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.

"It's amazing, and we sometimes use it to look things up when we're in a hurry."

Professoressa Kaja Foglio[1]

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.[2]

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.

If you are new to Girl Genius you may find this brief description to be helpful. There is also a page that will help you read the story in print.


The Kickstarter for The Girl Genius GURPS RPG book funded, with 2,915 backers pledging $172,756. The sole stretch goal was already been met, meaning an exclusive eight-page comic by Phil and Kaja Foglio, with art by Phil and color by Cheyenne Wright, will be included, whether you pledged for the print book or PDF edition.

You can also get a pre-release version of the GG GURPS RPG PDF edition immediately from Warehouse 23 (the Steve Jackson Games' store) or DriveThruRPG. After the Kickstarter successfully concludes, which is a forgone outcome at this point, you will automatically receive an updated PDF which includes the exclusive comic.

The Kickstarter for a new video game based on Agatha's adventures in Castle Heterodyne from indie developer Rain Games, makers of Teslagrad has successfully funded and the campaign has ended. The Kickstarter raised $256,510, 128% of its $200,000 goal. The extra funds mean that five stretch goals were reached, allowing the addition of Zeetha, Violetta, Othar and Sanaa, Theo and Sleipnir, and Krosp to the game as nonplayer characters.

The Kickstarter for Sparks and Monsters (book 6 of the Second Journey and nineteenth volume overall) has successfully funded with the second highest number of pledges of any of the Girl Genius graphic novel Kickstarters.

Check the bottom of new pages posted to the Girl Genius website or the Girl Genius FaceBook page for more up-to-date "Studio News" about the current activities of Studio Foglio.

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.
