I wonder if the revelation of the big guns will be the next Sunday comic. Probably?

Ooooooh... nice job with panel 2! By the way, did you make Zorin's tattoo a news clipping in that panel? I can't make out much of it, but I can see what I think is "FREE(?) SINCE 2009 PRESIDENT BUSH HAVE ANO..."

Excellent catch! :D

The text isn't so much an article as it is strings of words all smushed together. But they do have a theme. Cookies to anyone who figures out what it is...

Hmm... let's see. Zorin's power is that of illusion. For that matter many of those illusions seem to be highly traumatic ones. What text I could make out seems to have to do with the right wing in the US. Hellsing is hardly the only fandom Erin follows, as evidenced by the large amounts of Daily Show & Colbert Report fanart she's drawn so I'm going to guess...

Zorin's tattoos are full of Truthiness! And that's a conclusion I reached by listening to my gut!

I wonder if Erin is using the eye on Zorin's hand to draw parallels between her and Roger from CRFH (the way she talked to it in the last panel is something Roger might do).

Most excellent!

To be specific, they're all words/phrases that have appeared in the TCR opening credits. On her arm:
COLMES-FREE SINCE 2009
PRESIDENT BUSH HAVE A HOTDOG WITH ME
APPLEPIOUS

And on her face:
FUNDIT
LINCOLNISH
FREEM

Somehow, I've got this bad feeling this is going to lead-up to some bawdy poem!

yes seras: off the ballon with the bombs on it. THEN tear the rest of their soldiers to bits and pieces. <3

also?
love the "they're bombing MY city" bit. i dunno, it just seems to fit. she was a police officer: protecting the people. and now shes fighting for hellsing, protecting london. it fits.


and is pip fighting, or just doing coordination? looks like he doing coord in integra's place. *kinda hopes for the latter, as it lessens the chance of pip getting offed*

geh, my memories of this part in the manga are so FUZZY. i really needta pick it up at the library again.

Pip's on the intercom, as per the manga. He's leading from the HQ, which is the smart thing to do.

I can completely understand Seras' feelings, though.

I keep all my important stuff in that city! Like me! And everything around me that I hold dear! And me!

And this is why this pairing is so awesome/I ship it so much. Go Pip & Seras! :D
Gundam Wing has hot guys, kick-ass women and mechs. Hellsing has hot guys, kick-ass women and guns. ^_^ Ah, the joys of anime.

ahhh. mmk. its been ages since i read hellsing, since i read it at the library. really needta pick it up again.
maybe when im done with sabriel.....

while i do not find myself able to identify with seras love of her home (just never been able to due to circumstances.) i DO understand why. its her home, and she's been protecting it all her adult life, and now undead life. i tihnk her father was a police officer to, wasnt he?
also? yeah, simply reminds me of some of that vampire possessiveness.

shutting up now ^^
