3.0 out of 5 stars Hmmmmmm
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Aimless and sloppy, 27 Jan 2013

This review is from: Tank Girl: Apocalypse (Paperback)
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.
