At Comic-Con this year, Phil Foglio was kind enough to give me a copy of the newest Girl Genius book. I've been a fan of the series for a while, flitting in and out as my time and internet connection would allow. But with this book, I'm hooked! The story here, though quite aways in, is engagingly written and easy to drop yourself into. The writing presents with witty humor, science, and gadgetry- which adds to the greater, more epic drama that I can't wait to see unfold.
The real clincher for me, though, is that to feed my now regular GG joneses, www.girlgenius.net updates three times a week (!) with the beautifully illustrated pages.
