    Agatha Heterodyne and the Golden Trilobite sees Agatha and the gang having to do compete with her mother for body which leads to numerous situations both dramatic and compromising! The humour comes thick and fast as Agatha runs across numerous people such as Baron Wulfenbach, Prince Tarvek etc which leads to rib breaking situations from the start that are both epic edge of the seat but tinged with knowing winks from the start as the few characters not in on the secrets have the penny drop!

Agatha Heterodyne and the Golden Trilobite art from the start is brilliant and vivid! All the characters comes across as three-dimensional and not copies of each other! The character expressions are brilliantly done and really tie into the script brilliantly! The panels have a cinematic quality as do their angle putting everything on an epic stage but at the same time really keeping the character interactions and reactions going brilliantly really marrying into the script in a great way the tells the story brilliantly from the start! Everything is bright,vivid and the script never lets up from the beginning! This results results in a epic unrelenting tale that you will be up late to see how it goes! World building is right there from the start as we zip around the world! Agatha Heterodyne and the Golden Trilobite is a epic book from the start! You will be kept on your toes from the start guessing how things are going to work out as the plot is relentlesss and resmbles a rollercoaster ride from the start ! At the same time Agatha Heterodyne and the Golden Trilobite has a great feel good vibe that ties brilliantly into the other tones of questing and outsmarting people that is present from the start! Agatha Heterodyne and the Golden Trilobite is full of heroics, cunning, epic world building, rib breaking humour, cunning, daring do, airships, adaventure and action! Crisp high five! Brilliant and highly recommended! Get it when you can! :D

    Agatha Heterodyne has her work caught out for her. She faces her greatest foe from within, wrestling for control with the Other within her own body. All the while, she tries to decide if Prince Tarvek is friend or foe. Baron Wulfenbach is increasingly convinced that she’s a foe and musters his forces against her. Agatha’s allies have their hands full trying to rescue her, if sneaking through monster invested sewers wasn’t enough.

She faces her greatest foe from within, wrestling for control with the Other within her own body. All the while, she tries to decide if Prince Tarvek is friend or foe. Baron Wulfenbach is increasingly convinced that she’s a foe and musters his forces against her. Agatha’s allies have their hands full trying to rescue her, if sneaking through monster invested sewers wasn’t enough. The tension escalates in this volume with the reader’s first glance at the main villain, who makes Baron Wulfenbach seem like a misunderstood hero in comparison. Tarvek reveals just how crafty and complex he can be, while the Baron becomes a lot more sympathetic, even as he turns into a more determined foe. Agatha’s family history (or herstory) comes to light, although it’s a sinister light. Agatha, however, rises to meet every challenge, facing her foes within and without. This volume managed to get a little darker without changing the mood of the overall story. ‘Girl Genius’ continues to be fast paced and humourous, even though we experienced a character death. For overall story and development, this book gets four stars.

If this is all early(ish), where's the major climax supposed to land, and what on earth could it possibly be? Who knows. I'm determined to find out, even while I'm frustrated.

    I actually started out reading the novelization of this--you know, the version without pictures. When I went back to look at the comics, I hated the art. I thought it was cartoony and silly and busy and hard to understand what's going on. But I'd enjoyed the novelization, so I skimmed the first and second volume of the comics, then skipped to volume four.

I think the art did get a little better as the volumes progressed, but mostly I think I just got used to it. I can't say I like how much Agatha ran around in her underwear in the first volumes, or that all the women have perfectly globular gravity-defying breasts, but after a while we get a lot of shirtless princes which sort of evens the playing field.

    I decided to go back and read this series straight through. This volume is an odd one, because of the various versions of "The Other" who pop up during the story. That in itself bothered me, because it seems like The Other made either too many back-up plans or not enough. It's certainly possible that she was somehow still evil, even while hanging out with the earlier generation of Heterodynes, but something about the plot of this volume just seems a bit rough to me.

    DNF’d. She never actually does anything. Things happen around her and she narrowly escapes. Meanwhile, we hear vague snippets of history that treat things that are well-known to the characters with the same sense of mystery as the things that they don’t know. This is where the adventure and I part ways.

    So far my least favorite of the series. Not sure why, maybe I felt there was just so much shoved into one volume that I was getting a little lost? Just an odd idea but hopefully it leads to interesting stuff happening. Also, Agatha and Lars forever <3

    This volume gets a little more convoluted than the previous ones, and it's not quite as much fun, but there's still a great story here with good characters.

