After a break of more than 20 years, artist extraordinaire Jamie Hewlett and writer Alan Martin reunite to bring all-new original material to Tank Girl! This June, Titan Comics are excited to announce they are serializing the 21st Century Tank Girl Kickstarter.
Tank Girl quickly became a household name in the late 80s, and revolutionized the British comics industry. It’s clear that the story continues to gain attention because the Kickstarter earned over $350,000. Titan will publish 21st Century Tank Girl as a 3 issue mini-series written by Martin and illustrated by a stellar line-up of stalwarts and newcomers including Philip Bond (Kill Your Boyfriend), Jim Mahfood (Miami Vice), Brett Parson, Jonathan Edwards, Warwick Johnson Cadwell, Craig Knowles and more!
For those of you who don’t know, the character of Tank Girl drives a tank, which is also her home. After she makes a serious mistake working under a nebulous organization, she is declared an outlaw. Following that, the comic centers on her misadventures with her boyfriend Booga, a mutant kangaroo.
The Kickstarter states that in 21st Century Take Girl, “You’ll see Tank Girl explore new worlds in her slightly phallic rocket ship, and you’ll finally find out what Tank Girl keeps covered up with that Band-Aid.” It sounds like it’s going to be an exciting read, filled with tons of amusing adventures. 21st Century Tank Girl #1 comes with 2 exclusive Jamie Hewlett covers which you can view below, and is available to order from the April edition of Previews.
