Synopsis: TANK GIRL’S FIRST ONGOING IN 30 YEARS! Original creator ALAN MARTIN and fan-favorite artist BRETT PARSON bring Tank Girl into a whole new era. Explore the backstories and secrets behind the world of the post-apocalyptic punk icon!
Review: Titan have been releasing Trade Papers Backs of ‘Tank Girl’ for a while now, and we’ve even reviewed a few of them over the years. So with that in mind. We were keen to give this first issue of a new ongoing Tank Girl series a look. Especially given that it is the first ongoing story that most fans of Tank Girl will have seen for over 30 years.
The story for this opening issue takes a little while to get going as we get slowly introduced to Tank Girl and her crew. But in a nutshell, they are celebrating her long-term relationship with the mutant kangeroo Booga and planning a trip in the brand new Tank Master.
When she gets word from her mother. Tank Girl rushes her plans up a notch in order to drive the incomplete and highly dangerous Tank Master, which looks like a mix between an RV and a Tank.
Brett Parson’s artwork and take on the various characters is really, really good. I really enjoyed the sequence that introduces the Tank Master, but also a lot of fun was the rather awkward looking scenario of mutant Kangeroo Booga who has rescued an ordinary Kangerwoo and called her Barbara.
Fans of the Tank Girl comics will likely really love this given that the dialogue and the action are as anarchic as I remember. The dialogue, which is written by Alan Martin is as fast and loose as you’d expect for a Tank Girl comic and yes a lot of the humor is rather crude but a lot of fun if you are a fan of off the wall toilet humor.
Overall. This is definitely for the grown-up kids.
