Phil Foglio (previously) writes, "Studio Foglio is kickstarting a new Girl Genius Collection! The Incorruptible Library covers the adventures of Agatha Heterodyne and her friends as they journey beneath the streets of Paris. There they encounter hidden subterranean civilizations, forgotten labyrinths filled with secrets, and a healthy dollop of Adventure, Romance, and Mad Science!"
Kickstarter has proven to be an excellent method for us to get the Girl Genius series out to those sophisticated, discerning webcomic cognoscenti who own computers and don't mind giving strangers money electronically. If you are reading this, then you are already halfway towards joining their proud, well-read ranks. You can fulfill your destiny by searching for 'Girl Genius' on Kickstarter, or you can simply follow this elegant and well-crafted link.
Phil and Kaja Foglio have been producing Girl Genius since the year 2000, making it 'One of the worst Get-Rich-Quick schemes ever.' In that time, Girl Genius has won three Hugo Awards, and was recently selected as one of the webcomics to be archived in perpetuity at the Library of Congress. This significantly ups the chances of Girl Genius becoming the holy book of some future, post-apocalyptic religion, and thus, by supporting it, your chances of becoming some sort of patron saint -- and let's be honest, that would be pretty cool.

It’s embarrassing; it’s touching; […]

You may not realize it, but some of the biggest films in movie history have been edited using the same tools some of you use to cut your video of vacationing at Disney World.

Now that the initial furor and shortages have subsided, it’s probably not a bad time to start considering your long-term cleaning and disinfecting plans. Sure, that might seem anywhere from overly cautious to outright ridiculous, but the threat of COVID-19 appears poised to be present for a while and the need for quick travel clean-up […]
