It’s all about Science and Steampunk! (And maybe a little bit about Victorian Underwear.)
Book/Comic/Web-Comic: Girl Genius: A Gaslamp Fantasy with Adventure, Romance and Mad Science
- A wonderful Steampunk Web-Comic by Phil and Kaja Foglio available at GirlGeniusOnline.com
- If you’re new to this one, definitely start in the archives here.
- Girl Genius tells the story of Agatha Heterodyne, a builder of “clanks” in a Steampunk Victorian Era Europe and her ongoing adventures.
- It’s a fun steampunk/gaslamp romp with a fun heroine, lots of airships, and a huge cast of quirky characters. You have got to meet some Jagerkin.
Music: ‘Here Comes Science’ by They Might Be Giants
- A 2009 Album by TMBG. While technically a children’s album, both Kelly and Mel like this one.
- Check out all of the Music Videos from the album here!
- The great sun debate (gas or plasma) is settled in this album. You all recall the big sun debate, right???
- You get the DVD and CD when you purchase the physical version.

Mel: @superherotexts: Like it says, it’s Texts From Superheros.
Kelly: @nailedit: As you might suspect, these people did not, in fact, “nail it”.
