Description de l’éditeur
Liz, Bodey, Maude, and Justine's band, Odd Schnozz and the Odd Squad, are sure to win this year's Battle of the Bands. But when a talking chimp, who claims to be a scientist from the mysterious organization B.L.A.N.K., interrupts their practice session, the band's got a whole new set of problems. Now B.L.A.N.K. agents are closing in, determined to recapture the escaped chimp before he becomes a liability. Jeffrey Burandt (Americans UK) and Dennis Culver (Edison Rex) bring you this thrilling tale of cyborg animals and punk rock teenagers. 1, 2, 3, 4!
The nose knows, and that s certainly true for high school outcast Liz Minter, who can discern imminent danger a nasal version of Spidey-sense, essentially. The talent comes in handy as Liz and her garage band get a violent introduction to the strange happenings in their hometown of Plano, Tex. It all begins when a talking chimpanzee drops out of a tree to enlist their help. The chimp is actually Dr. Frederick Zakowski, who escaped a secret organization, B.L.A.N.K., by transferring his mind into the ape s body. Mix King of the Hill with Daria and blast it with gamma radiation, and you ll have a good sense of the wild world that newcomer Burandt and Culver (Edison Rex) have created. Rapping robots turn deadly during a Battle of the Bands competition, betrayals and family secrets abound, and B.L.A.N.K. agents (not to mention the cyborg cheetahs, flying robo-dolphins, and gator-copters their grisly experiments have yielded) are lurking around every corner. This... is too much, says bandmate Maude during a climactic fight that involves growth serum, a three-headed giraffe-bot, and a bear on tank treads. By that point, readers may be tempted to agree. Ages 13 up.
