We know what the watermelon is for! Watch the commentary on the DVD/Bluray! None other than Reno himself explains all. :slight_smile:

Dammit. For a second, I thought there was a movie.

A favorite driving and motorcycling song as well.

Also, no better place than here to crow about my own little piece of the movie: The screen-used cap worn by Bill Henderson, AKA Blue Blaze Irregular Casper Lindley, in the 1984 docudrama of Buckaroo’s exploits!

Oh, that’s awesome!!

I’m glad it’s not a movie… there’s no way something like the original would be pulled off today (unless it was something of a Kickstarter and a labor of love by all participants).

2021 looking up.

Is this a novel or a graphic novel?

Awesome news! We just released the latest issue of the Buckaroo Banzai newsletter, called World Watch One, on January 10th. We’ll be sure to cover the new novel in the pages of a future issue. You can find the latest issue, with Mrs. Johnson on the cover, at the Buckaroo Banzai FAQ website. I can’t post a link here, but a quick search will turn up the FAQ site for you.

Hmmmm. How are other folks able to add images and links to their posts? I wasn’t. Maybe I have to be around for a bit before I am allowed to do that?

Years ago Ernie Cline (of “Ready Player One” fame) wrote a script for “Buckaroo Banzai Against The World Crime League.” Ernie was the perfect person to write this, and the script was the perfect expression of the idea. https://buckaroobanzai.fandom.com/wiki/Against_the_World_Crime_League

Novel.

There have been a couple of comics, but (IMHO) they’re not worth chasing down.

Yes, that. Read a little bit, like a few posts, read the welcome guide, and you should be able to post link shortly.

$30 hardback only, no Kindle version, ouch. Totally worth it, but I prefer ebooks now.
