Foo Fighters to Develop ‘The Amazing Joy Buzzards’ Music?
The Amazing Joy Buzzards has been an under-the-radar favorite of mine for quite a while now, so it was nice to see the series’ name appear on this week’s list of releases. Apparently, Image Comics is publishing a new "director’s cut" of the first volume of the superhero rock band’s adventures, titled "Here Come the Spiders."
Matt Brady has posted an interview with Mark Andrew Smith and Dan Hipp, who write and provide the art for the series, respectively.
During the interview, Smith drops this piece of information that made me even more fond of the series — and its (potential) future:
We’re always quiet on what the Amazing Joy Buzzards sound like because every reader plugs their own favorite band into the spot. But soon we might have an Amazing Joy Buzzards cartoon in the works with the Foo Fighters involved developing their sound so eventually for film and animation they will actually have a sound if all goes well.
Foo Fighters, eh? Here’s the part when I say, "Rock on."
For the rest of the interview, head over to Brady’s website.
[UPDATE – June 19, 2008: Mark Andrew Smith recently contacted ComicMix to clarify that nothing is finalized regarding the Foo Fighters or the band’s involvement with anything related to Amazing Joy Buzzards. The text of the interview on Matt Brady’s website has been edited to remove any reference to the band’s involvement, as the terms of any agreement with Foo Fighters or other entities are still under discussion. We have preserved the excerpt of the original interview here, in the interest of maintaining transparency. -RM]
