Buckaroo Bonzai Returns with Dark Horse

Well, it’s been a while. For decades people have been wondering if there would be a sequel to the sci-fi novel (and later cult film) The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. Dark Horse has announced that August 10, 2021 fans will get to see the sequel in the hardcover prose novel Buckaroo Banzai Against the World Crime League, et al: A Compendium of Evils! The book is 544 pages and retails for $29.99

Here’s the official synopsis:

Still mourning the losses of his beloved Penny Priddy and his surrogate father Professor Hikita, Buckaroo Banzai must also contend with the constant threat of attack from his immortal nemesis Hanoi Xan, ruthless leader of the World Crime League. To make matters worse, Planet 10 warrior queen John Emdall has sent her Lectroid legions against Earth with a brutal ultimatum. Or is her true target Buckaroo Banzai? As the apocalyptic threats continue to mount, only Buckaroo and his Hong Kong Cavaliers stand in the way of global destruction—or in the words of one of the movie’s iconic lines: “Laugh-a while you can, monkey boy!”

 Buckaroo Banzai Against the World Crime League is available for pre-order on AmazonBarnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop and bookstore.
