Blue News #1 front cover by Arcane Annie

Blue News is a Buckaroo Banzai newsletter published in Melbourne, Australia in the early 1990s. At least two issues were published.

Volume 1, Number 1

This issue was published in November 1990. It focused mainly on new films featuring the Buckaroo Banzai cast.

Articles included:

  • Robocop 2: it's big, man, big (film featuring Peter Weller)
  • Movie Reviews: Robocop 2
  • Ghost: a visible success (film featuring Vincent Schiavelli)
  • Smith, Wesson, Jamie and Clancy (Blue Steel film featuring Jamie Lee Curtis and Clancy Brown)
  • Do-It-Yourself Robovision (designing Robocop's interfaces based on Mac and DOS computers)
  • Sense and Sexuality: putting a Sea of Love on screen isn't as easy as it looks (film featuring Ellen Barkin)

The request for contributions on page six read:

Come on folks, send those cards and letters flooding in, especially ones with movie and/or soundtrack reviews enclosed. Also welcome is any BB-related news you hear on the grapevine (hey, ETW was cancelled by Channel 10 and yer editor is destitute!), illos, fillos, pillows and of course your comments, suggestions, ideas and/or abuse re Blue News. Sock it to me: I'll take it like a person!

Volume 2, Number 1

This issue was published in January/February 1992.
