Girl Genius 5: Agatha Heterodyne and the Clockwork Princess

Agatha Heterodyne and the Clockwork Princess is the fifth volume in the Girl Genius series. Agatha is still traveling with the Circus of Adventure, Gil still thinks Agatha is dead, and Agatha still wants to meet up with her friends and newly discovered family.

Unsurprisingly, she doesn’t make it to Mechanicsburg.

Although I didn’t think it was possible, I enjoyed The Clockwork Princess even more than The Circus of Dreams. Both Michael and I laughed aloud at times. (I particularly loved, “I HITT MR LARZ (SYNED) A BRIK”). It was also a pager turner. Just as you think that Agatha couldn’t get herself into any more trouble–things get worse.

I was almost afraid to start reading volume 6, then I remembered that it’s on-line, so even if volume 6 ends in a cliff hanger, I can read the start of volume 7 on-line.

But I have to admit that I prefer reading them in paper form.

If you haven’t read any of the Girl Genius series, head on over to the website and read through an issue or two. Then you can run out and buy the whole available series, just like I did.