    Beautiful art, a compelling ongoing saga, quirky background characters, & the King of Cats. What's more to love? I've been following this tale through the online conic for years, but reading it in this format brought clarity to the story that I'd missed in the 3-pages-a-week format.

I really enjoy the complex story and the crazy cast of characters. Just FYI this review may contain spoilers if you haven’t read the previous books in the series. Agatha has been possessed by the evil Lucrezia who is responsible for the Long War. Agatha is trying to fight the possession, but it is a losing battle. Meanwhile the Wulfenbachs have found out that Agatha is still alive and come to apprehend her. It’s a crazy mix-up because we don’t know who is loyal to Agatha and who is loyal to Lucrezia. People are also confused about the fact that Agatha is not actually Agatha. While all of this craziness ensues, Agatha’s friends from the Circus are trying to break into the castle to rescue her. These are getting harder and harder to review. There is a huge cast of characters and the story has gotten increasingly complicated. The book switches between 3-4 different groups of characters and storylines. Still, it was never hard to follow and the story is incredibly interesting. I continue to enjoy the large cast of very quirky characters. Agatha still features in the story a lot. We learn a lot in this volume about how Agatha can use her voice to control things. We also get to see her do a lot of inventing and finally found out what all those Klanks she made are going to be used for. Krosp, the Emperor of Cats, continues to be the character that cracks me up the most. That being said all of the characters are highly entertaining. The drawings are well done, they very brightly colored and they do an excellent job of showing action and character emotion. I was never confused by what was going on, the illustration really does add a lot of the story. There a funny short at the end of the book where Agatha has to solve a mystery involving her socks. The whole thing is very tongue in cheek and funny. Overall another wonderful installment in the Girl Genius series. The plot is masterfully done and I continue to enjoy all of the action, adventure, intrigue, steampunk elements and quirky characters. Highly recommended, especially if you are a fan of steampunk/humor graphic novels.

    Volume 6: In which Agatha is not Agatha and the bad guys are not bad guys. This volume really caught my attention. After being disappointed with the confusion of Volume 5, we got back on track here. A lot of crazy things which happened at the end of volume 5 were… well, cleared up is not the correct phrase. But suddenly volume 5 makes much more sense. Despite a lot of separate character groups weaving this story together, I found they dovetailed together nicely.

But suddenly volume 5 makes much more sense. Despite a lot of separate character groups weaving this story together, I found they dovetailed together nicely. The narrative was never particularly overwhelming and I could follow all these characters easily. The plots, counterplots, and politics are making everything intriguing. I like seeing the twists and turns appear as new characters develop in our eye. That said, the cast of characters keeps growing, which is making this challenging to review. I imagine I will probably re-read the whole comic when I have finished the series to try and better understand the character motivations. That's the biggest downside for me with this cast of characters. I feel like when a character is not on the page they are stagnant. They don't grow or develop during the time we don't see them. Also, the passage of time is unclear, making it even harder to identify what is happening when. I love how quirky they all are, and I love how they interact. I just wish they had real independent lives away from Agatha-- and they all started that way, but other than the Baron, everyone seems caught in the swirl of her awesome. It's a bit tedious. When I was asked to explain this series to a friend recently, I said: "A mad-science, steampunk opera." And I think that's pretty close. It's really good, but everything happens a the drop of a dime. This speed is something I'm used to only in live theatre/opera. I wonder if that is where my hesitations come from? Almost done! Only a few more to go.

    For many years I have followed Girl Genius Webcomic as one of my daily rituals. I have been following the Foglio's quirky humour and idiosyncratic drawings. What I really like of the series is the depth of scope and worldbuilding, with many details becoming obvious much later than when they appear. As such the recently appeared novels are the perfect complement, as you can finally be inside the head of Agatha, overcoming one of the limitations of comic: wordcount.

As such the recently appeared novels are the perfect complement, as you can finally be inside the head of Agatha, overcoming one of the limitations of comic: wordcount. So instead of being sparse with words, they can let out freely. The series takes place in an alternate Europa, one where some kind of magical technology, the Spark, has made it diverge wildly from our own. The series follows the adventures, with some sadness and romance but mostly with good humour, of Agatha, the Girl Genius, and a huge supporting cast. I would call it Steam Fantasy instead of Steampunk, but it is better than most stories with than label. I supported the kickstarter campaign, so I got the first 12 books. I suspect they are only scratching the surface so far... I will recycle the review for the others, because they are really part of a continuum, and all are at a high level.

