Influential and featuring some great art tank girl is a legend. Everyone should read some just to understand the fuss, very funny but also a litle dated, it harkens from a time in the early 90's when smoking in pubs was allowed, LSD was as freely consumed as coffee and the Torries were in power.
This does dampen the effect somewhat as it is very culturally specific, also this second edition contains some of the more openly drug influenced strips which leads to slightly less cohesian in the storyline or drawing.

You will enjoy it but maybe not more than once or twice.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the early stories 26 April 2010
By CraigAS
Format:Paperback
Hewlett and Martin begin to lose the plot a bit in this collection. Frequently indulging their egos by inserting themselves into every other storyline. As such this collection is less coherent than Tank Girl: One. It is, however, an interesting window into the early nineties British comic scene and the authors should be applauded for pushing the comic medium to (and some would say: past) its breaking point.

4.0 out of 5 stars Printed Insanity, not for everyone 20 Nov 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Tank Girl is the epitome of a cult classic. It is definately not your traditional comic, there isn't much plot to speak of, nor is there much depth in the stories. This is not the book to read for concise social commentary or introspection. This magic of Tank Girl lies in its incredible art, cathartic writing, and the interaction between the numerous insane characters (as well as the characters and the creators). I would reccommend Tank Girl to someone with a very twisted sense of humor and an open mind. It's not for everyone, and does take a different mind set to appreciate. The only reason I do not give it 5 stars is that one or two of the stories in this book were a little too slow at points, and some of the pages were too cluttered. These are minor gripes, but I don't want to say it's a perfect collection. But worth the $.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Drug years??? 24 July 2009
By jaxx - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This compilation, like Volume 1, was put together very well with great side notes, an intro from Alan and other extras. They still give you the strips as they were originally drawn, but this was evidentally the point in time when they started to color the strips for Deadline.
Now, let's talk about the downsides of this book. The only complaints about it are really the content of the strip more than anything. This particular compilation seems to house the years of the series when Alan and Jamie were really experimenting as writers and artists, respectively, but also doing much of said experimenting alongside of narcotic experimentation. It references certain authors and movies these guys evidently thought were people to be worshipped (Jack Kerouac's work seems to be the big one), all the while luring the artwork in and out of a psychadelic montage. In fact, most of the book seemed like one big, horny acid trip to me. It started to get a little out of control around the middle. But as I said, earlier: This isn't so much a problem with the compilation so much as it is with the series. So, if you don't like the idea of Tank girl drifting away from the romping through the Outback and into psychological/psychosexual belches followed by 1950s "clean" time, followed by a big psychadelic mess and finally touched off with poverty in the snow jokes, you'd probably just be better off with Volume 1 and only volume 1 (of course, Volume 3 is still on the waiting time...).

This is a must-read comic, definitely worth having in your library, would recommend to all, although it can be a bit cheeky at times. This trilogy is at least the minimum amount of tank girl one should have read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not For Everyone 7 Aug 2013
By DG - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I knew going into Tank Girl that it was probably not the book for me. I often have trouble with books that muddle the narrative or have no plot to speak of. Nonetheless, I appreciated volume 1. Tank girl is original, creative, edgy and pretty cool. Hewlett's art is grungy and simply different than anything else out there. Having said that, volume 2 seems to spiral out of control. There really is not cohesive plot, and there are entire stories where its impossible to tell what is happening. Hewlet and Martin were definitely doing a lot of drugs at this point. The lack of cohesive plot really bothered me because I become frustrated without a rationale narrative or when I can't tell what is happening. This book really wasn't for me, but if you are looking for something original it might be worth a try after you've exhausted Grant Morrison.
