Well, it DID say Limited Release complete. And I'm eager to see Hellsing's reactions to WHY Yomiko burned the library

Good call - there is indeed a new storyline on the way. Even though it continues the conversations of the earlier one, the focus shifts from flashback to present, where loyalties are shifting...

Heeeeeee!!!!! (claps)

The main ROD plotline! HURRAH! But that means that some of the characters won't be showing up (i.e., Ridley), but that's okay, because other characters probably will! Do we get to see Wendy?

Aziraphale knew he had to keep the scroll away from the British Library. That's all I'll say for now ^_~

Since this is from OVA/anime continuity, Ridley and the other manga-only characters may never appear. Wendy, on the other hand, definitely exists in the Shineverse, so she'll definitely be showing up eventually...

I guess this arc will have to take the place of Shine or Die 2. Oh, well. Any reason to get Erin to draw Yomiko is a good one.

AAAAAH OMG That is perfect. Why didn't I think of that?

Oh, I forgot about this idea. Major as a fanboy for War and as a fanboy for Integra both made sense to me. I even imagined his cyborg body being steered by a little fanboy version of him, ala some of the aliens in Men in Black.

(reads latest strip)

To tell the truth, I'm not surprised that the Major WOULD show-up clinging to War's wrist.

But in all seriousness, I suppose that this is the new thread. So naturally, I would like to hear why Yumiko would set the British Library aflame.

That is one of the best ideas ever. :D :D :D

I like the way Famine and War look.

Death of Endless?

As much as I love seeing her (which is strange, in a way, considering what she is. But I can't deny it, she's so damn cheery I just love seeing her) I'm not sure she would be the appropriate Death for this, unless this is just a gag strip. She has always said that she is not something that takes sides or goes out with a will to spread death. She just IS. No more, no less. The very act of Death, not simply an incarnation. So it would seem strange that she would meet up with the Horsemen with the intention of willfully spreading death. She is death, she just happens. She has no agenda.

Well, my rant is done, and it was probably very confusing. The God of Writing (One of several) that is NEIL GAIMAN (Caps for respect) made those seven entities very hard to describe in language and words, even if you get the concept of them, just a little, in your head. So I probably stumbled a bit. Hope it was clear enough.

That...was adorable. :D And yay! It was the REAL Death! And since it's Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, it's still part of the continuity! Hooray~!

-raises hand- I thought the "Death" in Good Omens was a totally different one than the one in Discworld or Sandman. I'm guessing it's easier to make it the Perky Goth than making a skeleton (I tried. it's time consuming and hard-to-do from memory if you don't know the "Bones" Song.)

It's implied the Death in Good Omens is Discworld Death's boss from Reaper Man.

You mean the guy who's as large as the sky? o.o He must've watched Joan of Arcadia (because in that series, God would appear in different forms from what I've heard.)

Right. They have the same name, I believe.

Yep. Both of 'em are "Azrael". I kind've thought that the semi-us world would have their own Death (But seeing as we have issues agreeing on anything, I guess Azrael just said "forget it." and worked on shrinking.)

Re: Comments related to Death of the Endless.

Much as I love her, my favorite endless easily has to be Destruction. Never mind the fact that with the exception of our different colors of hair and facial hair we look alike....he's fun is all. But then again I guess that reflects his nature as one of the endless.
