On a mission to save their favorite radio store, Booga somehow manages to release the gang’s evil counterparts who are lead by Anti-Tank Girl. Needless to say all hell breaks loos as the gang has to draw upon their messed up powers to save the day. The question is will they be able to or is it sayonara for Tank-Girl and her gang? And what will happened to the radio store? You’ll just have to keep reading to find out!
Originally created by Martin and one half of the critically-acclaimed virtual band Gorillaz, Jamie Hewlett, this series has Martin teaming up with newcomer artist Cadwell who does an excellent job illustrating Tank Girl. His art reminds me at times of a psychedelic meets punk art form and it meshes well with Martin’s maddening, and extraordinary scripting. There are times when what’s going on might not make any logical sense, but that’s the point. Tank Girl makes sense in its bizarre and surreal way. This is a comic that readers who are looking for the unique, strange and excellent should pick up.
