semi-update plus Time For Comics

I have spent 40 minutes of the past hour approving comments, so much for "no distractions" LOL

So let me tell you about Girl Genius, the online comic a friend told me about. Diane, said friend, is a great person, and when I saw her Facebook comment on Girl Genius I had no clue what it was all about, so she told me and included a link to the website where you can read it online (see link above).

Here's what wiki says about Girl Genius:
Girl Genius has the tagline of "Adventure, Romance, MAD SCIENCE!". It features a female lead character in an alternate-history Victorian-style "steampunk" setting, although elements veer from what is usually thought of as steampunk. Kaja Foglio, one of the co-creators, describes it as "gaslamp fantasy" instead to suggest its more fantastic style.

This fits! It's a great description without giving too much away (and I wouldn't want to, because I'm still early on and have no clue what is going to happen next. It's such a great story, though, that I try to read it whenever I have a couple minutes at hand - so it's no wonder I took up Nymeth's Time for Comics mini-challenge to read a bit more. I think I managed to read about 15 minutes total before the comment flood set it (at least for my small blog it was a real flood!)...

If you have some time at hand, check out Girl Genius (and tell me how you like it!)...
