    One thought on “Tank Girl: Apocalypse”

    1. After watching the movie, I had to read the graphic novels, but unfortunate for me, even at age 16, I didn't know how bloody expensive graphic novels were! So I bought the only "Tank Girl" on the shelf at my local comic book store. $20. Are you serious? .sAnyway, upon buying the book, I felt stupid for using my last 20-dollar bill on such a silly thing. My parents chided me and I felt dumber, but not totally regretful. I read the friggin' thing because I bought it. And you know what?I lurved it. [...]

    2. If you're familiar with Tank Girl, you know that she's far from the motherly type- despite hints early in the series that she'd eventually get knocked up. A girl who wishes for the world's biggest can of lager & spends her time shooting things with her tank just doesn't really sound like a great role model for a baby. Too bad for her that destiny has other things in mind.Booga knows something's wrong when TG refuses her morning brewski & when she isn't cheered up by blowing something up [...]

    3. Is it wrong of me to deeply prefer the Hewlett penciled early issues? Pritchett lacked the little snide details I'd come to love and appreciate, and his characters were much less expressive, too simple. It brought home (for the billionth time) how deeply art and narrative rely on one another in comics. That was my main beef. Also, pregnancy squicks me out; seeing Grant's take on Tank Girl's was simultaneously terribly gross and utterly defanged.

    4. Decent origin story for the 'roos. Somehow this was one of the more coherent story arcs (not that it's saying much) with much hilarity, carnage, protuberant eyes, sweaty grins, and gunfire added to the already potent mix of politics, the concept that each and every politician and world leader is not only evil, conniving, greedy and self-centered but also a disciple of the blood-god Baal and deliberately triggers Armagaeddon as an act of worship, asteroids, Godzilla, Hitler, Mars bases, and pregn [...]

    5. I loved it as usual haha. Tank Girl is awesome. I didn't give a full 5stars however because I felt it wasn't quite tank girl as tank girl should be. Apocalypse was a lot more organised than what Tank Girl should be. that is also obviously due to having two completely new authors. however I still felt like I was in the story and it was admittedly somewhat refreshing to read a full continous story. I loved the idea of a tank baby and how at times tank girl herself becomes slightly softer in nature [...]

    6. Hah! Tank Girl is preggers in this one! I really enjoyed the art and coloring, but the inking wasn't as impressive as volumes 1-3. There are 2 stories, the first longer one that was initially 4 issues (covers are in the back), and a second shorter one off that's like a "Legend of Tank Girl" tall tale. This volume and The Odyssey, over the others (1-3), are your best bet if you're a first timer to the world of Tank Girl, since they have actual story lines & plots. You get a better sense of th [...]

    7. I've got to be honest I was rather disappointed by this given the reputation it has for pushing boundaries and causing controversy. I don't know what I was expecting but it certainly wasn't something this crude and loutish, I knew it was graphic but there didn't seem any meaning, thought or depth beneath it, which for me was a bit of a disappointment. The illustrations are good and the story isn't bad but to be honest I'd give it a miss unless you're already a fan of the series.

    8. Funny, offensive just what you want from a Tank Girl story. The end of the world is coming, mostly due to power hungry, religious fanatics who goes to war with basically everyone.Does Tank Girl care, no she's off the booze, the sex and the drugs!!!OH NO!!!Is our anarchic, couldn't give a rats ass, heroine truly ill, losing her mind or is she up the duff with the coming messiah that could save the world.It's a crazy and bumpy ride, grab a 6 pack and get ready for Tank Girl!!!

    9. It's been a very long time since I last read any Tank Girl, but I do remember the whole thing being more insane and disordered than this volume. For that reason this is a good read for TG newbies (as long as you can just accept the fact that her boyfriend is a mutant kangaroo) because it reads with a linear narrative - TG getting pregnant and promptly giving birth during the apocalypse, together with a drugged up Richard & Judy paradoy. Love it.

    10. Pritchett's artwork leaves much to be desired, coming across as sloppy if anything. Worth a read if you're a TG fan, and possibly if you're a newcomer to the series as Grant provides a rather simplistic and watered down narrative compared to earlier tales. Unfortunately this story pales in comparison to the earlier issues' hilarity and anarchy.

    11. Boring, loutish, unfocused. I know Tank Girl is famous, but why? Curious to read more, but didn't enjoy this.

    12. Technicolor ultra violence, adolescent anarchy, and 90s conspiracy theories. What else do you need from a comic?

    13. I actually enjoyed this one because it made sense it is by a bigger publisher.is is Tank Girl spiffed up and spit shined!

    14. Thi$ i$ an appalling abomination. Why they cho$e to re$urrect thi$ fanta$tic character without her creator$ i$ anyone'$ gue$$.

    15. I mean it's Tank Girl, you cant really go wrong. I think that I am going to start giving this out at every baby shower I go to (she gets pregnant in it)!