    An installment in the continuing story. With spoilers ahead for the earlier ones. Though this one ends on a much sharper transition than the last one, or indeed any of the earlier ones except volume 3. It opens not with Agatha but with the Baron. He had discovered the new revenants, which do not look like shambling monsters, but act like normal -- until the Other needs them.

Agatha herself is able to break through now and again, and try her plan. And a rescue party is going into the sewers after Agatha. And Anveka is carrying out her plans. This all collides, in spades. One thinks rather better of the Baron at the end of it all, seeing what he has to deal with; his behavior makes rather more sense. And alas -- it is a painful work, because on several occasions you see reasonable people making deductions that you know are wrong, but which are indeed reasonable and demand action at once. At the end of it, Agatha has a new determination, and strong reasons for it.

    Volume 6 of the printed chronicles of Agatha Heterodyne, Girl Genius, picks up from where volume 5 left off, with the revelation that Agatha's mind has been taken over by that of her mother, Lucretia, who is revealed to be The Other - the cause of the greatest war of recent memory. This volume deals with the attempts of Agatha to break free of her mother, the machinations of Prince Tarvek and his sister to overthrow Baron Wulfenbach and the attempts of Agatha's friends to rescue her.

Despite an awful lot going on at any given time, the narrative never feels overwhelming, and all the threads dovetail nicely. As I've said before, I find these graphic novels much easier to read and absorb than the page-at-a-time webcomic (not that it stops me reading that as well) particularly when there are multiple threads going on and with an ever-growing cast of characters. The story remains enthralling, the art is beautiful and fits the steampunk nature of the story perfectly. I look forward to future instalments of Agatha's story.

    Matters have taken a turn for the dire. It seems that Agatha has inherited more from the Heterodynes than her genius, voice and unique scent.

Some are perhaps a tad more relate-able than others. A little side note for the future, I've gotten very attached to the Jager trio (Oggie, Maxim and especially Dimo) and I really hope they continue to be witty comic relief as the story will most likely keep getting heavier.

    I truly have no idea whose side Tarvek is on any more. A double cross here! A twist there! A betrayal over here! The only thing I'm clear on is he likes Agatha because her inventions bring all the boys to the yard. Good timing on wrapping up the Lucrezia storyline because I was just starting to get tired of it. In general this volume is pretty well-paced, I'm a bit confused about Tarvek's constant flip flopping but at least it kept things interesting.

    A LOT happens in this volume! Alliances shift in every direction, and there are several extremely pivotal events that have long-lasting repercussions. I don't feel like Tarvek's actions and motivations were sufficiently explained. Some of his double crosses just don't make sense. Girl Genius is ongoing and can be read online here.

    While the art is stunningly beautiful as always, Book 6 of Girl Genius is clearly the weakest in terms of storyline. Even after several readings I haven't figured out just what the hell went down in Sturmhalten. Tarvek Sturmvoraus changes sides so many times that nobody can possibly trust him anymore. And those gargantuan fluorescent monsters in the sewers? A little too unbelievable. Nonetheless, you'll have to admit that Agatha sure knows how to arm a circus.

    Originally published online as a Web comic (where it can be found at www.girlgeniusonline.com), this series follows the exploits of a young woman, Agatha, who discovers she is the lost heir to a long-feared dynasty. Instead of a terribly serious version of this tale, the author/artist stick to humor over horrors. Still friends and enemies die, leaving their mark on Agatha as she grows to understand who she is and what she can do.

    Wow! Exciting conclusion to the current storyline! I've said it before, and I'll almost certainly say it again, but this is some of Phil's best work. And I say that having been a fan since "What's New?" started running in The Dragon waaay back in the '80s. The art and writing are top notch. I especially love how things that seem like throwaway jokes turn out to be significant later on. Love, love, love everything about this book! Wow! Exciting conclusion to the current storyline!

    Simply amazing. Go read it. Update, 4/6/21: These books are so easy to binge-read. I've made it through three of them today, and am lamenting that I didn't put more of them on hold at the library earlier, which means I'm going to have to wait. Poor Agatha keeps getting deeper and deeper into trouble. Simply amazing. Go read it. Update, 4/6/21: These books are so easy to binge-read.

    Loved it again! I think I might even like Tarvek, though he might be evil, he just seems deeper than Gil has been in the past though that is changing now. I am furious with Lucrezia.... how can she be so evil??? Oh well, maybe there is a cure... one can only hope... and maybe I do want Agatha with Gil... hmmm this is becoming more soap opera-y than I expected it to.
