Kaja Foglio and I were dorm neighbors for several years. She was a hoot. With *fascinating* friends. Who sometimes would end up in my dorm room. I sometimes think I see shadows of some of these people in her books.

I haven't read the first comics for years, but I remember it took me a while to catch on to the fact that the uber-ruler guy wasn't really the bad guy. He's doing everything he can to make a space for civilization. And Agatha, for better or for worse, is a destabilizing force. His reaction to that drives a lot more of this story than I first realized. Maybe I'm just getting old, but I am increasingly finding him the second most sympathetic character.

Well worth the time.
