There's a secret organization somewhere in England created to defend the Queen and country from monsters of all sorts. Yes, it's hard to believe in this day and age....but really, isn't this the true age of monsters? Enter Hellsing, an agency, long in tooth, with the experience, know-how, and...er...equipment to handle the problems that arise when vampires, ghouls take on these dark forces. "What equipment?" you may say. How about another vampire, and a big pistol loaded with special silver bullets? That oughta do the trick. Hellsing the long-awaited manga is finally in America, thanks to Dark Horse Comics and the folks at Digital Manga, and you're gonna love it. Come get some smart-ass gore and action as only Japan seems to produce, in that crazy "non-Western" formats the kids seem to love. And nice and thick at over 200 pages!
* Dark Horse and Digital Manga bring an English translation of Hellsing to the US for the very first time!
* This version of Hellsing will be published in the original Japanese format!

The first thing I wanted to do after I read my first book, was to read the next, and the next and the next etc... When I finish the books, the only I probably wanna do is see the anime. And then read the books again... Hellsing is the greatest and most thrilling... EVER!

Hellsing! Way better than the anime, with even more ass kicking from Alucard and (sadly) more complaining from Victoria! Pick it up.

Ok..Let me begin by saying..Kohta Hirano ROCKS!!! Ok now that I have that out of the way. Firstly, the art. Fantastic, full of style and movement. And the fades into black work a treat with this. Being this the first book you don't really get many hints as to the main underlying story, but hey who cares, it's fun. And the violence..wow! While it won't make u squimish *me anyway* It's still very bloody, and it has a certain grace to it even (That might be over the top but u get the idea). To many it might "just be another Vampire comic" (I don't know why I did that I wasn't quoting anyone). It's saved by its great direction and plot. I won't reveal to much at this stage but once u read the other volumes you'll see why it's so "different" per say. It's only fall *of sorts* is that at times the art quality drops in some frames, like off proportions with faces and bodies (you'll see what I mean when u read it)Not to say that its any reason not to buy it, By all means get it. But in doing so you'll need to get the other volumes to find it a truly satisfying manga. Partcularly near the later volumes when the plot starts to steam roll and the things start getting very interesting. But I'll say no more... Oh and BUY IT!! (please)

My other idolized manga-ka, Kohta Hirano! I'm not too pleased that dark horse is doing Hellsing or TriGun *sorry guys* I'd rather have Tokyo Pop, but oh well. First thing first, it's not a %$#@ pistol, it's a semi-automatic Joshua Cassul. There is a distinct difference, besides, the Cassull is too BIG to be related to any real pistol out there, so I may as well drop this argument. But besides that glitch, Kohta's work is amazing! ^^He ranks up there with Nightow's work, and has after his first issue/book gotten very much away from the "steriotypical" manga drawing style. And Hellsing is so bloody awesome like you people wouldn't even fathom.And the blood looks nice.
