Turning the clock back to the early years, 'King Tank Girl offers up a veritable banquet of brand new stories: Tank Girl and the gang head to the beach for "Barney Don't Surf"; they explore the expensive world of Wellbeing; and Tank Girl is crowned King of England. And all that before tea time!

Ironically I've always been a massive Tank Girl fan even though I've never read any of the comics. Blame it on my obsession with the Tank Girl movie and the lack of Tank Girl imports to South Africa. Naturally being given the opportunity to read my first Tank Girl made me ridiculously excited and I sped through during a work break. And did it make my week more bearable? Hell yes!
Even though I have nothing to compare it to I've always loved the gutsy Tank Girl and her crew even though she goes on a power trip and almost destroys her relationship with her friends and boyfriend, Booga, at the same time. It's witty, bold and a lot of fun, everything I was expecting a Tank Girl to be. There's a stab at British royalty, Arthurian legends, Four weddings and a funeral and even the Jack Reacher books (this version is aptly named Jack Reacharound) The main story is alternated by two others -- the story (or stories!) of how Tank Girl, Jet Girl and Sub Girl met and a surfing themed 60's story which sees the gang transported to California.
I have a lot of respect and admiration for graphic novel artists. Alan Martin is once again responsible for the stories and the artwork is by Brett Parson. Both are brilliant and Parson captures the Tank Girl essence perfectly. Comic fans will love this and even if you're not, Tank GIrl might just be the one to win you over. Highly recommended and so much fun. Just what we need at the moment!
