I received this e-mail from Bundle of Holding today – Girl Genius Bundle. I haven’t read the comics or ebooks, but Wikipedia has this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Girl_Genius. According to some, it’s steampunk, but one of the creators calls it “gaslight fantasy.”
Through MONDAY, OCTOBER 26 the Girl Genius Bundle takes you on the complete First Journey of Agatha Heterodyne

EPIC ISOMETRIC MAPS ENDS TONIGHT!

With these ready-to-color monochrome maps and modular icons, all hand-drawn in a consistent isometric style, you can construct your own large interior and exterior encounters, then populate them with hero and monster figures, trap cards, and spell effects. Compose small encounters or massive multi-level dungeon and fortresses in any graphics program. Whether you use Roll20, Fantasy Grounds, MapTool, Astral, FoundryVTT, or any other virtual tabletop, you’ll gain a new perspective in your online RPG adventures with the big Epic Isometric Core Set plus nearly a dozen packs of heroes, monsters, and props. It’s a US$79 retail value for just over $22 — but the virtual tabletop shuts down for this Epic Isometric offer tonight!
FEEL THE SPARK OF GIRL GENIUS
Through Monday, October 26 the Girl Genius Bundle brings you a zeppelin-full of digital graphic albums and ebook novels featuring Studio Foglio’s Girl Genius, the “gaslamp fantasy” webcomic of adventure, romance, and mad science. In an alternate Europe in the throes of Industrial Revolution, the inventive scientists called Sparks develop new and interesting ways to smash each other’s castles. Agatha Heterodyne, a hapless student at Transylvania Polygnostic University, discovers her own Spark. As she obsessively pursues her monstrous heritage and birthright, all Europa watches carefully, for fear Agatha may become a monster herself.
Created by Phil and Kaja Foglio (What’s New With Phil & Dixie?, MythAdventures, and many more), Girl Genius debuted as a quarterly comic book in 2000, then became a successful thrice-weekly webcomic in 2005. The series has garnered a shelf of awards, a novel series, a Munchkin expansion, a Cheapass Games card game, licensed merchandise, a thriving Patreon campaign, and a just-ended Girl Genius computer game Kickstarter campaign. This new offer presents .PDFs of the first 13 graphic-novel volumes — the 1,814-page “Act 1” of Agatha Heterodyne’s story — plus other Studio Foglio treats like the two volumes of Phil Foglio’s crazed space opera Buck Godot: Zap Gun for Hire.
(Note: Like all Bundle of Holding offers, these titles are downloadable digital files, not physical albums.)
Pay just US$14.95 to get all seven titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $73), including full-color .PDFs of the first three Girl Genius comics albums (collecting the first ten issues of the print comic); three Girl Genius novels by Phil and Kaja Foglio from Start Science Fiction (in ePub and Kindle formats); the 2001 Secret Blueprints comic that introduced the setting; and lots of fun freebies from the Studio Foglio website.
And if you pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $30.34 (current price, but it will probably go up), you’ll level up and also get our entire Bonus Collection with twelve more titles worth an additional $102, including no less than ten more graphic albums and both volumes of Buck Godot: Zap Gun for Hire.
Ten percent of your payment (after gateway fees) goes to this offer’s designated charity, Feeding America. Feeding America is a US-based network of more than 200 food banks that feed more than 46 million people through food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other community-based agencies.
Enroll at Transylvania Polygnostic and start studying this Girl Genius Bundle before it vanishes in a puff of steam Monday, October 26.
