Entertaining compilation. Great introduction to the franchise.
on June 17, 2009
Being somewhat a cult comic fan, I'm always on the lookout for REALLY original looking stuff. So when I heard about "Tank Girl," I HAD to check it out. This compilation series starts off with Alan Martin, the writer of Tank Girl, giving an introduction talking about the source of inspiration for Tank Girl among other things. The series itself is pretty random and childish, but also very funny, violent, sexy and stylish. It's mostly about a girl in her early twenties driving a highly armed tank around a post-apocalyptic Australia. Lots of boozing, nudity and kangaroo jokes.
This volume shows all the Tank Girl stuff from the first 8 issues of Deadline in the original black and white forms, which can be problem because :
A.) Some of the words are sort of faded, but not too bad.
B.) All you people who constantly demand to see color in movies, comics and music will be sorely disappointed.
Anyway, as a newcomer to the series, I was happy with it, but for the rest of you veteran fans, there's probably not too many reasons for you to replace the previous compilations you bought years ago with this one.
