Sieg Heil is the customary German greeting used during the Nazi era. One of several possible translations is "for ensured victory". Which is probably a good thing to say a lot if you plan on conquering the world.

It should be noted that using this greeting in modern Germany is treated as a very serious crime. Do not use IWC! as a German language primer for tourism!

And of course you will all remember the last time we saw Erwin was jumping out of a zeppelin over Poland after the orichalcum.

2015-09-26 Rerun commentary: Wow, is that ever an understatement: "Do not use IWC! as a German language primer". Most of the German in this comic is hopelessly mangled. (And deliberately so, because getting it right would have been way too much trouble for me.)

Thinking back, IWC! has included English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, and Latin. Hmm... maybe I should get some more languages in there, in sha'Allah.
