In a nutshell: non-stop cartoon action with real heart | The adventures continue for little android Hilo and his human friends D.J. and Gina, and they are as fast, funny and inventive as ever. Hilo and D.J. have to rescue Gina, who was sucked into a portal in the previous episode, and when they finally find her there’s a new world to explore, a surprise reunion with an old friend, and new enemies to take on; new information about Hilo’s past comes to light too. Judd Winnick cleverly keeps all the plates spinning, frame after frame. Hilo’s adventures are great to look at, and while the action is non-stop, Winnick still finds space for character development and a nice emphasis on friendship too.
For more action-packed, funny space adventures try Steve Cole’s Magic Ink books, and for more brilliant cartoon action in colour there’s Star Cat and Evil Emperor Penguin from the Phoenix Comic Presents series. ~ Andrea Reece
When we last saw our INTREPID TRIO, Gina had been sucked into a mysterious portal to who-knows-where. But friends don't let friends disappear into NOWHERE! It's up to D.J. and Hilo to follow her! Will there be danger? YES! Will there be amazing surprises? OF COURSE!
Will Gina end up being the one to save them? DEFINITELY! With the help of Polly, the magical warrior cat, the friends will have to battle bad guys and face disgusting food, an angry mom, terrible knock-knock jokes, powerful magic, and more! Will they survive and make it back to Earth before the portal closes again?
