Girl Genius, the multiple Hugo Award–winning steampunk webcomic by Phil and Kaja Foglio, now collected in hardcover!
 
The Industrial Revolution has become all-out war! Mad Scientists, gifted with the Spark of genius, unleash insane inventions on an unprepared Europe. For centuries, the Heterodyne family of inventors kept the peace, but the last Heterodyne disappeared twenty years ago, leaving their ally Baron Klaus Wulfenbach to maintain order with his fleet of airships and army of unstoppable, if not very bright, Jaeger Monsters.
 
At Transylvania Polygnostic University, Agatha Clay dreams of being a scientist herself, but her trouble concentrating dooms her to be a lowly minion at best. When her locket, a family heirloom, is stolen, Agatha shows signs of having the Spark in a spectacular, destructive fashion and captures the attention of the Baron—and the Baron’s handsome young son, Gilgamesh.
 
Swept up to the Baron's Airship City, Agatha finds herself in the midst of the greatest minds of her generation, as well as palace intrigue, dashing heroes, and an imperial cat. Agatha may be the most brilliant mind of her generation and the key to control of the continent, but first, she just has to survive.

Praise for Girl Genius Omnibus Volume One

Winner of the 2009 and 2010 Hugo Awards for Best Graphic Story
 
"A sly and witty graphic novel."
—School Library Journal, Best Adult Books for High School Students 2003
 
"If Jules Verne has written comics, he wouldn't have written Girl Genius. He would have been jealous of it, though."
Comics Buyer's Guide
 
"The Foglios appear to have been liberated by the [webcomics] format—and that sense of buoyant imagination and unbridled fun runs through every page."
The Onion A.V. Club
 
"A manic, hilarious, adventure-filled gem of a comic. The series is made of win and I have only one regret: that I didn't know about it sooner. Do yourself a favor and go read it, NOW."
The Book Smugglers
 
"Girl Genius is unique. Buy it."
Comics Buyer's Guide
 
"Bursting at the seam with creativity, humor, and outright weirdness . . . an infectious and incredibly fun read."
—Sarah Kuhn, IGN
 
"Girl Genius is brilliant. It really is. It's fun and funky and unlike almost anything else, and it's Phil and Kaja Foglio doing what they do best."
—Eric Burns, Websnark.com
 
"It's appealingly drawn and cleverly written and cheerfully pulpy in all the right ways."
—Shaenon Garrity, The Webcomics Examiner
 
"Professionally executed artwork and a spanking story that makes it a timeless work of literature."
