    If you don't get the brilliance of Tank Girl, I don't think I want to know you.

    I've been meaning to read some Tank Girl for ages. Bill had these ones and dug them out for me. I have to say it wasn't what I was expecting. First of all the most amazing thing about the comics was that they were a mixture of colour and black and white in a single issue. I've never seen anyone do that before! I didn't think the comic format allowed for that. So i thought that was really cool. I did quite enjoy them. I liked the art work style.

I liked how Tank Girl was both an attractive punk and kinda hideous at the same time. The humour just didn't always sit right with me though and I'm not such a fan of vinegette story telling rather than longer narratives. But I am curious enough to read more.

    Tank Girl is chaos. Just pure chaos. And if you expect anything else, you will be sorely disappointed. This second volume is more of a mish mash of drug induced side comics, a couple stories, and lots of lovely art work. There are some gorgeous full page, full color illustrations of Tank Girl and Booga. It is worth those alone to own this book. No, there isn't much of a story, but that's not why I read Tank Girl. Hewlett & Martin's weird sense of humor just clicks with me. Combined with the Tank Girl is chaos. Just pure chaos. And if you expect anything else, you will be sorely disappointed.

    I'd like to say that Tank Girl improves from the riotous ridiculousness of the first of these remastered editions, I really would. But it doesn't so much improve as it changes, expands and warps. These stories are delivered to us from Hewlett and Martin in the thick of the British self-proclaimed psychedelic revival (via ecstasy & acid house), trying desperately to adjust their beloved character from her earlier madcap escapades to ones of a more cerebral (or at least hallucinogenic) nature. I'd like to say that Tank Girl improves from the riotous ridiculousness of the first of these remastered editions, I really would. But it doesn't so much improve as it changes, expands and warps. These stories are delivered to us from Hewlett and Martin in the thick of the British self-proclaimed psychedelic revival (via ecstasy & acid house), trying desperately to adjust their beloved character from her earlier madcap escapades to ones of a more cerebral (or at least hallucinogenic) nature. The results are interesting, but feel just as brainless as before. Tank Girl in this book is still attached to Booga, but there's considerably less beer, less tanks, less explosions, less guns, more swirling colours, more 'historic' pop-culture references (Kerouac, Hair Bear Bunch/Banana Splits, Jimi Hendrix and Starsky & Hutch all surface here while we get less of the earlier contemporary swipes) and more tangents from the established Tank Girl Reality. Naturally, there are drugs, there are half-assed soul-searches (in what appears to be a lift from/homage to a similar issue of Howard the Duck at the start of this book) and there are the requisite 'meta' appearances of the creators alongside their creations. Again, not bad and clearly all in the sense of good, filthy fun, and the addition of a large amount of colour work here really enhances Hewlett's overwhelmingly filled-in artwork. Alan Martin appears to be shouldering a bit more of the writing work this volume, if their in-story dialogue is anything to go by, and perhaps it's his fault that this two-dimensional intercontinental vandal is being shoehorned into the way-out wackiness present here. It does prove a respite from the relentless zaniness of book one, and does suggest the potential to do more, but I'm not sure if Tank Girl's the character to be doing it with. We'll see how book three fares. This edition includes stories from Deadline, the Tank Girl Poster Magazine, an issue of Speakeasy and a short non-TG story from a Comic Relief benefit book. There's about a half-half split between black & white and colour, though the reproduction on both could be better (there are times that the text proves unreadable and it doesn't seem intentional). There are also colour covers from the second Dark Horse TG mini, and what appear to be random pinups from who-knows-where. Alan Martin contributes another entertaining intro, basically laying the groundwork for how off-kilter things get within. The intro is boosted with photos and art that doesn't seem to bear any relation to Martin's words but does a nice job illustrating the time of the original publications (and it's nice to see a photo of an early meeting between eventual Gorillaz co-creators Hewlett and Damon Albarn).

    EDIT: Guys, you don't know how proud I am to have finally finished Tank Girl 2. I've been trying to finish this book -- nay, to get past the first story, even -- for years. YEARS. It's just that the tone's all wrong and there's NO DAMN TANK. Without a tank, what is Tank Girl? Pretty much Reality Bites with a kangaroo.

