The Way Of Tank Girl celebrates Tank Girl’s 30th Anniversary

Tank Girl is one of those characters in comics that illustrates that the rules of continuity and plot don't have to be completely rigid.

Comic Lover’s Wife: Libraries And Comics

We love to adventure and every once in a while you can catch one of the museums or colleges doing a comic book exhibit. While I was browsing, I was really surprised at just how many colleges and larger public libraries have a comic book collection.
