Girl Genius Comic goes here

<3 I'm in Victoria BC for the Victoria Steam Expo. I finally get to stay in the Empress. I still remember standing outside the Bengal Room, smelling the curry, and not being allowed in because I was under 18. Tonight I got my curry! I am now well over 18...--Kaja <3

Holy Cow, new wallpapers!

"I saw some armor in a burning museum that's to die for."

Ok, *this* kind of princess I can go for.

Given Zeetha's taste in clothing, why do I think this armor that is "to die for" will likely cause poor Agatha to blush a most interesting shade of red?

And what did I tell you, Folks? Costume change!

The Skifandrian model of princessing suits the jurisdiction very well.

Oh, PLEASE make a shirt with the battle axe (and maybe a trilobyte?) that just says, "That kind of princess."

Ceiling Lucrezia IS WATCHING YOU

And of course, given that this is Mechanicsburg, it's a museum with exhibits showing you how to burn things.

A museum that is not damaged by occasional immolation.

Her choker is missing in two panels - or is she hanging her head that far?

So now Agatha is leaving the castle? Interesting...

Agatha/Violetta? Why not?

I can see a tiny hint of locket on the fourth panel, but not on the sixth.

DUDE!!! This is the best comic ever. Seriously, I want an art print to hang on my wall. Or just a desktop wallpaper.

Phil, Kaja, you guys ROCK.

I want to be THAT kind of Princess!

Now picturing a green-maned pegasus pony explaining to Princess Luna why she needs a battleaxe. "Yes, yes, I know you can raise the moon without it. Having an axe isn't about what you do with it, it's about what people THINK you'll do with it!"

That kind of princess. Goes beyond self rescuing princess and even past the princess who does the rescuing and heads right into the princess someone may need to be rescued from territory!

Or that you might need to be rescued from but don't WANT to be rescued from!

You would think that the Heterodynes would have their own version(s) of Stark Industries armor somewhere around the castle.

Non-conductive please!

I do hope Zeetha recalls that Sparks really should wear non-conducting armor, with enough flex to let them get on with their latest projects.

Also, hope Zeetha gets some armor too on this shopping trip.

What else will they find I wonder?

Posted by: tikatu (tikatu )
Posted at: April 20th, 2012 02:27 pm (UTC)
um

I wonder whose armor they're going to find? Sparky Heterodyne girls weren't exactly plenteous. I'm sure, though, that whatever they find, it will be practical. As much as Zeetha likes her "cha cha cha", when it comes to being a warrior princess, practicality wins out.

According to an armourer I read recently, having gender-obvious dished chestplate is a Bad Idea. If they can find or kludge a suit that can work with her proportions generally, it'll work fine.

Sleepy fox

I *love* the expression in the last panel. (And I wonder how many readers ended up hearing Zeetha's first line in Raul Julia's voice? ;-) )

I want to see a followup panel that has Agatha going "Um, Zeetha, that's not a museum, that's the bedroom closet. And *sigh* apparently it is *supposed* to be burning....stupid heating system.."

to die for!..

hate Foglios, their word playing just cannot be translated :-)

Posted by: sam_arkand (sam_arkand )

I'm reminded of Pratchett's Lords and Ladies, when Magrat finds the armor of Queen Ynci the Short Tempered.

I love how the Foglios are playing off the concept that Agatha has all the trappings of the classic "Evil Princess", but is the Good Girl. Not the Nice Girl, by any stretch, mind!

...and hoo boy, that little smirk just hits all the Mad, Bad, and Boy Do You Want To Know Her buttons.

Yes, I think so; this is the first time we've seen Agatha meet Zeetha since Higgs took her to Mamma Gkika's.
