Experiencing Interruptions?


The world ends not with a bang, or a whimper, but with a… pancake? That’s the pivotal item of focus in this endearing animated short film “Pancakes” from the Hellboy comic universe. Inspired by and adapted from Mike Mignola’s two page comic of the same name featured in the graphic novel “Hellboy: The Right Hand of Doom”, the comic focuses on a little known chapter in Hellboy’s life as a young child. The animated short follows the popular character’s reluctant attempt at eating a pancake for the very first time and unknowingly thwarting the forces of darkness in the process.
