Book Description

17 July 2007 Hellsing (Book 8)
London is already bathed in blood, its citizenry almost entirely slaughtered by vampiric, reborn nazi soldiers. And marching through the rivers of blood - thousands of extreme Catholic warriors in creepy cloaks. But the focus of this chaotic eighth volume is the return of Alucard, the slave-paladin of the British Protestants, who's just piloted an aircraft character up the Thames to join the fray. It's a crazy face-off between three gory armies and their primary killers, and if you think that sounds nuts, wait until you dive into the crimson-stained new volume of Kohta Hirano's creepy-cool Hellsing manga series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alucard's true power 24 Sep 2010
By T. R. Alexander TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After volume seven focused mostly on Seras Victoria, this eighth volume of the `Hellsing' manga focuses on Alucard himself. With the Hellsing forces greatly outnumbered Alucard is allowed to release his full power and the result is a vision of hell. However, while Alucard is now at his most powerful, he is also at his most vulnerable and Father Anderson will get his best chance to finish the monster.

This is another truly brilliant volume of the `Hellsing' manga with some nice dark images and some great action. This volume also includes some interesting background for both Alucard himself, as well as Archbishop Maxwell. This volume also includes a little bit of humour from the Major as well. `Hellsing is a brilliant series and with only two volumes left it is set to go out with a bang.

4.0 out of 5 stars The saga continues 26 July 2007
By K. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Kohta Hirano's bloody vampire epic continues in this newest volume. Picking up directly where the last one left off, we find ourselves in the middle of a raging battle between the millennium organization, the vatican, and what remains of the hellsing organization. Alucard has just arrived at the party, and it promises to be a hell of a time. Fans of the series will not be disappointed, as everyone's favorite vampire anti-hero pulls out all the stops, finally showing us what happens when he releases all of his control art restriction levels. We also finally get a glance into his past, and perhaps a hint of what makes him what he is. In typical Hellsing fashion, the volume ends on a note that will leave you begging for volume 9 to be released.

I enjoyed this volume, but I'm not entirely sure that it was worth the wait. A year is a pretty long time to wait for a single volume, especially when not much has progressed, story-wise. I'll continue to read this series, as it is one of the best out there, but I will no longer make it my top priority to look for new volumes, and I can't help but be relieved when I hear that volume 10 will be the final installment in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic! 22 Oct 2007
By GretS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Was this worth the year long wait? I am still not sure, but I am surprised by this installment in the Hellsing story. Hellsing is still a gore fest through on through, but what caught me off gaurd was character depth. Kohta Hirano created more than a gore fest of a manga he actually created a story that is very profond.

In this installment he see more into the heart of Alucard. More to the fact we finally we get an idea of what makes him tick, and why he has such a strong respect for Father Anderson.

" A weak monster like me, a monster that could not go on being human must defeated by a human." -Alucard, Hellsing Vol. 8 page 143.

Over a 100 years ago Dracula was defeated by Van Helsing, Holmwood, Morris, and Seward. Hirano added to the story of Dracula, by telling us the aftermath of the events of Bram Stoker`s story, and a good addition it is. In volume eight one begins to wonder if Alucard is looking for release from his unlife from a worthy advesary. Van Helsing did not kill Dracula in the end, but made him a servant/ soldier to help in the cursade rid the world of other creatures of darkness. What better soldier to have than the king of vampires himself?

We also find that Dracula in his madness lost everything that was around him. As Alucard, he is not lost on this irony.

I had forgotten that the original Vlad the Impaler did serve the Vactican, which back in the 15th century was not unusual for someone who is roaylty. . My history is still a bit fuzzy. For Hellsing, this little tidbit of infomation proves to be vital.

It serves as paralell with Father Anderson, and a good explanation for Alucard`s animosity for the Vactican. Alucard became a monster for war during his days as human fighting the Turks and so forth. Father Anderson is a human who fights monsters, but has not totally given up his humanity like Alucard.

Enough rambles and rants from me. Give Hellsing a read. Yeah its gory and insane, but look beyond that and you find good horror story with some seriuos plot and character depth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as suspenseful as I was anticipating 20 Sep 2007
By O. Matos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I mean, I wasn't totally disappointed with this next installation, but for the prolonged wait and the lack of progress story wise, I almost felt shortchanged. I am really hoping the next volume will be a bit more satisfying and hopefully not take as long to make it over seas? Well, that's my opinion anyway.
