What information is there about the Buckaroo Banzai Hard Cover comic collections (2012)?

The Moonstone books (http://www.moonstonebooks.com) has collected many (but not all) of the Buckaroo Banzai comics that they've printed in two hard cover collections.

From the Moonstone site:

Buckaroo Banzai HC#1: Return of the Screw

Story: Earl Mac Rauch, Joe Gentile
Art: Stephen Thompson, Keith Williams
Cover: Dave Dorman
118pgs, color, 7” x 10”, color, HC, $39.99

Along with his Hong Kong Cavaliers, Banzai must battle more than one surprise arch enemy, each with their own motives, but all acting in concert to bring Banzai to his knees!

All this sandwiched between a couple of great rock and roll guitar solos, a few surgical procedures, a crazy gun battle on land and air, Buck’s one chance for the ultimate revenge, his soul in turmoil, all the chicks digging him, engineering synchronicity, pretty toilets, a human pickle, and a giant sombrero!

This volume reprints the super-seller 3 issue mini series, plus a TON of extra goodies: character files! unused covers! alternate ending! production designs from the unfilmed TV Movie! An interview with Banzai’s creator Mac Rauch!
