A New DVD

One of the highlights of the week is “Broken Saints — The Animated Saga” finally out on DVD. Four strangers each have similar visions of a doomed future and are drawn to a dark city in the west where each of them have unknowingly become the keys to saving the Earth from a horrible future filled with destruction and death. Visually beautiful, edgy in its content and an animated series that doesn’t insult the viewer’s intelligence, “Broken Saints” is a masterpiece of work that, hands down, beats most anything going in terms of animated series or films. The DVD collects the entire 24-episode saga in a four-disc set finally available in the U.S. and Canada for the first time. The DVD is also jampacked with special features including trailers, numerous featurettes, fan works and much more.

Price: $49.98.
