Hellsing in Shakespeare Quotes published on No Comments on Hellsing in Shakespeare Quotes

Drew the first version of this strip more than a year before. The punchline was the same, but it was just a bunch of talking heads. This time around I had a little help on the layouts from “Wally Wood’s 22 Panels That Always Work!!” (Google it.) Needless to say, this one is far more interesting.

And Shine Heave Now presents: An Alucard-Integra conversation entirely in Shakespeare quotes!

(Also, an experiment with drawing in pen.)

Alucard: Lord, what fools these mortals be!

Why are your bodies soft and weak and small, unapt to toil and trouble in this world?

Integra: Ungrateful, savage, and inhuman creature!

Alucard: Come, come, you wasp; in faith, you are too angry.

Integra: If I be waspish, best beware my sting.

Alucard (thinking): There is no following her in this fierce vein.

Alucard: I pray thee, gentle mortal, sing again.

Integra: My tablets! Quick, my tablets! ‘Tis meet that I put it down that one may smile, and smile, and be a villain!

Alucard: That’s not how the line in Hamlet goes.

Integra: Isn’t it?

Alucard: No…that’s the way Jonathan Harker misquoted it in his diary in Dracula.

Integra: That explains why I remember it that way. I reread Dracula so often.

Alucard: My mistress with a monster is in love?

See how like a maid she blushes here!

Integra: Never did mockers waste more idle breath.

I charge thee, hence, and do not haunt me thus.
