Good Books

Postby Chaos Priest on Mon Dec 01, 2008 5:55 pm

Seriously, am I the first to realize the last strip said "Limited Release Complete"? Oh well, new topic for the new storyline!

I kinda wonder what's going through Integra's head right now. Yomiko was able to hold off Alucard after all (at least for a little while anyway...) so she is definitely a possible threat, but on the other hand she was pretty helpful to Hellsing up until this point, so while Integra might have to admit that it's possible Yomiko is now the enemy she may not want to believe it. But then, could you consider just how frightening a Paper Master with a freak chip would be?

...
I can't stand how absolutely adorable Schroe is XD And you just know that under his facade of the "good kitty" he's mentally laughing at the predicament they're in now and thinking of all kinds of snarky comments he'd love to say.

I'm curious what Erin's going to do with the crossover. Not sure if it'll have Donnie or Yomiko in the Agent Paper role (Agent Paper is a title passed down from one paper master to another through the decades). Hopefully we'll get some nice characterization from it.

Okay, I'm in. I still think Yomiko will somehow contact Integra and let her know what happened.

This looks like an interesting storyline. Being commander of Hellsing sure has nice perks. Pretty sure not everyone gets a wax-sealed overdue notice from the British Library...or gets to borrow from them at all, for that matter.

Also, Colbert talking about gay marriage and a picture of Jon Stewart pops up. I'm sure someone out there got screenshots.

Hate to think of the late fees the British Library charges for overdues.

Knowing Integra, it would've been a rare book dealing with the habits of vampires.

True, but I'd LOVE to see the look of mortification on Integra's face if it's some bodice-ripper or something.

Naw, it would better if she had something to really be embarrassed about.

Young Integra: Oooooh, Lestat...
Alucard: My my, master. Such an interesting book you're reading.
Young Integra: Eep!

Y'know, I recall Erin saying the "Shine or Die" crossover was originally going to start out with Joker commissioning Yomiko-chan to go get an overdue copy of Dracula from the Hellsing mansion. The trouble was, Integra would already have a copy, so the beginning was rejected. Could this be....that? ^_^

But didn't Erin point out that Integra would have her own copy? And honestly, I'd think it'd be a family heirloom.

Though the thought of Integra borrowing it, and then buying/bartering for it isn't impossible.

Now I see where this is going. I wonder if this was Crowley's way of playing a practical joke on his friend. I'm curious to see how Erin draws Donnie.

I wouldn't think so. Probably just newly released, or something.

It's interesting to see what'll happen. I knew nothing of Jeeves&Wooster or Maria-sama ga Miteru, fairly kept away from Utena (but knew some), only know Yomiko Readman's powers/traits and Robin's power/traits, and know nothing of Good Omens.

In other words, these recent crossovers have had me in the dark because I barely know the characters and background.

hey, why does the story line menu on the front page still say "Isn't that a little bit Dangerous Jeeves?"?
Finally, I remember to do a signature! Oh the wonder! Oh the happiness! ... I don't even have a snappy remark to make.

D: I am in DESPAIR! The lack of a snappy remark for my signature has left me in despair!
