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.

Seffie, Martellus, Lab Technician
Martellus would rather use science to investigate why the sword of the Storm King is showing strange electrical activity than go to the party Grandma is throwing in his honor, but Seffie insists that he stop working and get ready for the party.
Martellus: "A party?! Nonsense! Look! The Sword of the Storm King is actually reacting to something! I've got to find out why! Just tell Grandma I can't possibly go to a party now!"
Seffie: "Listen to me, my darling brother—if you do not get dressed right now—I will strangle you myself to spare Grandma's aged fingers!"
Martellus: "Seffie—I am doing science here!"

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.

Note from Kaja Foglio at the bottom of the image on the Girl Genius website: "This week, Phil and I had our orange belt test for Kenpo…and somehow, between the punching, shouting, and tired muscles, we never managed to get Monday's page sorted out. We did, however, earn our belts, and also got this drawing prepped to share with you all. So it wasn't a total wash. If you like the lovely European Christmas Monsters, we've got a new shirt over at Offworld featuring the Krampus. Offworld's given us a special discount code which you'll find in the ad below today's art. —Kaja"

Note from Kaja on LiveJournal: "<3 So...long (looong) ago, Phil and I heard about the Namahage, and decided that every New Year, in Mechanicsburg, the Heterodyne goes around town with some Jägers in tow...asking if all the children in the house were behaving properly and such like. Then the whole Krampus thing hit the States...we had no idea! Now it's been years, and we still haven't gotten around to telling that story, and the story of how Mechanicsburg kept its traditions all that time when there wasn't a Heterodyne in town, but we'll get there someday. In the meantime, here's St. Nicholas and a Krampus who's recently seen a very exciting movie. --Kaja'

Note from Kaja: "Hey! Here's me, on my birthday, looking horrible. Heh. Among other things, I got a mini shop vac and a copy of the Voynich Manuscript. My Mom made me a cake, the kind with the really good frosting. I used one of the cards to blow out those candles--no sneezing on the cake. I was going to have some friends over tomorrow, but had to cancel so I don't kill them. Maybe next week, guys. --Kaja"

Phil (dressed and masked as a Plague doctor), Plague Pets
Phil is sitting at the drawing board, costumed as a plague doctor. There are three cats and a dog in the picture, all wearing similar masks. One cat perches on the back of the chair, another peers over the drawing board, and the third is sitting on Phil's lap. The dog is in the foreground with its tongue lolling out of its mouth, drooling (despite the fact that it is masked).

Since everyone in the Foglio household is ill, including Phil, he drew a page of filler art with himself as a plague doctor.

Note from Kaja: "Well, now Phil is also sick, which brings the tally up to...let's see...everyone in the house. He's drawn this instead of a comic, and a good thing, too, since our color artist Cheyenne Wright has no electricity. This is because the firemen messed up the wiring when they hacked a big ol' hole in the side of his house after the roof caught fire. Cheyenne and his family have already had the flu, so they spent last night at our house. They are all fine, but not terribly happy about the fact that their house is all smoky and has a hole in it...and no electricity. Adventures! --Kaja"

Kaja (dressed and masked as a Plague doctor), More Plague Pets
Kaja is sitting at the drawing board, costumed as a plague doctor. There are four cats pictured as well, all wearing similar masks. One, rearing up on the back of Kaja's chair, is wearing a hat; another, perched on the drawing board is holding a large fork; the third, in Kaja's lap, is holding a small scythe; and the fourth is sitting on the floor holding drumsticks, playing a "drumkit" made up of three human(?) skulls.

Death
On page on drawing board.
Since everyone in the Foglio household is still ill, including Kaja, Phil drew a page of filler art with her as a plague doctor.

Note from Kaja: "Yes, we're still sick, and our color artist Cheyenne and his family continue to forge ahead after their house fire. Not much else to report just now, except that we're very close to getting the medals from the last KickStarter campaign in from the pin maker and out the door to our supporters. Hooray! --Kaja"

Jaron: "That does seem needlessly complicated, Sire."
Martellus (to Jaron): "Jaron, I don't know who exactly is behind this little show—but a show it is, and all of Paris is watching. They will see how a King leads."
Martellus (shouted loudly, to crowd): "All who are loyal to the Lightning Crown—to me!"
