Product Description

Review

"I think what I appreciated most about "Tank Girl: Armadillo!" is Alan C. Martin's writing. I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this book when it came to how the story was going to be told, but not only can he write some mean chaotic prose, he also give us pauses in the action which are not only poetic, but actual poetry. It might sound corny, but these poetic interludes show us the Tank Girl who would exist if she didn't have to be concerned about wearing armour to protect herself from the havoc of everyday existence.
"Tank Girl: Armadillo!" is the natural heir to the British comedy shows of the 1960's and 1970's like "Monty Python's Flying Circus" in that it also takes an illogical situation to its most logical conclusion. The only difference is that "Tank Girl: Armadillo!" has far more basis in reality than those other shows did. On the surface this is a hoot and a holler, but underneath it all is a call to arms.
We could all use a little more Tank Girl in our lives and "Tank Girl: Armadillo!" is just the answer. "
"Richard Marcus, Blog Critics Magazine"
"Alan Martin is an amazing writer...Tank Girl Armadillo is one of the best things I've read. Alan Martin goes up there with Philip K. Dick, Kurt Vonnegut, William Gibson, and the other madmen novelists who've changed my life forever." "Comics2Film"

By M. Dowden HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 7 Feb. 2009
Format: Paperback
At last......She's Back!! And as sassy, rude and in your face as ever. She is the kind of girl you wish you were with and the kind of girl your girlfriend wishes she was. With the love of her life, the half kangeroo Booga and her usual assortment of dysfunctional friends they decide to get revenge on the town of Chankers where Booga comes from. So be prepared for violence and loads of crude humour. The attack on Chankers is the story that goes under the name of Armadillo in this book, and is the only novel. The second part of this book is made up of very short stories and a couple of scripts for graphic presentation. Also thrown in are a few poems, and an interview with everyone's favourite anti-heroine.

I would advise you to stay clear if you don't know who Tank Girl is because you may not get it all, also be careful if reading this in a public place because you will laugh out loud in some places. I first came to Tank Girl through the brilliant film, Tank Girl [1995]. So for me even reading the graphic novels Tank Girl will always look like the excellent and so sexy Lori Petty. If you are into quirky humour and like something a bit different and raw you will like this.

Most Tank girl fans will start off loving her through the comics and some through the film. You may turn your nose up at this book but i think that if you love Tankgirl you will deffinatley love this book!(as long as you have an imagination and sense of humour) I love the graphic novels but think Tank girl works really well in a 'novel' form as we already have a striking image of her built up for us so can transfer what we have into the themes in this book. I may be speaking for myself only but i personally loved reading the chapters and smirking to myself as i could see in my head the images to go with it. I really loved reading this, i realise it's not for everyone but think if you can keep an open mind you will love it to. Also, the chapters are short so it gives it a conformity to the graphic novel format and makes the overall pace of the book similar to what you may be used to. I know you may be unsure but go on, try it. It's worth it in my opinion.

Even though this is a novel rather than a book, it still fits in the Tank Girl universe brilliantly. A nice change of pace but still the same hilarious fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars She still smells awful after all these years 11 Jun. 2008
By Acid-Raina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Our beer guzzling, chain smoking, roo shagging anti heroine is back in a whole new light.

I love Tank Girl. She came into my life at about age twelve and has always been there, even in her long absence from comics. I'll admit that though I highly enjoyed the latest series 'The Gifting' it did feel like something was missing with the absence of Jamie Hewlett's art. When I picked up Armadillo I assumed I would find the same hole Mr. Hewlett left. I couldn't have been more mistaken.

In this medium the world of Tank Girl is able to sprawl out before us in a vast new way. Gone are the constrictive bounds of the comic book panel, gone are the small clipped narratives and lack of inner monologue; all set free apart from the limits of our own imaginations.

I would recommend...no...I would insist that any long time Tank Girl fan pick this up and devour it as I did. The 156 page story, Armadillo! is comedic magnificence. The 2nd half called The Bushel is a nice collection of shorts, comic scripts and odd bits that are sure to burst or necessitate some stitches. Newer fans might want to familiarize themselves with some of the Tank Girl classics before delving into this world so they can completely appreciate the elevation of the characters, setting and general storytelling.

I always new Martin was a comedic genius, but he really shines brightest here all on his own. Until he gives us another volume like this one, I'll be rabidly craving more.

Tank Girl Armadillo was a seamless transition from the original comic books to text, and was just as enjoyable. I would strongly recommend to any Tank Girl fans.

Awsome . Now if kindle would just put the entire series on here that would be great. Maybe they eventually will.
5.0 out of 5 stars Tank Girl, we love you!! 5 Jun. 2016
By Titus Prime - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of Tank Girl, this is a must read.

Martin brings her to life in a way that the comics could not, giving her depth and dimensions far beyond snogging and explosions; there is plenty of that too.

If you don't know who Tank Girl is,,,well, there really isn't anything I can say. Go buy the original collections and when you cant find anything else, read this book..
5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff!! 8 Sept. 2012
By MikeJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I wondered if a Tank Girl story would be as enjoyable without the accompanying visual insanity provided by the series' many talented artists and here Martin proves it so. This was just sheer brilliance and fun. One of the best books I've read this year. Not the great [insert nationality here] novel, sure, but I couldn't put it down.
