    Default Girl Genius XXVIII: Dancink! Ve is here for de dancink!

    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    Mirror of the comic found on LiveJournal (No longer being updated as of Mid-May, 2017)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 it just me, or is Bang posing like she's part of the exhibition?
    It almost looks like she took the place of a Bangladesh DuPree sculpture that should actually stand there.

    Well, she did disguise herself as a regular pirate when she was sneaking in on the Mopey Tortoise. It could just be that Queen's Privateers have to put in a little time in the museum when they're in port.

    Perhaps she has realised how empty her life will be after her revenge quest, and is setting up another ongoing interest for the public good.

    Or perhaps I need some sleep. That sounds more likley.

    If I had to guess, she's trying to stalk Zeetha and learn more about her habits, and failing. Because, well, Bangladesh Dupree.

    Well... she would make a wonderful Dread Pirate Roberts - it's a common career after such a long time spent in revenge business.

    I'm pretty sure Bang is planning on some other filling with Vole once the revenge thing is out of the way.

    Gil sounds like so many little brothers I've heard yelling at the big sister. Those really are found family, even if they'd probably rather be eaten by rabid mimmoths than admit it.

    For an absolutely insane murderous psychopath, Bang is an amazingly likeable character.

    Also, Tarvek, you've been stabbed how many times now? You need to bump up your con score or something if that's enough to knock you flat.

    Who was asking for Buck Godot earlier? Looks like the PDFs have just been added to goodies for the Rain Games Girl Genius game Kickstarter, at the $30 backer mark - along with Girl Genius Volume 1-20 PDFs.
    I'm pretty much the opposite of concise. If I fail to get to the point, please ask me and I'm happy to (attempt to) clarify.

    Bang is a Axe Crazy Genki Girl who is always Affably Evil. Considering that Bang knows she has to control herself a bit while in England it seems that there has been some kind arrangement made and Bang probably wouldn't go around slaughtering English crews. And really wouldn't go after Crown expeditions like the one that found Skif.

    You know, we never really did find out why some of the conspirators wanted to know Skif's location.

    I guess that big old Chekov's Cannon last page still has to fire.

    So either Bang really likes that particular makeup, or someone really did very seriously cut her throat once.

    I wonder who.

    Yes, Bang is clearly not acting when she acts like a sociopath.
    Gil is embarrassed, but Agatha is not having it. In fact, I'd say Agatha is already starting to suspect something.
    And I'll reiterate - Tarvek is a master of sneaky. Unless Bang has gotten help from someone on Tarvek's level, he's going to spot her plot any minute now.
    Madwa or Grandma. Or Albia, of course, but I think Albia would have strong opinions about someone offing a member of the Skifander royal family in England. In fact, I think Bang has to get Zeetha out of England if she wants to kill her and live.

    Do you have a link? I checked the Kickstarter page and I didn't see any mention of PDFs for either Buck Godot or Girl Genius at any of the tier levels.

    How true. It is inconcievable that I forgot this.

    And Bang getting sentimental? That doesn't happen often.

    Bang knows this group very well, particularly Gil. She knows attempts at kidnapping or an ambush would most likely result in her having to fight everyone, and losing badly. No, I'm thinking she's going through all this trouble to make her move above the board, get the Empires official pirate guild on her side and then use their rules to get Zeetha into a regulated and 'fair' (for pirates anyway) 1 on 1 combat with no outside interference allowed. That would be her best shot.

    I like that theory!

    It's not like she couldn't challenge Zeetha directly, but this would spike Gil trying to stop things. Directly, at least.

    Since it's gone after she stabs Tarvek, I assume that it's actually a pirate game akin to tag, but called "stab", where the scar is passed on to the one you stabbed.

    That would mean someone walked up to Bang and poked her with a pointy stick.
    If they survived I wanna meet them.
