Girl Genius 01: The Beetleburg Clank (B&W Edition)


Agatha Heterodyne and the Beetleburg Clank

In a time when the Industrial Revolution has become an all-out war, Mad Science rules the World…with mixed success.

At Transylvania Polygnostic University, Agatha Clay is a student with trouble concentrating and rotten luck. Dedicated to her studies but unable to build anything that actually works, she seems destined for a lackluster career as a minor lab assistant.

But when the University is overthrown, a strange “clank” stalks the streets and it begins to look like Agatha might carry a spark of Mad Science after all.

“A sly and witty graphic novel.”
—School Library Journal: Best Adult Books for High School Students 2003

Love the story of a female heroine in a sci-fantasy world. I've only just started reading Girl Genius after a recommendation by a friend. These PDFs make it so much easier to read than from a computer screen. Would really love this to be in full [...]

What can I say? It and Crisis on Infinite Earths are my favorite graphic novels. Even Watchman ranks behind those two. Girl Genius's biggest advantage? there are 10 of them! (so far). Thanks for a great series [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
