Cameo: Hello Kitty, on the slippers.

Our next tale returns us to the secret base of the Letzte Battalion, where no one is who they appear to be. In fact, at the moment that’s literally true, because…

…sorry, was I saying something?

*Recovers from fanboyish squealing*

Okay, this is the plot I thought it was. We should get to see a little device I thought of for the Doc to invent in Millennium’s quest to make Hellsing’s lives miserable. (The Doc is a great character to write for; mad scientists are awesome plot devices since they can literally invent anything.)

Lots of gratuitous catboy scenes ahead! (I like catboys, almost as much as catgirls and glasses.)

es! Bring on the mad devices! Each with it’s own remote control. Gee, I hope he doesn’t get the remotes mixed up or anything… 🙂

Yay! More Millennium!!!

I hope we see a lot of the Major. He’s just too insane to not be funny, in a scary, sad sort of way.

I can see Doc as being the type of guy to have a remote for everything…including the kitchen sink.

I look forward to seeing what happens in this storyline. I am surprised that others had also suggested this type of storyline.

As I told Erin when I pitched it a few months back, every comic usually has a story like this. The trick is to keep it short and interesting because it is so commonly used.

Okay, let’s get something straight.

Xu pitched the idea of body-swapping as a small part of a larger arc. Frey actually suggested the idea earlier, as a longer standalone storyline. And a quick glance at my email reveals that people have mentioned switching bodies as early as 2004.

Furthermore, almost all of the actual material – the events, the punch lines, the specifics of who gets switched with who, not to mention the art and writing – come directly from me. This isn’t one of those storylines where I’ve hammered out detailed outlines (as with Shine Or Die) or bounced dialog back and forth (as with A Lovely Trick) with a collaborator. Aside from the premise and a few specific gags that Frey sent me, this story is mine.

Kindly move beyond the issue of who had which ideas and just enjoy the cute catboys.

Thank you.

hehe, hello kitty slippers ^.^

We get more than one? 😀

Oh, by the way, I just thought I’d mention I had an idea once for a Gummi Bears cartoon where they swap bodies… 😈

Sorry about that. I was not trying to imply this story arc was “mine.”

My main point to Frey was addressing his surprise that others had thought of an idea along these lines. I, for one, think it’d pretty normal that multiple people would think of this idea since it’s a commonly used motif. That’s all I was getting at.

Moving on…

I showed the comic to a few friends. All of them love the Schroe. So cute catboys are definitely a good way to boost readership! 😀

Same here.

I was at my friend Bill’s house and his dad has no less than 4 different remotes for the TV and stereo system, all of which are actually used regularly. He also has a PC hooked up to the TV as a monitor. nothing in that house is easy to turn on.

also, Schro’s slipper=adorable
