Waiting for Hellsing

Waiting for Hellsing

I can tell that I ought to be grading papers because I find myself reading at breakneck speed. I got Hellsing 6 and 7 at Schuler’s the other day but they didn’t have vol 8. I charged through Hellsing 6 and 7 — when is Alucard going to show back up! — and now I’m […]

Hellsing by Kohta Hirano

Hellsing by Kohta Hirano

I am smitten. I have a new favorite vampire. The Hellsing manga series is fabulous. My first manga, by the way. It has actually been harder than I thought to re-train my eyes to read right to left. I read the panels right to left ok but I keep wanting to read the dialogue from […]
