I first encountered Phil Foglio's work in the form of "What's New with Phil and Dixie" in Dragon Magazine way back when it first came out. I thought it was cleverly written, well drawn, and very funny. It was often the only reason I opened up Dragon Magazine (my brother had a subscription to it, not me). At some point I stopped reading "What's New" (I think my brother stopped getting "Dragon") and, although I remembered Phil's name well enough that I had a "Wow! He's not dead," moment when I discovered Girl Genius, as far as I was concerned, he might have dropped off the face of the earth; I was completely unaware of anything else he was doing.
I encountered Girl Genius in the most bass-ackwards way imaginable. About two years ago I was engrossed in the TV tropes web site and I came across a reference to the names Agatha Heterodyne and Gilgamesh Wulfenbach, and I thought, "Those sure are interesting names." I did a quick Google search and I soon was a rabid GG fan.
Playing in the sandEdit

Pages I watchEdit
As anyone who has been following my work on this wiki has probably realized, I favor longer pages that compile a lot of disparate information. The following pages were initiated by me and are still mostly my work. This may be because no one else is particularly interested in the topics, but, if so, that's fine with me. I'm certainly amusing myself.
- A (Spoiler Free) Guide for New Girl Genius Readers
- Double-page spreads in Girl Genius
- Continuity Errors in Girl Genius
I intend to polish up the last page in the list above, which still needs a lot of work and I have vague plans to revise the Girl Genius page, possibly moving some of the information from my Guide into it. I may also split off and expand a Publication History of Girl Genius page.
Finding the time to do any of this is another story, however!
