Madman Entertainment Releases Desert Punk on DVD

Apr 30th 2006
SAND GETTING IN EVERYWHERE? IT MUST BE DESERT PUNK! MADMAN RELEASES THE FIRST VOLUME ON DVD.

MELBOURNE, Monday, 01 May, 2006 – All heads in the sand when this guy is around! Based on the Manga by Masatoshi Usune, DESERT PUNK is an all-new action/comedy series with plenty of fun and ‘e’, brought to you by the prolific Studio Gonzo (Samurai 7, Gantz).

Enter a decimated world deep within the desert, where a less-than-noble hero fights for less-than-noble causes & chases a voluptuous love interest for less-than-decent reasons. A world where war is a way of life, sarcasm is a mode of communication and the unexpected is always on the menu.

They call him "Sunabouzou" & despite his diminutive size, he is the craftiest, most deadly, most underhanded, most... perverted bounty hunter out on the sands!

DESERT PUNK VOL. 1 will also be available to purchase with a Limited Edition Collector's Box, to store all upcoming DVD releases of this series.

This is the first of six volumes of DESERT PUNK on DVD.
