Volume summary: Volume 4 of Act 2

The graphic novels in the canon consist of fifteen published volumes in print, a sixteenth volume complete and available and a seventeenth volume in progress on the web. Starting with the fourteenth volume, the story has now entered Act 2 and the volume numbers have started over at one. Volumes in Act 2 will be identified in the chronology by the act number, a dash, and then the volume number; for example, Act 2, Volume 1 will be numbered 2-1. Eventually, the volumes in the first part, Act 1, will be renumbered to match.

The chronology pages describe the comics to assist scholars in finding the page on which something occurred. For each comic, the chronology pages identify the characters that appear, actions taken, significant quotes, and other notes. Section titles are from the canon unless otherwise noted.

For a partial timeline of the events in the comic, see Internal Chronology.

For more information on the double-page spreads in this volume, see double-page spreads in Girl Genius.

For more information on special pages in this volume, see the list of special pages, notes, and annotations.

Forum:2016-10-28 (Friday)
Agatha, Gil, Tarvek
Agatha, Gil, and Tarvek are attending a Halloween party. Gil and Tarvek are heatedly arguing, seemingly over the best way to make the punch. Agatha turns in surprise, to stare at a pumpkin on a table near her which is being carved into a jack-o-lantern…from the inside.
Text below page image: "It's the Halloween 2016 wallpaper! Below, you can download a high-resolution image in the size of your choice, or even a zipped file of all the different types." This seems to be a tribute to a Charles Addams cover for The New Yorker magazine from October 30, 1989. This cover shows a pumpkin in a pumpkin patch on a moonlit night, also being carved into a jack-o-lantern from the inside.

The in-comic avatars of Phil and Kaja meet cute. Kaja is sitting on a complex elevating stool, reaching for the top shelf of a tall bookcase and has dislodged a book (entitled How They Met) onto Phil's head while reaching for another book (entitled Fate).
How They Met On the Girl Genius LiveJournal page for Wednesday, November 15, 2016, Kaja gives this reason for the interruption: "Ok, we've got some ducks to get in a row, and nobody makes a row like a bunch of ducks. So here's a silly drawing that nobody's seen before, to amuse you while we sort things out. More on this later! Quack. <3 --Kaja"

  1. This page is numbered 017, but that is almost certainly an error; it should be page 005. The previous page was numbered 004, and the following one 006.
  2. It is hard to distinguish whether the character on top of the coach with Dimo is Malek or Varpa on this page because the figure is drawn so small, but he is clearly shown to be Malek on the next page.
  3. This page is numbered 017, but that is almost certainly an error; it should be 019. There has already been a page 017, the previous page was numbered 018, and the following one 020. This is not the first time a page has been given the number 017 by mistake.
  4. This is probably a reference to an animated cartoon called "La Petite Parade" (1959), part of the Modern Madcaps series produced by Famous Studios.
