Remember the promise at the end of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension that the crew would return to take on the World Crime League? Yeah… it took decades, but we are finally able to get our hands on the prose novel that hasn’t been in print since 2021.
Buckaroo Banzai Against the World Crime League, Et Al: A Compendium of Evils is a softcover release of the 2021 hardcover written by E.M. Rauch, the original screenwriter of the movie.
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.
