Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hellsing continues with more blood, guts, ghouls, and gothic murder. Created by Kohta Hirano, and making its way into an incredibly popular anime, Hellsing pushes the boundary of horror, yet looks so visually stunning and graphically cool that instead of being scary, it's super fun. Certainly not intended for younger readers, this series follows the Hellsing Organization, an old institution created by English royalty to squash the ghoulish undead of the world, as they face an insurgence of murderous monsters running rampant across the isles, fueled by... could it be... Nazi's? Watch the dark story unravel as Dark Horse Manga presents Hellsing volume 2.

CAUTION: POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR THE PREVIOUS BOOK IN THE SERIES CONTAINED IN THIS REVIEW!

Sir Integra Hellsing has summoned a meet of the twelve powerful people who run the British Empire from behind the scenes to discuss worrisome vampire attacks that don't fit with typical vamp behavior. While the leaders discuss what to do and Alucard and Seras re-arm and relax, a pair of vampires who have carefully plotted an attack on Hellsing HQ put their plan into action.

Still a definite lack of plot, although I can start to see a hint of one by the end of the book. I think this volume is still in the introductory stage, as we meet more characters and get to know them a bit. Alucard and Seras are hopelessly cliche at this point, but Integra and Walter (her older butler/bodyguard/vampire hunter) are just getting more interesting.

The art has some wobbly moments and is rather badly crowded. The panel layout is still poor, but flows a bit better than the last volume. The story's pacing felt off, sluggish at times and then badly rushed.
