Girl Genius is a three-time winner of the highest honor awarded for works of science fiction and fantasy: the prestigious Hugo Award. The webcomic follows Agatha Clay, a seemingly mild-mannered mechanic who discovers she has inherited the abilities of a spark (a feared mad scientist with the natural ability to understand complex sciences and wield them for their own chaotic purposes). Even more shocking, Agatha discovers that she is the descendent of a long lost line of sparks whose unparalleled skills and insanity made them legends in their own time. Cleverly written and beautifully illustrated by Kaja and Phil Foglio, Girl Genius is full of adventure, romance, and plenty of MAD SCIENCE!Last updated:
This highly praised comic is the work of the celebrated author and artist, Tom Siddell. The story follows Antimony Carver as she attends an isolated boarding school called Gunnerkrigg Court. Antimony soon learns that the Court is no ordinary school - the teachers are hiding ancient conspiracies, it is bordered by a forest full of dangerous monsters, and the school is inhabited by strange creatures and students with special abilities. In the course of her adventures, Antimony befriends an ancient trickster god, discovers her own supernatural powers, and begins investigating the dark secrets of the court.Last updated:
If you aren’t already faithful readers, allow me to let you in on a little secret: these comics rock. The stories are masterfully crafted, the art is top notch, and the characters are instantly endearing. It's no wonder that these comics have won so many rewards and attracted such loyal fans. We also appreciate that both comics feature characters who make great role models. For example, Antimony Carver and Agatha Clay are some of the strongest and most intelligent women you could hope to meet and their friends will stop at nothing to stand by their sides.Last updated:
Why yes, yes there is! The original Legendary Showdown features The Adventures of Dr. McNinja, an incredible comic by Christopher Hastings (the writer of Adventure Time comics, Marvels’ “Longshot Saves the Marvel Universe” miniseries, and much more). The original Legendary Showdown was so well received that we decided it was time to expand the Legendary Showdown family and help promote other comics that we love. The new version can be used as a full stand-alone game or an expansion. Which, if you play your cards right, means that you could find Dr. McNinja with a Spork Gun facing off against a tiny Dingbot armed with a Moon Laser.Last updated:
The rules are the same, but we have swapped out a large number of action, weapon, bonus, and face down cards to create an all new experience that allows additional strategies. In other words, Machines and Magic is a new flavor of Legendary Showdown - a flavor designed to delightfully complement the original game or be delicious all on its own. Some of the changes include negative face down cards and a new category of cards called “Play Immediately cards” that add an occasional dash of chaos. Please do not lick the cards.Last updated:
Just add the amount listed for the add-on in the description of the reward level to your pledge. Different reward levels have different add-on options to allow us to account for shipping and offer discounts. If your reward level doesn't offer the add-ons you would like, just choose a level better suited to your needs. Our reward levels are designed to allow you to order any combination of rewards in the simplest and most affordable way possible.
FYI: add-ons have free shipping. European Union (EU) prices are slightly higher because they include VAT (a tax that the EU charges on imports), allowing us to provide reward to everyone at our best price.Last updated:
Shipping within the USA is free, because we love you. International shipping is more expensive, but have discounted the shipping a lot, because we love you too.
For rewards going to the European Union, shipping and add-on prices are slightly higher because they include VAT so you won't have to pay it later (that makes it easier and cheaper for you). We will ship games to European Union backers directly from Europe.
For international backers outside the European Union, we will be shipping your rewards to you directly, unless there are enough backers in your country to getLast updated:
Some countries may require a small duty fee or tax, but a lot of countries don't charge for small packages or games. We are taking care of the VAT (Value Added Tax) for backers in the European Union with our nifty pledge system, so EU backers don't have to worry about extra fees later.Last updated:
