Staff Picks (Aug13): Girl Genius Volume 12 — Agatha Heterodyne And The Siege Of Mechanicsburg
Jul 12, 2013
Publisher: Airship Entertainment
With the tag line “Action, adventure, romance, and Mad Science,” Girl Genius has my attention! Series creators and husband and wife duo Phil and Kaja Foglio describe their Hugo Award-winning series by coining the term “gaslamp fantasy” which they consider to be a variation on steampunk but with an alternate history twist with heavy heaping dose of mad science.
Agatha Heterodyne, the last living member of the Heterodyne family, has been on the run. After escaping the flying Castle Wulfenbach and the clutches of Baron Klaus Wulfenbach. The Baron fears that her family heritage consisting of a line of powerful and often insane mad scientists could bring an end to his Empire.
To support the launch of Girl Genius Volume 12, Airship Entertainment is bringing the rest of the series, all 11 volumes, back to press so new readers can start from the beginning and collectors can fill any pesky gaps in their libraries.
Find out if Agatha can defend Mechanicsburg and her family Castle from the Baron’s armies in the latest volume, Girl Genius Volume 12: Agatha Heterodyne and the Siege of Mechanicsburg!
