Why You Should All Be Reading Girl Genius
Oh, sure, there's madness and science and fanservice and everything.
For context: Agatha Clay is actually Agatha Heterodyne, the secret mad scientist daughter and heir to a heroic (recently, but often psychotic in the past) family. She is currently inside the falling apart (both physically and mentally) ancient Heterodyne home, Castle Heterodyne. While the main central processor and personality of Castle Heterodyne is allied with her, the rest of the castle doesn't know her from Eve, and just wants to kill or enslave everyone inside. Also currently inside are a fake Heterodyne heir, and two of her main love interests, one of whom is part of the group behind the fake Heterodyne, the other the heir to the largest empire in Europe (who Agatha also has a big crush on). Current head of said empire also wants Agatha dead, because Agatha is the current host to "The Other," the main antagonist of her parents, and who is actually her mother (or possibly an alternate reality version of her mother, but that's my own speculation). Anyway, also with Agatha are a ragtag bunch of misfits (which are different from the previous band of misfits who are currently banded around her crush, but that's irrelevant right now).
Man, context can be a bitch. Anyway, today's comic:
Oh my god, I laughed for four whole minutes.
