Sorry, Jesus; you may have a lot of followers but the author ain't one.

No, but we're still on the current arc.

Maybe Reseda will help Integra and Seras play house now and then as the oft-traveling "sister" or "auntie" figure?

(reads latest strip)

Let's just hope Seras doesn't misinterpret that licking part as an attack.

The world... may never know.

And while we're still on script... I hope Aziraphale's recovered from he and Crowley heaving that shelf out the window!

Its hard to feel something with this strip when Annie is sitting in a Peanuts style booth that reads the arms dealer is in. I should not feel happy about people making money off wars when you are trying to parallel actual events.

:D Oh Annie, you brilliant capitalist you. Looks like Patty mentioned a certain psychiatrist booth from her childhood.
I'm curious to know who Hobbes is nomming on. It's probably some random ghoul or Millennium flunky, but still... Curious to know.

Also, I now fully expect Calvin to encounter Hellsing when he's older and have him & Hobbes become vampire/monster hunters for the US equivalent of Hellsing. And to be supplied by Annie. And have epic adventures in the meantime, maybe even crossing paths with a certain newpundit and his vampire. And Calvin gets married to Susie and when he comes home from work she gets on his case about getting blood on his shirt while Hobbes greets their child and aaaaaggghhh my fangirl has gone off the leash.

Erin, I love you for making such epic crossovers.

I like how this meshes with the 9/11 remembrance date.

Plus, one more detail you forgot to mention: the child is Bonnie, from Toy Story 3.

True, true. But then, we know Anne's at least on the side of Hellsing and humanity. Better the money goes to feed the good guys than the possibility it can feed more like Millenium.

I always find it funny how Anne's capitalist streak gets amputated whenever Hollywood gets their hands on her. I'm really glad Erin kept true to the original. It makes her one of the most endearing crossover characters brought into the Shineverse. "Everything that's right with America" in a series focusing on the UK. :D

And so we're all getting close to the end to this long, happy sleigh-ride we all were on. :cry:

So are we going to see what happens thirty years in the future?

At first Timothy's dialogue confused me, but then I remembered the poor kid is only fluent in Italian & Latin and struggles with English & Japanese.

Y'know, the more I look at him, the more I think Timothy's ancestor should be Milo Thatch, from Disney's EPIC Atlantis: The Lost Empire. They just seem so adorkably similar. :D And with Kida as his ancestor, that could explain his darker skin/blond hair combo. Oh man, this sounds like it's a budding WMG.

I might hae missed something, but I'm still curious about Alucard turning up in Paris to frighten Rip. Probably that was Lupin in disguise, but just possibly....
