5.0 out of 5 stars Most affordable way to start collecting Girl Genius, March 7, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Girl Genius Omnibus Volume One: Agatha Awakens (Hardcover)
This review is not about the content of the book. If you're curious about the story and hesitant to buy the book I strongly recommend you check out the Girl Genius website--the entire story is online, it's just never as comfortable to curl up with a good browser window.

I bought the Tor color omnibus version largely because of the cost. There are a *lot* of Girl Genius books now, and my budget was limited. If you are a very serious fan and don't have teen/tween kids stealing your books then you might prefer the individual books.

The Tor edition is just slightly smaller than the Airship Press edition. (Approximately 1" shorter and slightly narrower pages.) The size is still very readable, much larger than the old black & white omnibus edition. The book is a standard hardcover with dust jacket, just like most other hardcover novels you'll find on Amazon. The paper is perhaps not as nice quality as the Airship versions, but you get what you pay for. The quality of the images is great, and the book is nice to read. While it doesn't include any extras, it does have a handy introduction to the main characters and simplified cover pages to mark where each of the original books starts.

I'm really glad that the Foglios have managed to get this color omnibus printed, and I'm hoping that more will soon follow.
