a wonderful resource (and I say that as someone who not only spends much
time consulting it, but also as a contributor), but it's not the same as
having a source direct from the authors.
I doubt the Foglios have given up on updating the cast list, however; I'm
sure it is on their to-do list. I think the problem is that they are
spreading themselves rather thin these days. Not only do they have to do
all the work involved in getting a full page of the comic out three times a
week, but they have to manage their business, look after their kids and
their house, and write their third Girl Genius novel (with more to come).
In addition, they post blog entries and attend conventions. Kaja is also
planning to do a major overhaul of the web site and she (presumably) is
still working on the GG role-playing game. Phil has to finish up the "Sail
your (Air)ship" drawings for those who pre-ordered volume 11 with that as a
premium, and he has obligated himself to do the art for several more "paper
dolls" for the Girl Genius app, and whatever he has to contribute for the
Rats of Mechanicsburg game. Plus, both of them have promised to contribute
voice recordings for Rats. And recently Phil has stated that they are
planning a Kickstarter campaign to reprint the GG books, which will
involved extra rewards, which he and Kaja will have to create. No doubt
there are things I've missed, as well.
This is not intended as either an excuse or a criticism, but it is no
wonder that the GG cast list has fallen by the wayside and that the GG web
site navigation menu hasn't been updated in months.

- Sorry - sort of - for reviving an old thread; it was the first to show up in my search. When I look at:
Girl Genius Online Comics!
the active links at the top for the cast of each chapter starts with "Seven" and go to "Nine". I thought for sure that I had see "One" through "Six" active in the past. Has the task of keeping the historical catalog been moved - tacitly or otherwise - to the wiki? Seems unfortunate if so.
Or did some files get deleted that were not backed up, leaving the Profs. Foglio in their own mad places?
