WD Richter return to their
creation with a brand new story! A wild epic tale that sets up the
film! An adventure so secret, so wild, so hair raising, that it
couldn’t be told before now!His rock and roll band on the road, no
money, his voice lost, a doppelganger, the overthruster invention
without inspiration… We also flashback on the origins of Banzai’s
musical career, and the Hong Kong Cavaliers, and the oft rumored about
but never talked about…final fate of the Illinois Mongoose!" and "Don’t
miss the conclusion of “Of Hunan Bondage”, the wild epic tale that sets
up the film! Action!- Adventure! -Love! -Bondage! You’ll laugh: you’ll
cry; you’ll get a craving for watermelon… Inside you’ll find: Banzai
tortured, a dream meeting of the great minds, Peggy Priddy captured,
the insidious Hanoi Xan, beautiful young virgins, a fill-in harp
player, the first test of the overthruster, The Hong Kong Cavaliers to
the rescue, …and the ultimate sacrifice!"
