Start from the beginning. It's a complex and multi-layered story, and you really don't want to miss pieces. (It's also hilarious.)

Phil started in print and moved online to broaden his audience. He commented that his art changed in that he did have to adjust his pacing: in an online strip, there needs to be a "payoff on every page" to hold the audience attention.

Edit: Just to clarify, Phil began his career as a cartoonist in print, several decades ago. Girl Genius has been online since its inception.)

Some friends have the complete run of Girl Genius print collections. I got a chance to read them straight through on a visit, and it was even more effective than reading the thrice-weekly web updates.
