Stopped by the comic store last night, and picked up the 50-cent special preview of the forthcoming Buckaroo Banzai series from Moonstone.
The preview features the first few pages of the story (uncolored), and then an article about the long road from the original film to the new comic (including details on the two failed TV proposals, etc.). Good stuff.
A while back , I had talked with Rauch and Richter about licensing the property for a role-playing game….at the time, they were trying to get the second TV proposal off the ground, and weren’t interested in licensing. Now that those aren’t in the works, the comic book is a pretty good indication that they’re willing to consider licensing now. Perhaps I should dig up the contact info and try again…..
