Buckaroo Banzai : The Prequel #1 August 30, 2008

It’s been years since last I heard the name Buckaroo Banzai (remember the 80’s flic with Peter Weller?) and now he’s back…well at least as a comic book hero.

Moonstone which is a publisher i’ve never heard of before has picked up Buckaroo Banzai for this 2 issue micro series prequel. The art is very weak in this book and the first issue ends abruptly without even an ..To Be Continued.. when we’re at the final frame.

The basics of the story are alright giving us insight into the man that Buckaroo is (prior to the movie) and his time challenge to figure out how to enter the eighth dimension while still being a rock star.

If this publisher picked up some real art talent this comic would likely be far more appealing. As it is, I’ll likely buy the second issue just because but it is extremely unlikely that we will ever review another Moonstone title, the artwork is just that bad.

Then again the original movie was really campy cheesy stuff too..check out the trailer below for a reminder…aaaaaaaaaaaah the 80’s…
