Triptych: Part II

Post by Athos »

Hah! Beat Chaos Priest!

Walter: Maggie, I am your father!
Maggie: What? No, that's impossible! You're younger than I am!

I swear Walter looks younger on the cover thing. Maybe because it's just been a while since he's been around or the light's hiding the wrinkles.

When I read the last panel here I was suddenly reminded of a certain fangirl rant many years before.

Huh, actually looking at them Willow's hair there looks a bit similar to Marian's here. Freaky.

Marian should be thankful no one's brought in an armored vehicle yet. If she thinks guns and bayonets are phallic...
Vampires can be exceedingly charming when they need to be. They will joke, cajole and flatter, and just when you think, "vampires aren't so bad," you've got a pair of fangs buried in your neck.

For those who still insist on treating vampirism as a romantic existence, consider the suicide note left behind by Jacob Drexel, member of a prominent Philadelphia family who was transformed in 1937. After Drexel leaped off the City Hall tower one snowy night, a suicide note was found that closed with the following lines: "I have been living in constant torment over the unspeakable acts I have committed, and yet I am powerless to stop committing them. May God forgive me."

It's for more spoilery reasons, I think.

Oh, crap. Alucard when he can be killed permanently vs. one of the few beings on the planet who can actually do so. This calls for an anti-hero team-up! I get the feeling AnderPlant will be fighting Jeeves rather than Alucard in this version.

If anything, he doesn't look YOUNG ENOUGH for said spoilery reasons.

Is it just me or doesn't that fellow up on the roof have a very close resemblance to Jeeves?

Arvanna, I was thinking the exact same thing. But, wasn't Jeeves a good guy?

I'm expecting Alucard and Anderson to point out they have been waiting years for this stupid fight. God they had to wait like 8 volumes in the manga for their rematch. Jeeves just let them have their fun.

Annnnd now the Wild Mass Guessing page gets another confirmation/Joss. Only 3 comics in, too-- you're too good to us, Erin.

(While I did think Jeeves actually being evil might lead to a tragic/angsty confrontation with Bertie, there was no way in hell such a thing would happen. It's a tad cliche.)

Everyone who figured it was an I-Jin, a free round for you all!
Gundam Wing has hot guys, kick-ass women and mechs. Hellsing has hot guys, kick-ass women and guns. ^_^ Ah, the joys of anime.

Wait, you mean people didn't think it was a clone? Even after Bertie confirmed the real Jeeves is in Heaven?

But I adore how utterly peeved Alucard looks in the last panel. He's been making due with inferior copied vampires, Anderson is only true worthy opponent, and now Millennium dangles another inferior copy in front of him. :p

Honestly, after that comic, I had switched to 'Master-regenerated-into-Jeeves' mode.

Easy now, that clone still has the memories and abilities of the old Jeeves, including any possible weakness Card could have. This could prove to be quite interesting...

Enter, Freak Vamp Walters! Watch as he prepares to avenge the death of his daughter. Squee as said daughter smacks him upside the head with a paper fan, and Anti-Jeeves is forced to take the field anyway.

Am I the only one who wants to see Anderson lay into the fake Jeeves a bit? I mean, he did get doubly burned here.

That may be true but Alucard would never believe it. Though with the vampires, he has had a point.

*Brakes screeching* Just realized something! Does someone absolutely have to be dead to make them an I-Jin!
