Agatha Heterodyne and the Beetleburg Clank

Agatha Heterodyne and the Beetleburg Clank by Phil and Kaja Foglio.  Volume 1 of Agatha Heterodyne, Girl Genius!

Some series are just stories plopped in the same setting.  Some are the episodic adventures of a character.  Still others have continuity, events in one affecting the next, and this can lead up series that are in fact a single story separated into volume.  And Agatha's tale is definitely the last.

Clank is an excellent introduction to it.

No Cure For The Paladin Blues

No Cure For The Paladin Blues by Rich Burlew Order of the Stick, volume 2

In which the Order of the Stick gets plotting -- it does continue what was started with the first one, so there are spoilers for that ahead -- and (ta-da!) leaves the dungeon.  I note that Burlew's commentary on the story is interesting, but does also contain spoilers, so you may want to skip them unless you've followed it online and know who's who.
