I decided to add a review section to my Blog/Website, so here’s my first review. The Amazon ads are mostly just because that turns out to be the easiest way to pull up a cover picture.
Girl Genius is my favorite webcomic.
The setting is steampunk/mad science. The plot is intricate and adventurous with a lot of backstory that gets slowly revealed as the action progresses. It’s got great worldbuilding, wonderful characters, is romantic, and it’s funny! (Pretty much a perfect example of how to push all of Shelby’s buttons.)
They are up to Volume 8, page 75, as of this posting, so there’s a lot of archive to go through.
Yes, you do want to start at the beginning and read the whole thing.
ART: Folgio has been a professional artist since forever, but apparently some people find his style a bit hard to get used to. The first volume is black and white, but everything after that is full color.
