Welcome to the Girl Genius Wiki, a fan-created resource for the fabulous gaslamp fantasy comic, and now a fabulous webcomic, produced by Studio Foglio.

If you are new to Girl Genius you may find A (Spoiler Free) Guide for New Girl Genius Readers to be helpful.

Congratulations to Kaja Foglio, Phil Foglio, Cheyenne Wright and everyone at Studio Foglio for winning the first three Hugo awards in the Best Graphic Story category. [1]

Girl Genius is an epic graphic novel published online for free every M-W-F. Any entry here may contain spoilers for the current storyline. So if you somehow arrived here first, head over to the first page and start reading! The guy in the bowler hat is Professor Phil Foglio himself.


The Foglios are in England for LonCon 3, the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention. They and Cheyenne Wright have been nominated for a Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story. The results will be announced on Sunday, August 17. During their trip, Cheyenne Wright is filling in with a guest story, Homecoming King.

The "new look" to the Girl Genius website, mentioned three weeks ago at the end of a blog entry by Phil has finally appeared. So far, it appears to be a new, more Steampunkish theme overlaid onto the old content, but there is now the option to bookmark individual pages of the comic through the web interface.

The art for the Muses Pairs deck is now complete and can be viewed at the Cheapass Games website, along with the art for Cheyenne's Professor Elemental Pairs deck.

The Girl Genius Kickstarter project to print volume 13, Agatha Heterodyne and the Sleeping City, has been successfully funded. The base funding goal of $55,000 was reached in well under 24 hours. The final total raised was $219,327 with 3,378 backers. All sixteen stretch goals were funded including a serious short film (as opposed to the goofy one that already exists) on "How We Make Comics" as the final goal at $200,000.

The Language of Fans[2] video, starring Kaja Foglio, is available on the relatively new Girl Genius Youtube channel. This video is a result of the Girl Genius Volume 12 Printing and Reprint Frenzy!, but is free for all to see. The "fainting video" from the same Kickstarter and "How We Make Web Comics" (a humorous short short film that is part of the introductory video for the Girl Genius Volume 13: Agatha Heterodyne & The Sleeping City Kickstater) are also available on this channel.

New ReleasesEdit

Volume XII has been printed and is available in softcover from the TopatoCo online store and in PDF format from DriveThruComics. All of the previous volumes have been reprinted, so the all volume bundle is available again. Updated editions of most Girl Genius PDFs are available at the DriveThru Comics store (including the newly available Volume XI PDF and the color edition of Volume I). See studio news on Girl Genius Adventures for updates. The Girl Genius Novelization is proceeding. The second book is available in hard cover, paperback, electronic, and audiobook formats.

The fine print
  • This site is not approved by, sponsored by, or affiliated with Studio Foglio, LLC or Airship Entertainment. This site contains portions of images clipped from the comic. Since they found us and linked to us (eeeee!), we hope this means our use of clipped images is "fair". No copyright infringement is intended. (See Copyrights) Of course, as TPU students, we strive for utmost accuracy and being absolutely, positively non-biased in our research on the early life of Agatha Heterodyne. Especially where the powerful, brilliant, perfectly reasonable, charming, dashingly handsome Baron is concerned. (Did we mention reasonable?) Any inaccuracies or omissions are the fault of our textbooks, we swear.
  • If you remember What's New with Phil and Dixie, the guy in the bowler hat may look familiar.
