Hellsing Volume 3 review

Hellsing comic

VAMPIRES! NAZIS! BLOODSHED! ACTION! Add to that a healthy helping of sleek style and an exotic locale, and you have Hellsing Vol. 3. Our scant troop of vampire-killing vampires and mercenaries are planning a little trip overseas… to beautiful South America, in search of the elusive Millennium Project, and old Nazi organization with very secretive origins. It’s the start of a war, and only time will show how nasty this war will become. But one thing’s for sure, the vampire Alucard will make sure it gets off to a fitting start.

Marvel comics Vampire news

Readers curious as to what’s in store with the spoilerific title and cover of Marvel Comics upcoming “Death of Dracula” one-shot can rest easy about some of the pieces of the puzzle as Vice-President Executive Editor Tom Brevoort promises “It’s no big surprise that he dies. That’s not the shocking climax of the first issue…it’s the shocking beginning.”

Brevoort and fellow VP Executive Editor Axel Alonso teamed with “Death of Dracula” and upcoming “X-Men” writer Victor Gischler for a conference call with members of the press, and CBR News was on hand to ask about the fallout from the “shocking beginning” set for the June 30 one-shot (drawn by Giuseppe Camuncoli) as well as the “Curse of the Mutants” event which will start in “X-Men” #1 in July by Gischler and Paco Medina and support a number of spinoff titles yet to be announced. “We’re looking to explain and organize the vampire universe for future use,” Alonso explained. “Just like we redesign characters and redesign teams, there’s a lot of questions about vampires around the globe – the level of unification, who they are, what the leadership is, who’s at the top of the pyramid. We’re looking to answer that in this one-shot, and of course the inciting incident is the death of Dracula. The big question is: who fills that power vacuum and why? What’s their agenda and what do they do?

Spitfire comic news

Spitfire vampire
Lady Jacqueline Falsworth-Crichton is part of one of the oldest heroic legacies in the Marvel Universe. Her father, James Montgomery Falsworth, became one of England’s premier costumed champions when he donned the costume of Union Jack during World War I. During World War II, her brother got into the hero business when he took up the mantle of Union Jack as well. Jacqueline joined the family business later in the same war when a blood transfusion from the original android Human Torch endowed her with superhuman speed. Donning a mask and costume, she became the hero known as Spitfire. Decades later, her super speed had faded and she retired from crime fighting, but a serious injury led to her receiving a second transfusion from the original Human Torch, a transfusion that not only gave her back her powers but restored her youth. She returned to crime fighting and recently became a member of England’s elite government team of super heroes, MI-13.
