So I ordered Amazing Joy Buzzards, volume 1 Here Come the Spiders.
The world's greatest rock 'n roll adventure band makes their original graphic novel debut With girl-magnet Biff on guitar and vocals, tough guy Stevo on bass, and four-eyed genius Gabe on drums - not to mention their mythical Mexican wrestler genie, El Campeon - the Amazing Joy Buzzards hop from one fast-paced adventure to the next, living life to the fullest! As their world tour commences, their battle with the nefarious Spider Syndicate gets into full swing with the fate of the world in the balance!
It is the work of Mark Smith, who posts here from time to time to talk about his new books, and Dan Hipp
, who has also done Gyakushu. I think it first came out in 2005. I remember Whippy and some other guys raving about it.
There have been some questions about this volume 1, when there already was a volume 1 a few years ago.
is that a reprint of the first vol of amazing joy buzzards?
Um... kind of. I guess it is a re-do, kind of.
Mark Smith said:
Also being reprinted are The Amazing Joy Buzzards Volumes 1 & 2 in one Volume titled: HERE COME THE SPIDERS. This volume is only the continuity issues of Amazing Joy Buzzards with none of the guest material, so the story reads straight through all the way, and leads into the next volume MONSTER LOVE. This is the Joy Buzzards remastered edition which will be out in May at 300 pages. The new volume is printed in the Sin City Digest format.
Everything is in the right order and things have been changed around. Make sure you order the right one, because I guess the original volume 1 is still available, and it is easy to get confused, especially if you order trades on Amazon or some place similar.
You can preview it at Hipp's website, under the AJB tab, or here
; read reviews with preview art (like this one
; or just read a review. Much like Scott Pilgrim and Sharknife, the band also has a Myspace.
