Tank Girl Gold #2


tankgirl_gold2_cover_a “Tank Girl! Tank Girl!” Can you not hear them screaming her name on the crennis field as she swings the double ended tallywacker? I can. I can see the dust rising from the field, Smell the sweat and the cigarette smoke. Hear the crunch of bone on bone. I kinda want to be in the stands to watch the inaugural game. No, wait. I want to be in the inaugural game. I think I’d make a pretty great biker. Yeah. I really do. So maybe I just need to find another eighteen people to join me. Anywho..out of my daydreaming now.

Tank Girl Gold is awesome. Epic. Ludicrous even. But then, that’s the whole point of her. Her world is dark and bleak and here she comes with her hair and her clothes and her foul mouth to have some fun. Right now, we all need a little fun, don’t we? That’s why I always recommend Tank Girl to my reader friends. She’s guaranteed to make you laugh.

Now to the second half of this issue, not that I want to really leave crennis, but we must if we want to enter “Safe in Your Spiral Arms.” And you know, if Tank Girl was ever to make a movie, this is pretty much what I would expect. I kinda really want to see Lori Petty in outer space, racing hot rods and starting space brawls.  This part was awesome, not a little thanks to Barney in a pseudo Princess Leia get up.

No matter how you slice it, Tank Girl stories are awesome. They’re brash. They’re full of toilet humor and innuendo. They don’t pull any punches. They’re just…I may be out of adjectives here. I can’t wait to see where the artists and writers take these new volumes. There’s a whole world of insanity out there for Tank Girl to lay claim to. And I for one, can’t wait to jump on the ride.

{PS – yes I know I used awesome a lot. I’ll try to be more original next time.}
