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.

Page number note: Each page entry contains the page numbers from both the published volume and web comic images. The web page numbers are in parenthesis and are zero-padded to match the format used in the online images.

Short Story Break: "FanFiction" Edit

Location: Inn, and crossing the Atlantic.

My goodness, isn't Agatha's situation looking hopeless? Locked in a cell with a bunch of spooky religious fanatics while a mechanical megalomaniac works on the nastiest way to kill you sure is a rotten way to spend the holidays. Mwa ha.

So we'll just leave Agatha there for a while as she works out what to do next. (We know, but we're not telling her.) While she stews, we'll hop on over in time and space to the seven-page short story Fan Fiction; written just for us by the amazingly sparky Shaenon K. Garrity of Narbonic.com. We are thrilled and honored to bring you this one, and we hope you like it as much as we do!

Page number note: This story was published at the end of Agatha Heterodyne and the Circus of Dreams, so the first page numbers are from the volume IV print edition.
