Saw an advertisement for this somewhere and thought it looked really interesting. I got it through interlibrary loan and loved it. I was beyond excited to realize that it's available online as well.
Agatha lives in a possibly Bavarian world circa 200 years ago where mechanics and magic collide. Those with a spark have phenomenal inventing and mechanical prowess. Agatha appears totally hopeless but is kept at the college anyway b/c the Head really likes her. She's sweet but seems a little bumbly. Then we start getting peaks about the truth about Agatha, who is definitely way more time then she seems.

I'm ecstatic to find out that it's a webcomic online since my library doesn't have many more volumes. ( )

Interesting, and features a character working for and taking care of herself. It didn't really do much for me, not sure why. Steampunk seems like it should be totally fascinating, I just keep finding examples of the genre that seem....flat to me, I guess. ( )

The steampunk-flavored action is punctuated by comedy in a setting where over-the-top seems plausible. Agatha is a wonderful character, smart, pretty, beset by unfair circumstances she struggles to triumph over, and admirable in her determination.
