Variant cover and six pages preview from Buckaroo Banzai Big Size #1 by Earl Mac Rauch, Paul Hanley and that crazy punk who calls himself Renato Guerra, bring to you by Moonstone Books. To this project I brought and see Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension movie like 7 times and I have developed my own ideas (including a kind of fluxus-verse full of alternate versions, a big singularity, design drugs and a ever present big bang) about the current situation that show us how Buckaroo lives in a shapeshifting reality. If I cant use my ideas in a Buckaroo tale (Im just a silly colorist) Im going to use in some short story.
It’s an all-new, rollicking, non-stop adventure tale by Banzai’s creator!
In a race to save the famed wild asses of the remote Kush mountain range, Buckaroo Banzai and the Hong Kong Cavaliers uncover a large-scale World Crime League operation led by a shadowy figure from the Cavaliers’ past. Just who is Dick Ready? Is Tommy ready? Are asses wiped out for their aphrodisiac properties? Who is the mysterious Blind Sheik? Perfect Tommy in an all-out revenge duel to the death – but with knives or guitar solos? A Hong Kong Cavalier breathes his last while another has turned to the dark side? And, most importantly, is any of this caught on tape?
