Now, don't let my above comments make you think that the comedy has been replaced entirely with drama. Far from it. We still get a story with robotic cows that shoot lasers from their eyes and other such delightful subject matter. As a bonus, there is the inclusion of City Face 2 which is the "super good" story of a pigeon becoming a... human businessman? Something like that.
In terms of book quality, as in the actual hardcopy, I would say the quality is more like book one. My only complaints with the previous book was that the binding seemed like it wasn't quite as well constructed as the first. This volume I have no such complaints. The pages seem better constructed and the cloth binding is in the back (something book 2 did not have).
In conclusion: Gunnerkrigg Court is worth your time and money even if you have read it online.Read more ›
In "Reason", we see our girls growing up. The book starts in the middle of their second year and gradually progresses through to the end. It's through this we see Annie attempting to set aside her shy, somewhat cold persona in an attempt to better socialize (and provide Kat with equal socializing opportunities). We are reintroduced to familiar side characters, watching them grow from mere background cutouts to flesh and blood characters. Favorites return for new adventures as we join Annie in her quests to better understand the Court and its increasingly sketchy history.
In this volume, we see the start of a separation between Annie and Kat, as marked by their respective abilities. Annie learns more about her etheric abilities, developing them from the mere ability to summon a blinker stone through using her stone for trickery, and even applying her etheric abilities in the real world. Her lessons are not limited, though, simply to knowledge of the etheric - Annie learns about friendship, love and even about her own personal heritage. Kat, meanwhile, progresses in the field of robotics and technology. Ever tech-savvy, she continues in her struggle to build Robot the perfect body.Read more ›
I only wish that the Internet version was updated daily instead of 3 times a week. Even then, I'm not sure how the author can produce the artwork - never mind keeping an interesting story line - at that pace.
Read the Internet version. Bookmark this product page first though, because you'll want to come back here to order the book.
The story, generally, concerns Antimony, a girl whose past is revealed through the progression of the comic, and her experiences at the peculiar boarding school, Gunnerkrigg Court.
The comic transforms really well to a book from it's original webcomic format. Volume 3 contains many of my favorite moments from this comic, and it's wonderful to see his art style take a huge leap on paper.
The printing is excellent--the pages have a really nice finish: some gloss, but not so much that it looks distracting or shiny.

This book is beautifully printed, with smooth shiny pages that are almost as tactilely pleasing as they are aesthetically pleasing. The art is gorgeous and the story is engaging. Read morePublished on June 6, 2013 by Marissa Armstrong
My favorite web comic, worth buying and reading again and again even after reading it online. Additionally getting to introduce the series to friends and have them borrow it.Published on May 6, 2013 by Vanessa R. Sealedge

The kids love this series, and I'm jealous that I never had graphic novels half this good when I was growing up. I'll just have to continue to use the kids as an excuse.Published on April 10, 2013 by Keith Mccullough
If you don't know the online webcomic, you should.
The hardcover book is well slick.
If you like GC, you'll love this.
this is a fantastic story line published initially on the web, and thus it's not exactly anything different from the free web comic. Read morePublished on January 20, 2012 by Daniel Kauwe
