TANK GIRL: THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF TANK GIRL #1, is a comic book published by Titan Comics. It was written by Alan Martin, with art by Brett Parson. It is available to purchase on Comixology for $3.99 or can be possibly found in your local comic book shop.
Okay guys, I am going to be straight up with you. This was my first encounter with TANK GIRL. I was drawn in by the art by Brett, and the first couple pages seemed good….then the crap hit the fan.
I am talking blood, bullets, dismemberment, crude humor, and more blood just everywhere. So with that being said, I do not recommend this for anyone looking for an all-ages comic.
However, if you like all of that stuff I mentioned before, and are already a TANK GIRL fan, then you should totally check it out. I believe that you will find it only adds to the preexisting lore you are a fan of. I can also say that Titan Comics generally never fails to deliver. This series will not disappoint.
Now on to the official synopsis:
Tank girl and the gang are back, in this, the first of four brand-new, epic, stand-alone stories!
In Tank Girl Strikes Again, our anti-heroes try to pull off their biggest caper ever, but, thanks to Booga’s gormless plotting, they barely escape with their lives. This is Tank Girl on true classic, chaotic, idiotic form!
Well, there isn’t much that I can add to that. The plot goes a little something like this: an old pirate guy comes back from appears to be a prison. He learns from one of his jails mates of a big score, the entire wealth of the mate’s former employer.
Tank Girl and her squad literally storm the beach. They open fire and that’s when the gory mess ensues. Tank Girl gets captured in the assault, and the rest of the story involves a plan to get her back while also trying to land that score against the “bad guy” in the story.
This comic is chaotic, idiotic, and everything that you can expect it to be.
With that being said, I wanted to reinstate that I really liked the art style. Brett Parson should definitely be recognized for his efforts in the book and in all of his other bodies of work. I will be following him closely to see if he does anything other than TANK GIRL, but I am not crossing my fingers any time soon.
I give the art a 10/10 caps, but as for the comic as a whole… I honestly can’t give one. It’s good, and if you are into Tank Girl then you will think that it is a worthy continuation of the story.