I've been trying to finish this book -- nay, to get past the first story, even -- for years. YEARS. It's just that the tone's all wrong and there's NO DAMN TANK. Without a tank, what is Tank Girl? Pretty much Reality Bites with a kangaroo. So Tank Girl is in this book and this book is called Tank Girl, but that's where it all ends. The stories here are quite long -- Tank Girl and her friends are in a mental hospital, Tank Girl visits a dying relative, Tank Girl has an adventure with Hewlett and Martin for some reason. There's a godawful story where Booga is a police detective and it's horrible. There are a lot of gags at the expense of the editor of DEADLINE, TG's first home, and I'm not sure what that's all about, but it does result in the only interesting story here, in which Tank Girl loses her job as a cartoon character and has to moonlight as a waitress. That was kind of a funny idea. Oh, and there's one story-within-a-story where Jet Girl talks about that one time she cameoed in another comic. I guess I thought that was also funny, sort of. And I liked cameos by in-world old favorites like Stevie and Camp Koala. And Hewlett's art improves markedly with each story, even while the writing is out to lunch. (Seriously, I don't even know if you'd call most of this "plotted.") But otherwise it's mostly a lot of boobs (one story seems to just be about TG having an orgasm), as noted previously, which isn't the worst thing? But also not as good as actually making a good comic. -- 12/13: The first time I read this, I actually didn't -- I got sort of bored looking for fight scenes, flipped through for boobs and forgot about it. Recently I decided to revisit the series, figuring that as a sophisticated, nuanced older reader, I was sure to get more out of this one a second time around. But no. I got about three pages into a story where Tank Girl and Jet Girl were stuck in a mental hospital (sounds cool, but boring), flipped to a sequence where the creators had a cameo (long, and whatevs), found a place where Booga had an afro, and then....flipped through for boobs and forgot about it. I think the classic amazingness of Tank Girl might be confined to the first book, honestly. The first book has fights and, yknow, tanks (!!) and some boobs too. Tank Girl 2 has more boobs, but for some reason isn't a better book. There's just a lot of sitting around and talking while wearing interesting clothes and questionable hairstyles. I don't want Bushwick -- I want Tank Girl!! Maybe the third book is good? I dunno.

    Ok I don’t have a great deal to say about this one but here is what I do have… This graphic novel is made up of quite a few short pieces and they were way to short! A story would start getting interesting only to be cut short with an ending that was either a big letdown or made no sense to me at all. What I did like is Tank girl herself. She is quirky, isn’t scared of the taboo and has a lot of personality; I have never previously found a character quite like her.

She is quirky, isn’t scared of the taboo and has a lot of personality; I have never previously found a character quite like her. I found the trip down strange lane intriguing and refreshing. The artwork was amazing I absolutely loved it. I found that I spent most of my time studying the pictures more than anything else. The art gave me a lot of motivation and inspiration for my own art. Now as for all the other aspects of the book… well I didn’t like it. I have heard that the first one in the series is a lot better so maybe I might give that one a try (one day).

    Tank Girl 2 4/5 stars This was basically a compilation of different stories and I loved most of them (except for the ones that didn't have Tank Girl at all in them, those are what dragged my rating a bit) But man were most of them amazing -From the first one where Tank Girl is in an insane asylum and some guy is messing with her head. It gave me serious Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe vibes and made me realize how alike they are. -The one with her grandparents and the fountain of youth was my fav Tank Girl 2 4/5 stars This was basically a compilation of different stories and I loved most of them (except for the ones that didn't have Tank Girl at all in them, those are what dragged my rating a bit) But man were most of them amazing -From the first one where Tank Girl is in an insane asylum and some guy is messing with her head. It gave me serious Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe vibes and made me realize how alike they are. -The one with her grandparents and the fountain of youth was my favorite one I loved the vibe and the new characters and how it showed a softer side of such a tough lady -The one where they're hitchhikers and it's very pulp and she murders everyone was cool too The art is gorgeous! There is obviously a lot of profanity, violence, nudity, all that jazz. It's super gritty and you can tell -as it is blatantly stated by the creators- that these guys were on drugs while writing a good chunk of this book. The characters Tank Girl- Ugh I have such a major crush on her I wanna have her babies. Her kangaroo boyfriend is pretty rad too, but such a ditz. Overall: Thanks to my sister Sammy for getting me this. I need more now!

