21st Century Tank Girl Preview

That’s big news. Especially if, like me, you’ve loved Tank Girl since its original strip back in Deadline magazine published in the late 80’s.

She was bad mouthed, violent, anarchic and occasionally slept with a kangaroo. She was (and is) a very strong female character although not always necessarily a role model. The early stories lacked cohesion and were littered with pop culture references and soon Tank Girl herself became part of pop culture. But through it all she never really gave a shit (that’s right I speak of her as if she’s real!).

Hewlett has been busy since the Tank Girl film, unfortunately not on Tank Girl. He went off to work on a band of monkeys or something like that (I also love the Gorillaz and the recent rumour about a new album is nearly as exciting as this news).

But now he’s back and with Alan Martin, the other co-creator of the series, so everything is looking rosy for Tank Girl and friends. Although, those who are easily offended may not agree.

Check out the preview art below and the official press release for issue 1.

Kicking ass and probably not caring about names in the 21st century.

Did anyone watch the 1990’s T.V. series Lexx? (Penis spaceship!)

Interesting sound effects (Clunt!) in this example of interior art by Warwick Johnson-Cadwell.
