Our Amazon.com box came yesterday--TWO volumes of Hellsing, plus Trigun and Berserk! Hallelujah!

I've only read the Hellsing so far, but although I have to keep these way out of the reach of kiddies, they are just fantastic. Very quirky and distinctive art, maybe slightly shojo-esque with the emphasis on hair and clothing, but in a beautifully creepy way.

Integra is a wonderful character. Powerful personality but still young and a little uncertain, very ambiguous about Alucard though she's willing to use him for her purposes. Do not ask me why people born in the traditionally male-oriented Japanese society can invent better women than the vast majority of English-speaking comics writers.

The sight of Alucard in civvies has to be seen to be believed--I WANT his necktie. And when he cuts loose on the cannon fodder, he's the scariest thing on two legs...or four, or infinite. The plot's rather convoluted, but you expect that of a Japanese vampire manga.

And I'm definitely getting used to reading right-to-left. It took a while, but I've got incentive!
