Yet another book has been added to Moonstone’s impressive line up of new and unique titles!

BUCKAROO BANZAI has been acquired by Moonstone! Yes, that wacky 1984 movie starring (Oscar nominees & Emmy winners) Peter Weller, John Lithgow, Ellen Barkin, Christopher Lloyd, and Jeff Goldblum is back! Buckaroo Banzai is a fiendishly clever action-packed adventure/comedy/drama in an outlandish world you’ll want to visit again and again! Buckaroo is part neural surgeon, part rock star, and some “pulp hero” tossed in for good measure!

Moonstone’s new book will be a NEW TALE of Buckaroo written by the character’s very own creator (and the movie’s screenwriter) Earl Mac Rauch!
The interior art will be handled by (“Star Wars”) Stephen Thompson.

With the guidance of the film’s director, W.D. Richter, the Buckaroo Banzai color mini series will continue the bizarre trail blazed by the film.

BUCKAROO BANZAI: a bold, titillating mix of particle physics, rock and roll, super-sonic speed machines, handsome men, beautiful women, and villains beyond redemption.
BUCKAROO BANZAI: if he’s not one thing, he’s another.

Movie reviews:

“Hip! Imaginative!  An offbeat sci-fi adventure with humor from every dimension!” –Hollywood Reporter

“Buckaroo doesn't just think he's a hero, he really is one, complete with tour bus, numerous sidekicks and his own comic book. He's a renaissance man for the 20th century, demonstrating supreme confidence in his chosen career—he's the sort of hero the world could use more of.” –SciFi.com

“…you'll find Buckaroo Banzai a delicious and funny piece of sci-fi with the same appeal that the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series has long held.  From its goofy hero to crazy dialogue…” –FilmCritic.com

“This insanely great little film has carved out a nice little niche for itself due solely to word of mouth by the rabid fans who refuse to let a good movie die.”- DVDreview.com
