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 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.
