Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

In a World where the Industrial Revolution has turned into all-out war, Mad Scientists rule the world. Badly.

Girl Genius is a Web Comic (originally a print series) by Phil and Kaja Foglio, which has become one of the classics of the Steampunk (called Gaslamp Fantasy by the creators) genre.

The title character of the story is Miss Agatha Clay (Heterodyne), who begins as a young apprentice to a type of Mad Scientist known to the world as a "Spark". Her adventures span over 16 volumes so far.

Can be found at the Studio Foglio website, accessible through this elegant and finely-crafted link. An archive of the comics that were online as of May 4, 2016 can be found at the Library of Congress; accessible through this elegant and finely-crafted link.

Please note here, "We recommend Girl Genius for an audience of teens and up".

Was also the winner of the Graphic Story Hugo Award for three years running (2009-2011).

There are also novelizations of the comic's first two major arcs, called Agatha H and The Airship City and Agatha H and The Clockwork Princess respectively. A GURPS adaptation has been licensed, but seems to have descended into Development Hell - that book hasn't even been outlined as of November 2016, let alone written.

Look over the Girl Genius character sheet, or talk about the comic in our discussion thread for Girl Genius.
