Tank Girl ONE by Hewlett & Martin
Tank Girl is a British comic set in a future Australia. It all feels very distopian. Much of the references made refer to 1980's British pop culture. I find it somewhat funny when a book set in the future refers to the creators present era. For this reason, the book is pretty dated which again, isn't a totally bad thing.
Despite my lack of interest in reading the rest of classic Tank Girl, the series continues on with new writers and artists to this day and last February released a collected works titled "Everybody Love Tank Girl". While I could sit down and appreciate the odd occasional issue, sadly I have to say, I'm not in love. I could never sit there and read issue after issue.