    I am new to Tank Girl. I started, Naturally, with Tank Girl: One. I found it to be a bit crazy and unfocused, but utterly charming. By the end I felt like it had started to "find itself" Maybe the authors felt that too, and then desperately tried to run away from that notion. This collection tries real hard not to meet your expectations or to be seen as anything other than "out there." It almost seems like at times this sabotages their own comic. Also, sooo much of this is "drug trippy." And list I am new to Tank Girl. I started, Naturally, with Tank Girl: One. I found it to be a bit crazy and unfocused, but utterly charming.

    The addition of color to the series does make the art stand out, allowing for more emotion depth to Jamie Hewlett’s drawings. This makes for a more intense comic, but a darker one. The anarchistic spirit and punk sensibilities are still there, but the humor has been tempered. There is rage and disillusionment here, but Tank Girl is relegated to become an observer. She isn’t fighting as hard as she used to, and that's discouraging.

    This episode of Tank Girl see's a short-story format, with snappier episodes. In particular the authors play with meta inbetween and in each story-line. The character is less overwhelming and gives a good chance for development of relationships between Booga and Stevie, as well as with some longer-lived motive, other than I'm angry Ill punch, I'm hungry Ill eat. Again the images live up to a beautiful in the most coarse way standard.

    The artwork is amazing. The writing is terrible and I got to the end mostly drooling over Hewlitt’s visuals and ignoring the text. Maybe the writing was added in to interpret the fantastic art— book was mind numbing and should be read while dropping L.

    A few really good bits smothered in a lot of Gonzo and vulgar and immature sexual innuendos and ultra-violence. Overall it was fun.

    The much (and wrongfully) maligned second volume of the series, swings all over the place conceptually, while maintaining a sticky consistancy. The avowedly slapdash stoner methodology of the creators is even further at the forefront here, and they wind up inserting themselves into the text on a regular basis.

Whats odd (and it's certainly not the only thing) about Tank Girl is that in its' playfulness, its almost as if we are meant to consider the work as a byproduct of the act of its creation.

    Difficult Second album. Hewlett and Martin obviously a bit tired of their dream creation. Jamie Hewlett's style starts to develop/ Growing pains. The stories become darker.

At time of release, it was difficult because the lust for life that burst from the first collection only permeated the first few strip incluede here before turning darker, blacker humour.

    Sigh, they created the best comic in the universe and then they get all post-modern or "meta' or whatever the guys with degrees call it and ruin the whole fucking thing. Oh sure, there's some little ember og former greatness glowing, but mostly the awesomeness has been snuffed out. Thanks for nothing, guys.

    Not a fan of this. While I thought the first volume was okay, this second volume of Tank Girl epitomizes all the most annoying trends in indie comics: constantly breaking the fourth wall, chaotic page layouts, and a lot of plots-about-how-we-haven't-thought-of-a-plot that come off as more lazy than self-aware. I don't think I'll bother continuing with this series.

    Not as good as the first collection, too much weird drug stuff, not enough sex and violence. But the On The Road mock is great.

    The first volume was excellent. In this one, we see the results of the creators doing too many drugs and reading some Kerouac. If that blows your mind, you'll probably love this. Personally, I just left it wondering how the hell they managed to make Tank Girl boring.

    Tank Girl continues to do what she does best--refuse to compromise and refuse to conform. There were stories in this volume that deserved five stars, but there were also stories, that, to my taste, got too trippy. Trippy Tank Girl is cool too, but she's not the heroine I came to see (personally).

    In the second installment of Tank Girl some things have progressed, some have not. Jamie Hewlett's style is exactly half-way developed, and Martin's writing is still as ropey as a bag of old dreadlocks.

    Totally over rated. Jamie Hewlett's artwork hasn't developed yet, still decent but not as great as his later work. The writing is bollocks. Kind of a laugh but dated. The whole thing's kind of cringe, especially the Stanly Unwin rip offs/references/homages whatever.
