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. She also shows that comics can be completely fun while spitting in the face of “mainstream culture.” We’ll probably do a better, full article on the character as the 30th anniversary of her publication in the UK comics magazine Deadline approaches, ad may even do a review of the 1995 film that starred Lori Petty, Ice-T and Malcolm McDowell. The current home for Tank Girl is Titan Comics, who is planning a hardcover book, The Way of Tank Girl.
Here is their press release.
