Professor P. Foglio frequently includes humorous references to other webcomics in the panels of Girl Genius. The Professora has started tagging these as "bumps for other webcomics" in the LiveJournal echo site. The following comics have all been mentioned at one time or another.
Occasionally, other artists pay playful verbal or visual homage to one aspect of Studio Foglio's work or another. For sake of balance, these "shoutins" are included below the shoutouts.

Shoutins from other webcomicsEdit
|Carry On||Kathryn Garrison||Anthropomorphic comic concerning a hyena and her friends and family, with multiple Fogliesque references.|
Posters in the background showing various musicals currently playing includes one called "La Kaja Foglio, An Airship Entertainment Production" and uses the panel of Agatha surrounded by the three Jägergenerals.
The female protagonist had read furry-versions of Studio Foglio works, including Grrl Genius, but finds a friend's collection of Insexxx (in a plain brown wrapper) - it continues for six strips. Later, the frog "Gil Froglio" (the pastiche of Phil Foglio himself) shows up and persists in conversation over the next few strips (Mrs. Froglio does not resemble Kaja very closely).
There is an extra non-story panel that speculates about the Foglio household].
The characters read Girl Genius.
|Full Frontal Nerdity||Aaron Williams||The characters compare the next Minecraft to "Girl Genius, The MMO".|
|Freefall||Mark Stanley||A dingbot shows up representing clanks in general, as part of a series of strips with background "guest robots". The caption reads: "Clanks are from the excellent web comic Girl Genius, by Phil and Kaja Foglio. © 2007"|
|Legend of Bill||David Reddick||A character tries on various costumes, one being Agatha.|
|The Mansion of E||Robert M. Cook||If you think Girl Genius moves slowly... at any rate, a reference to Othar and another to the Winslow.|
|Nodwick||Aaron Williams||Nodwick is a fantasy RPG-themed comic. Technically, this is a shout to What's New with Phil and Dixie, but it remains of interest.|
|Nukees||Darren "Gav" Bleuel||Nukees is very much a geek strip - it did a linux "Conjunction Junction" riff, for instance. In the News section (below the strip until archived) on the same day as this strip, Darren noted, "(1/23/2009) Wait, what day is it? I think I'm a couple days late, but happy twelfth birthday to Nukees. Soon my comic will start growing body hair, talking back to me, and noticing Girl Genius."|
|Plugged Nickel||Ronald MacKinnon||Vanilla and Mycroft are dressed as Agatha and a jägermonster.|
|PS238||Aaron Williams||While not referring directly to Girl Genius, the villainous VonFoggs are a direct homage to Phil Foglio and his two children. (Confirmed by directly asking during Dragon*Con 2009.)|
|Shine||Erin Ptah||Agatha is shown running after a dingbot at a convention of mad scientists.|
|Something Positive||R.K. Millholland||An offer in a store: "Goggles by Phil & Kaja - Look like a Girl Genius".
A Girl Genius poster at a comic book store.
A sign proclaiming "Phil & Kaja Foglio Park" in response to a .
|Two Lumps||J. Grant and Mel Hynes||"Utilising a Folgio macro-lens..." on the turret of a castle.|
|The Whiteboard||"Doc" Nickel||A portrait of Boris Dolokhov is on the wall in the Christmas 2009 comic. The other two portraits are shoutouts to Something Positive and Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal.|
|The Whiteboard||"Doc" Nickel||Humongulus wants paint.|
|Arthur, King of Time and Space||Paul Gadzikowski||Apparently, Gil and Agatha run a business on the planet Pudsey IV.|
