Girl Genius  
Studio Foglio's Girl Genius is an amazing comic. I don't know how he can keep cranking it out at three large pages a week while simultaneously churning out an equal amount of Buck Godot, though I think the latter may be a reillustration of older black and white work. So then they'd be drawing a frightening and surreal amount of content while only writing a really impressive amount of content. Every week.

They give all of Girl Genius, and quite a bit of Buck Godot, away for free online. The links above will take you to the archives. But since it's fantastic, I figure it's worth giving them money.

And now I feel really bad, because I ordered all the Girl Genius collections they have, and the box disappeared after (the Post Office claims) it was delivered. Which means they're sending me another set of books, at their expense. Which means I have cost Studio Foglio money with my order rather than giving it to them.

They're being very nice about it. I still feel bad.

It's a great comic, for those of you who don't read it yet. And their customer service apparently rocks just as hard. Just so you know.

I'll be ordering the books at the local comic distributor. That way I support local small business as well as the Foglios, and I have the benefit of carrying them away in my own greedy little hands.

maybe I'll get Jeff the Buck Godot set, he enjoys reading that online.

I want to find some more places to read fic. Such potential for GG fanfic! hee.

And you have to love the fact that they sell steampunk goggles.

Sorry, 'gaslamp fantasy'

A lot of the Buck Godot material looks like his older work (I have Zap Gun For Hire and PSmIth, and they're both awesome.) Some of it I don't recognize, so I'll have to walk through the archive and figure out what's what.

He's actually published at the very least Gallimaufry before as a much rougher black and white comic. It's neat to see how far the quality of the artwork has come.
