It's bound in a kind of plush hardcover that is sturdy and comfortable to read with beautiful cover art.
Katharos
The drawings are well done, they very brightly colored and they do an excellent job of showing action and character emotion.
K. Eckert
The story mixes page-by-page episodes with longer arcs that cross volumes and that apparently will span the whole series.

Format: Paperback
Agatha Heterodyne is the last, lost heir to the heroic Heterodyne Boys ... themselves heirs to a family of particularly powerful and cruel mad scientists (Sparks). She is also the heir to another Spark family: Lucifer Mongfish and his daughter Lucrezia. Agatha's journey to her legendary, feared ancestral home has been sidetracked, for she is now trapped between the ruling Spark of Europe (Klaus Wolfenbach), the revived spirit of Lucrezia, the pale amazons who worship Lucrezia, and various others whose loyalties are uncertain--but certainly do not include Agatha.

Agatha's friends are not idle. Master Payne's Circus of Adventure sets off to rescue her, aided by three monsters loyal to the House of Heterodyne. They are joined by a pair of plumbers. And, of course, Agatha plots to rescue herself. When plans collide, nothing goes as planned ... and the result could be disaster for Agatha, Klaus and all of Europe as plot threads are loosed upon the landscape. But for Agatha, rescue is at hand with a pie in the face and a fog that leads into a world of dreams.

This is perhaps not the place to join the story. If you don't want to begin at the beginning, then I would recommend starting with Volume 4, Agatha Heterodyne and the Circus of Dreams. But do please join it. The story mixes page-by-page episodes with longer arcs that cross volumes and that apparently will span the whole series. The authors' description, "Adventure, Romance, Mad Science" is well borne out, the series is filled with humor, the characters can be counted on to each bring something to the party, and the artwork is superb. (The first volume, in black and white, was an appetizer.

Format: Hardcover
Girl Genius 6: Agatha Heterodyne and The Golden Trilobite is a wonderful book for children of all ages, or at least ten to *harumph* years old. In This Volume, Agatha resolves several of the dangling threads of the previous five and unleashes her bent but funny genius.

The production values are high, the binding excellent, and the print clear and readable, and the inking and coloring crisp and well balanced, letting the distinctive Foglio style shine. The writing is funny and not, I think, too reliant on knowing a lot about previous stories, although a working knowledge of #5 would help as it is a direct continuation of the plot.

Format: Hardcover
This edition of Girl Genius is an exquisitely well-crafted book. Includes comics from Monday, March 13, 2006 to Friday, February 23, 2007[..] with Agatha in Sturmhalten. It's bound in a kind of plush hardcover that is sturdy and comfortable to read with beautiful cover art. Colors are crisp and vibrant. Several extra drawings are included as well as "An Agatha Heterodyne 1 Minute Mystery." I would love to get the rest of the Girl Genius hardcover books (1-5) but they seem to sell out and become unavailable rather quickly.

Format: Paperback
I think that this is the best comic series running today. They just keep getting better and better. Very funny, very original, and very suspenseful. Fundamentally a steampunk fantasy, clearly anime/manga influenced, but very American in its sly sense of humor. Never predictable, the plot is involved and surprisingly sophisticated. And the art is lovely, if unapologetically cartoonish. I can't wait for the books; I'm reading each page as it comes out on the Girl Genius web site--but I still have a pre-order in for the next volume.

That also makes a great gift. Just wish the 'powers that be' would make more omnibuses (sp?) They have books 1,2,3 in one volume, it would be nice if they'd continue with 4,5,6 etc...
Reguardless, a must-read for graphic novel fans.

Delivery was quick, item as described, Happy Customer!!

This is the sixth TP in the Girl Genius series. I continues to really enjoy this series. It’s been a lot of fun to read and always has me laughing out loud. I really enjoy the complex story and the crazy cast of characters. Just FYI this review may contain spoilers if you haven’t read the previous books in the series.

Agatha has been possessed by the evil Lucrezia who is responsible for the Long War. Agatha is trying to fight the possession, but it is a losing battle. Meanwhile the Wulfenbachs have found out that Agatha is still alive and come to apprehend her. It’s a crazy mix-up because we don’t know who is loyal to Agatha and who is loyal to Lucrezia. People are also confused about the fact that Agatha is not actually Agatha. While all of this craziness ensues, Agatha’s friends from the Circus are trying to break into the castle to rescue her.

These are getting harder and harder to review. There is a huge cast of characters and the story has gotten increasingly complicated. The book switches between 3-4 different groups of characters and storylines. Still, it was never hard to follow and the story is incredibly interesting.

I continue to enjoy the large cast of very quirky characters. Agatha still features in the story a lot. We learn a lot in this volume about how Agatha can use her voice to control things. We also get to see her do a lot of inventing and finally found out what all those Klanks she made are going to be used for.

Krosp, the Emperor of Cats, continues to be the character that cracks me up the most. That being said all of the characters are highly entertaining.

The drawings are well done, they very brightly colored and they do an excellent job of showing action and character emotion.
