Tank Girl really was the hippest thing to come out of the UK in the nineties. Its still outstandingly cool today now that the creators have moved on to bigger but not better things like Gorrilaz. Hewlett's art is brilliant and Martin's scripts are anarchic in the extreme. The fourth wall is frequently knocked down and the authors excitment at the comic medium is evident on every page. Must have.

Great, great book. In fact, I didn't expect it to be that good. The quality of the paper is amazing and the extra coloured pages in the end are a delight.

It's a great edition, even someone like me who wasn't familiar with the "Gorillaz" artist's previous work can tell that this edition is worth having because of how well laid out it is and for the short yet cool intro. I bought the used copy and it is in great condition! ENjoy!

I love this book so much .The art is INSANE and the text is HILARIOUS . These are the first and best Tank Girl stories printed in their originel black and white.The creative duo are Jamie Hewlett (Gorillaz)and Alan Martin .The eponymous character Tank Girl drives a tank, which is also her home. She undertakes a series of missions for a nebulous organization before making a serious mistake and being declared an outlaw for her sexual inclinations and her substance abuse. The comic centres on her misadventures with her boyfriend, Booga (a mutant kangaroo),her ex-boyfriend Stevie(A wild-haired blond Aborigine who owns a convenience store and chain-smokes)and her favorite stuffed toy ,Camp Koala (A stitchy, brown, gay, koala-shaped stuffed toy described as "the Jeremy Thorpe of comics").I loved this book and highly recommend this and so buy it you fool.
