My favorite comic is getting canceled -- and it's GOOD NEWS!

According to Kaja Foglio's Diary, Airship Books is suspending publication of the classic Gaslamp Fantasy, Girl Genius.

This is one of my favorite comic books of all time.

So why am I grinning like an idiot?

Because the story will continue on the web, as Girl Genius Online.

The idea is that the dead-tree quarterly book is really just a way of drumming up interest in the trade paperback collections (a point I've made repeatedly about mainstream superhero monthlies) -- and that a web comic can do that much more effectively.

For me, the idea of getting my Agatha Heterodyne fix three times a week instead of once every few months just makes me giddy.

New comics start on 18 April 2005. You can read the whole of Issue One here.

So what are you waiting for?
