    Tank Girl is a series of subtle, intellectual parries at the patriarchy, ruling class and aristocracy, illustrated with razor-fine exactitude. No. Tank Girl, from 1988-1990, when she appeared in Deadline Magazine in the UK, birthed into existence by a bunch of reprobates who would eventually help to create things like Preacher and Gorillaz, was a series of ass and boob jokes that poked fun at sex and violence and took back-alley stabs at the patriarchy, ruling class, aristocracy, and the general u Tank Girl is a series of subtle, intellectual parries at the patriarchy, ruling class and aristocracy, illustrated with razor-fine exactitude.

It is rude, drunken, chaotic and gloriously good fun. Funny, too. As with anything, not all of it has aged well, but if you go around deciding to care about stuff like that, there may be no help for you. This collection has been colorized, but in a good way, not that bullshit shiny stuff they do. Get it. Read it. Enjoy. Maybe don't tell anyone.

    My quest to read more British comics continues with a fairly well-known property, Tank Girl. I never saw the 90s movie and have virtually no knowledge of Tank Girl, so I’m going in cold. And what a wacky comic this is. It’s crude, subversive, and very punk. It can also be fun. I like all the fourth-wall breaking and pop culture references (the Tom Waits one being my favorite), while each story bursts with energy. Were I younger I probably would have liked this more.

As it stands, I think it’s pretty good, though not something I can casually read. You have to be in the mood for this type of nonsensical zaniness. The recolored art looks good to my eyes. It's not glossy and feels natural.

    Nonsensical and a blast to read. It's raunchy, rude, and absolutely fun. It's like a combination of JTHM, the looney tunes, and a lot of haphazard 80s flare. The art style and character designs are so satisfying. The disjointed almost anthological style of storytelling keeps you from taking any of it seriously, which is a good thing. It's a woman living in a tank fucking a sentient kangaroo. How can it get better from here? Nonsensical and a blast to read. It's raunchy, rude, and absolutely fun.

    Picked this up out of interest based on Hewlett’s involvement with Gorillaz (and enjoying his style). Madcap fun, and the individual strips that make up the collection are wild but compact, like a small shot of adrenaline to the eyeball. I don’t know enough about the landscape of comics to comment on how this would have sat in that context, but it seems like it would have stuck out.

    Not only are the first Tank Girl stories still amazing, the added archival content makes this a solid compilation of a comic legend

    A delight of anarchic comedy madness and attitude in living colo(u)R! Bloody Marvelously chaotic...
