Publisher Comments:

In a time when the Industrial Revolution has become an all-out war, Mad Science rules the World...with mixed success. At Transylvania Polygnostic University, Agatha Clay is a student with trouble concentrating and rotten luck. Dedicated to her studies but unable to build anything that actually works, she seems destined for a lackluster career as a minor lab assistant. But when the University is overthrown, a strange clank stalks the streets and it begins to look like Agatha might carry a spark of Mad Science after all.

Review:

"The sepia-and-white art is lively and appealing, with distinctive characters and a richly imagined environment. There are many humorous touches." School Library Journal

Review:

"The art style and abundant humor soften any harsh edges the book might have — violence is played chiefly for laughs. Readers who like steampunk, plucky heroines, or are fans of the Foglios' other works should enjoy this book." VOYA

Synopsis:

Adventure, Romance, Mad Science! Meet Agatha Clay-Transylvania Polygnostic University student with the drive to create...and the worst luck in the world. Back in print! This softcover book collects issues 1-3 of Phil and Kaja Foglio's gaslamp fanta

Scoopernicus, September 22, 2006 (view all comments by Scoopernicus)
Been a fan of Phil Foglio's work ever since I was a game playing pimply faced geek in the early 80's. This new series is wonderfully drawn, has a fascinating story line, and interesting, nuanced characters, as well as a wonderfully bizare sense of humor. The only reason I didn't give it a full five stars, is because the subsequent, full color books dazzle even more.
