Chronology - Volume IV

959pages on

Talk6

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.

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 this volume, see the list of special pages, notes, and annotations.

Page number note: The first 83 pages of the online comics have page numbers that match the printed version. Then some pages with no page numbers appear in the online version. Toward the end of the volume online page numbers reappear, but differ from the printed versions. Where the printed version has page 95. the online version has 91 (that is, counting as though the first comic in the volume was page 1). Both sets of page numbers are shown in this page, with the online page number shown in parenthesis if different. If no page number is shown in the online version of the comics page, the page number from the print edition is marked with an asterisk ('*') below.
