Book Review: Agatha H and the Airship City by Phil & Kaja Foglio

15 Oct

This is the written novelization of the first two volumes of the Girl Genius graphic novels. In other words, if you are already a fan, there is nothing new here, at least not technically. But I still recommend reading it, and not just from a “completist” perspective.

There are things that can be done in a traditional novel that can not be accomplished in a graphic novel (and vice versa), including some deeper character introspection.

This was a fun, fast read, and I hope that Phil & Kaja Foglio are able to do more novelizations of the Girl Genius stories.

    I enjoyed this book more than i expected to, probably because there are things you can do in a book that you can’t do in a graphic novel. I heard the Foglio’s are working on a novelization of volumes 4-6 of the graphic novel. With what free time, I’ve got no idea.
