    Default Girl Genius XXII: Paris Needs Pants

    It is a world ruled by Mad Science! Things happen. Usually, they happen to other people. This is entertainment. That's when the front door gets blown in- And you belatedly realize that, once again, you are doomed to be the entertainment in another exciting installment of: GIRL GENIUS!

    Many elegant, finely-crafted, and vintage links follow:

    Links to Previous Threads


    Comic Links
    Link to current comic and link to the beginning of the strip. (Updates MWF, usually after Midnight [Eastern Time])
    The Continuing Adventures of Othar Tryggvassen, Gentleman Adventurer! (back on hiatus, may update in the future)
    A compilation (and much easier to read if you're just catching up) of the first three chapters can be found here at the GG website.
    And if one goes to snapbird.org and types in "Othar" in the 'Who?' field, all of Othar's adventures can be read on one page (albiet in reverse order of posting - Now must have a Twitter account to use).
    Mirror of the comic found on LiveJournal (No longer being updated as of Mid-May, 2017)
    Mirror of the comic found on Facebook (Will occasionally have Girl Genius related news)
    And one can find mirrors of Girl Genius on deviantArt as well. (Occasionally Kaja will put up or link to interesting GG related art that is found on dA)

    Reference Links
    Wiki Project devoted to to Girl Genius
    Wikipedia entry on Girl Genius.
    TV Tropes page on Girl Genius.
    The Secret Blueprints (NOTE: Contains background information on the GG Universe, so it should probably be read after "catching up" to the newest comic, as it contains many spoilers.)

    Social Media and News Links
    Phil Foglio's new Wordpress art, news, and blogging website.
    Kaja Foglio's LJ Page and Studio Foglio News LJ Page (Not currently being updated)
    Kaja & Phil's Personal Facebook Page (Not currently being updated)
    A twitter account that basically is a catch-all feed for Girl Genius related news.
    Cheyenne Wright's Twitter and LiveJournal Accounts (The colorist's twitter and LJ pages)
    And finally,
    Phil's old LJ page. (Occasionally contains crossposts from the Wordpress website)

    ====

    Q: What is this "Sneaky Gate" y'alls go on about?

    Sneaky gate: Named from this hidden gate in comic, it has become a name for viewing new comics early. Remember, if you're going to discuss the new comic, put it in spoiler boxes until the release time (12am EST).

    Sneaky Gate 101:
    1. Right click the comic image.
    2. Select view image or copy paste the image location into the address bar.
    3. Modify the date to be the day you're trying to look at. (ex. 20120111 -> 20120113)
    4. Go to the modified url.
    5. Be disappointed when there's no early comic to read.
    6. Alternately, enjoy the comic!

    Is Red Monocle someone I should remember?
    He seems to be funny if ge thinks the Library could have stopped the Heterodyne without sustaining inacceptable losses.
    All the beautiful books that would have been destroyed...

    That and the wonderful summary of Agatha's accomblishments in the City of Light so far are exellent reasons why the librarians „let“ her leave.

    He's the head of security there. He had a fit when Agatha first arrived, and now he's having a fit because she's left. I suspect it is his position that she should have never been let in, in the first place.

    I see Aldin is wearing clothes again.

    No mention yet of whatever it was he and Larana went to such pains to get. Maybe it's too secret for the head of security.

    I think the sepia tone is a "flashback" by the Lady Curator.
    I don't recall seeing the guy, evidently a member of the library staff since he calls them "our secrets", who dislikes Agatha so.

    He has a very "I set up the Lord High Conservator to be killed and I'm working for someone, possibly Grandma Sturmvaraous" vibe to me.

    And as per usual agatha leaves behind strongly split opinions because she does good work, but trouble is always around her.

    It's almost as though she's the protagonist in an adventure story.

    Agatha is in roughly the same position as Jessica in "Murder, She Wrote" - she never murders anyone, but everywhere she goes, death follows.

    You can make a better argument for Jessica Fletcher being the murderer, and the criminal-of-the-week being a patsy, than you can that she just happens to be around for all those murders. Plus, Cabot Cove has a per capita murder rate that makes the Mexican Drug War look sedate.

    Anyone else expecting a newly minted wasp eater to suddenly show up and go "SHREEEEE!!!" at that guy?

    Agatha's didn't react to him. He could have been wasped since then, but I don't particularly expect it.

    To be fair, he's looking at a Slaver Wasp Engine from about 10 inches away in the last panel.

    Yeah, but he would have been safe enough if Larana hadn't smacked the globe down on its "Activate" button.

    While he's obviously concerned about security, I don't think at any point it's said it's officially his job.

    I do hope this is where we learn what Aldin and Larana were looking for in the crypts.

    Yes, he is just referred to as the "Deputy Archivist," AFAIK.

    Me, too, in part because that led to Jiminez doubting Larana's love for him. Some readers complained that the romantic subplot seemed fake and superfluous. I wasn't bothered that much, but I would like to see it supported better.

    It looks like a Big Reveal coming tomorrow when we finally learn what Aldin got. But probably not what it does.

    And that's a fair summery of how things have hit the fan. Although technically, Agatha / Lucrezia ARE responsible for a lot of it.

    It looks like a hiatus/intemission/side story coming.. We do know that Aldin got the Heart of the Muse, but don't know what it is/does.

    As the Kickstarter has already tripled it's goal amount of $50,000, playing a new video game may be exactly what Katja plans on doing for the next week or so.

    It looks as though the Heart of the Muse is either above them, or really big. But it was something that could be casually picked up, so I'm guessing it floats due to its Immense Sparky Power that is going to cause Something to Happen.

    I'd guess it's been plugged into/is powering some larger structure or object.

    If you are referring to the extra panels at the bottom, they are old. They are originally from Revenge of the Weasel Queen. It can be a lot of fun when Kaja publishes alternate versions of panels.

    I would guess the Lord High Conservator, top leader of the Library, is who she's referring to.

    The Muse of Vengeance
    Even without the name activating that thing seems like a bad idea.
    That design promises she will leave nothing in her wake.

    If she is activated I would recommend some activity that keeps you far away and safe, library staff.
    Something like a expedition to the Americas.

    Looking at the page number (#120) and the very ominous, and Cliffhangery end to this, is this the end of Book 4?

    Did Gil have any story time at all in this volume? I can't remember seeing him for ages.

    So, that needs a label that says "Break glass in case of very, very, very serious emergency".
    Also, the Library has not yet learned the Lord High Conservator is dead at the hands of Sturmvaraous Smoke Knights, working for Grandma.
