First Time Reading Dracula

First Time Reading Dracula published on No Comments on First Time Reading Dracula

Corrections from The Future: Integra is Abraham Van Helsing’s granddaughter, not great-granddaughter; and the Hellsing manga was later identified as taking place in 1999. Shine, however, begins in 1997. Ooooooooooooooo…… No, Jonathan, go back to your room! Good thing Mina never got to see the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. It used her name but it… Continue reading First Time Reading Dracula

All the fangirls and fanboys in the final panel are friends of mine. – And now for something completely different… – Today’s karaoke will be a rather unusual one. – We’re singing the real lyrics, not a parody. – Unfortunately, we have no idea who wrote this song, so we can’t give them credit… –… Continue reading Fangirl Karaoke: Happy Birthday

Entirely true story. So this is what my mother said while we were watching Hellsing… Mom: Oh no, Integra’s a bad role model…she smokes. Erin: Don’t worry, Mom…until I’m in charge of a secret vampire-hunting organization, I won’t start smoking. Mom: Oh. Okay. Erin (thinking): Besides…she can quit any time.

Fangirls at Thanksgiving… Erin: And I’m thankful for Sir Integra Wingates Hellsing! Mom: She’s not real. [This is my mom. She’s very much a literalist.] Erin: Well then, can I be thankful for Kouta Hirano? He’s real. Mom: I guess so. Why? Erin: Because he created Sir Integra Wingates Hellsing! Mom: I give up.

This one gets really long, so the complete lyrics have their own page. Erin: Actually, change of plans: You guys won’t get all the Sunday Editions anymore. Fanboy: Why not? Are you out of karaoke ideas? Erin: Well, no; I still have a list of songs I want to parody. But I have an even… Continue reading Fangirl Karaoke: The Song That Never Ends

Give Blood

Mom: You realize, of course, Erin, that the blood you donate will go to surgeries and the like. It won’t go to Alucard. Erin: It won’t?!? All right, people, here’s the deal. We’re in the middle of a nationwide blood shortage. I’m finally old enough to donate, so I’m giving blood for the first time… Continue reading Give Blood

When Fangirls Dream: Ready Set Glow

When Fangirls Dream: Ready Set Glow published on No Comments on When Fangirls Dream: Ready Set Glow

Note from The Future: Over 10 years later, and we still get girl characters with boyish names to indicate that they’re unique and offbeat…but somehow, always still safely within the bounds of conventional gender expression. Rowdy butches with crew cuts in flannel and leather, with or without “girly” names, are mysteriously harder to find! Still… Continue reading When Fangirls Dream: Ready Set Glow

Doujinshi-Ka’s Inbox: Is Alucard a virgin? published on No Comments on Doujinshi-Ka’s Inbox: Is Alucard a virgin?

Erin: I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while — you know, answering questions from my email in the comic. So here’s the first one… Email: According to Hellsing philosophy, a person *must* be a virgin in order to become a vampire, right? And it seems pretty clear that Alucard is Dracula is… Continue reading Doujinshi-Ka’s Inbox: Is Alucard a virgin?
