Hellboy Animated: Sword Of Storms

3

With the second Hellboy movie not due to hit cinemas until next August 2008, fans of Mike Mignola’s stylish comic book creation can still follow the character on the small screen with this DVD release. Combining elements from the comics and film, along with liberal doses of Japanese folklore, this enjoyable animated feature finds good demon Hellboy trapped in another dimension, hitting zombies and spider-demons with his big stone hand.

The more school-hall gags might feel out of place, but the sharp writing and the vocal presence of both Ron Perlman and Selma Blair from the movie means this should be a hit with devotees.
