11/4/04: Lime from Saber Marionette J, Sailor Chibi Moon, and Integra. (I had a red pen out at the time, so I added a bit of spot-coloring.

You’ve probably… Continue reading The Year In Doodles
She’s the reclusive, mysterious Guardian of Time (unaffiliated with TIME or AOL Time Warner), who almost never speaks to those of us with a finite existence. TIME’s Erin Ptah got an exclusive peek into her views on mortality, the current temporal crisis, and her favorite teas.

It should be noted that, while I use the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen design for Mina Harker, Shine does not take place in the Leagueverse. (There would be continuity issues.)

Caution: The upcoming week of strips deals with the murder of Seras’ parents. (Nothing new for readers of the Hellsing manga, but it’s a new level of pain as far as Shine is concerned.) If you’d like to miss it, skip forward to next Sunday. Pretty Knight Sailor Hellsing. Come for the delicious crack; stay… Continue reading Sailor Hellsing Promo
