    Default Girl Genius XVI: The Wrath of Klaus

    Welcome to another installment of the Girl Genius Thread!

    Many elegant and finely-crafted links follow:

    Links to Previous Threads


    Comic Links
    Link to current comic and link to the beginning of the strip. (Updates MWF at or sometime after Midnight [Eastern Time])
    The Continuing Adventures of Othar Tryggvassen, Gentleman Adventurer! (now being updated again after a long hiatius)
    A compilation (and much easier to read if you're just catching up) of the entries 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).
    Mirror of the comic found on LiveJournal (Often will update before the main page is updated, so beware of spoilers)
    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)

    Spoiler: Information About 'The Sneaky Gate'
    Show
    The 'Sneaky Gate', named from this hidden gate in comic, was a name for viewing new comics early. However the comic, due to various reasons, is currently either not being updated early or is inaccessible before it goes live. If it should ever become available early again, here is the old information about being Sneaky:

    <NOTE: Remember, if you're going to discuss the new comic, put it in spoiler boxes until the release time (12am EST).>

    Sneaky gating 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!

    Sneaky gate hasn't worked in over a year at this point, is there any point in continuing to give the instructions?

    Probably not (as I understand it, they now have an intern uploading things instead of doing it themselves ahead of time). I was thinking of axing it.

    Perhaps I should put it in spoiler bars under a heading of: If the Sneaky Gate Ever Returns.

    ETA::: Went ahead and re-worded the section to better reflect the current reality and then threw it behind Spoiler Bars.

    GW

    Any thoughts on whether Klaus used the same technology to download/copy his consciousness into Bohrlaika?
    @Grey_wolf, hmm, I now think that we will have multiple Klaus copies to match the multiple copies of Lucrezia that are running around. Plus Klaus/Gil is wielding Bohrlaika's sword in Friday's comic.

    We also now know why Gil hasn't been sleeping. The same thing happened to Agatha in Sturmhalten when Lucrezia's consciousness was first transferred. Every time Agatha would fall asleep, Lucrezia would take over (and vice versa). I am simply stunned at the Foglios ability to keep continuity over ten years worth of comics.

    That's what I'm afraid of as well. We'll have three copies of Klaus, Lucrezia, and someone else for a good measure, running around eventually.

    So does this mean that at some point we'll see Lucrezia in her daughter's body have a conversation with Klaus in his son's body?

    We're hoping for less 'conversation' and more 'hot makeouts', but conversation will suffice.

    Reminds me of this comic... Yeah, that's going to happen over Agatha's and Gil's dead bodies.

    That was one of my favorite comics. I wonder how comfortable would Klaus be kissing Lu while his son is there?

    (leaving aside the idea of Klaus liking the idea of kissing her in the first place - eeny meeny obstacles like that shouldn't get in the way of shipping!)
