

This whole series has been spectacular fun. Lots of comedy, wonderful steampunk elements, and tons of adventure. This book throws in some creepy automatons (particularly the Clockwork Princess) which were fascinating. There is also a horde of creepy monsters that have been devouring villages. In addition to this poor Prince Gil has thrown himself into his inventing after believing Agatha is truly dead.

I continue to really enjoy Agatha, she comes up with some awesome inventions and is just pretty darn funny. Krosp played a smaller role in this book, but was also hilarious. We do learn a little bit more about her background and the mythology surrounding the Heterodynes.

Then there are the automatons and the whole idea of souls or spirits inhabiting machines, which is something I love reading about.

Things move fairly slow in these books, but the events that do happen are highly entertaining. The illustrations continue to be brightly colored and all the women continue to look a bit manly. But I still feel like the illustration fits the story really well.

The book does start with a “the story thus far” which I really am happy is there. The story is getting more and more complicated and it is good to have a little refresher as to what is going on.

The only thing that was a bit disappointing is that this book ends on a horrible cliffhanger. I am dying to know what happens next!

Overall, this book was just as much fun as all the previous books have been. The story is getting more complicated and I continue to enjoy it. There are some wonderful steampunk things in here and the book is hilarious. My husband always rolls his eyes while I read these because I just sit on the couch and laugh and laugh until I am nearly in tears. I highly recommend this graphic novel series to everyone, especially those who love steampunk.
