book review: agatha awakens (girl genius omnibus vol. 1)

Girl Genius is a comic that wins loads of awards, and that I’d never read. Now that I’ve read the beginning of the story in Agatha Awakens I can’t say I’d vote for it. Agatha is an assistant in a lab and through some mistaken identity she’s shanghaied into service because she’s got The Spark (which is what powers all the steampunky robot inventions).

The art probably gets more polished in later volumes as the story goes along, but I just didn’t like the style the Foglios use. The jokes weren’t that funny and I just didn’t like the characters. For a similar tale I liked much better, see Fullmetal Alchemist.
