Not convinced by Apocalypse. Still a good laugh, but it's missing the Tank Girl sparkle... It feels a bit kiddy and toned down compared to what I usually enjoy from the series.

The inspiration for 'TG: Apocalypse' (which is highlighted in the first few pages of the remastered edition) was promising enough, and I thought the following story was going to be a worthwhile read, full of poking fun at the crackpot end-of-the-world theories. Sure enough, Grant throws a whole bunch of this mythos into the story, but the overall impact of the narrative came across dry and aimless, it didn't ooze with Tank Girl's former insanity, providing very little characterisation. 'TG: Odyssey' (the previous collection) provided a much more thought out and talented tale, and if newcomers are approaching Tank Girl, that issue's a safer bet I'd say.

That said, 'Apocalypse' brings back a few familiar faces from earlier issues, which is a nice touch indeed. Unfortunately, gone is the extensive use of pop-culture references, though there's a few humourous celebrity cameos and mentions here and there. The art style's change is possibly one of the greatest let-downs, with Pritchett's drawing lacking a certain passion and devotion, all in all coming across as rather sloppy.

Worth a read if you're a TG fan, and possibly if you're a newcomer to the series, but bare in mind previous issues show TG and her world at their greatest.

End times: the competition 21 Jun 2007
By wiredweird - Published on Amazon.com
Every nutjob cult out there has decided that the end is near. They all disagree on how near, though, so they set out to make sure their end date is THE end date. Then, Our Girl discovers that she's inhabited by a little being - one who looks forward to calling her 'Mama'. Tank Girl, Mama. Say it a few times. Just doesn't work, does it? Sorry, her uterus says that's the way it is. Never argue with a uterus. (For one thing, they never listen.)

It seems like the end of the world for her. Oddly enough, all those other end-of-the-worlders seem to agree. Her little bouncing whatever is (as they say) The Sign, great sacrifice material, and the chase is on.

So, with bad attitude, bulging belly, and big battlegear, she's off. Booga, her mutant `roo bedmate can't wait to be a daddy (you want it so much? do it yourself). But, with Tank Girl, there's always one more surprise.

Tank Girl TPs 2 Dec 2008
By beansidhe.harmony - Published on Amazon.com
Great book, lots of post-apocalyptic beer-guzzling, butt-smoking, heat-packing action. It never hurts when your boyfriend is a homicidal manimal who resembles what was once a kangaroo, either. Sweet.
