Kickstarting a new Girl Genius volume

Carol writes, "Phil and Kaja Foglio have recently launched the Kickstarter for the latest book in the Girl Genius graphic novel series, Girl Genius: The Beast of the Rails. (And they've already reached their basic funding goal!)"

Beast of the Rails is the first book of the Second Journey of Agatha Heterodyne -- and begins a whole new story arc. For those who are new to the series, this is an excellent place to jump in.

In this volume, genius mad scientist Agatha Heterodyne sets off for Paris, in search of the new allies and the knowledge she will need to save her city of Mechanicsburg. You can find out about it - and read the entire series so far - at
