So Titan Comics was gracious enough to send me a copy of The Power of Tank Girl. Now let me just say that this is the first time I have ever read a Tank Girl comic and let me add if the other Tank Girl comic books are like this one I will have to start looking for them. A good target audience for this book would be the people that are enjoying the Harley Quinn comics. Tank Girl is like Harley Quinn but as a teenager and with four other friends who are just as insane as she is. I will add this, it is very much a comic book for adults. There is a LOT of foul language, there is a LOT of violence and there is some nudity. So this is not something kids should be reading. I don’t even think teenagers should be reading this. Certain adults would also find this “offensive”. So this is for certain few that like this type if book. So let’s talk art work. The art is not full of rich bright and dark colors. It’s mainly black and white with some red thrown in for blood. The background color also seem to set the mood of what is going on. And for me adding anymore color would probably rob from this story. Not much to add except that I love the art work in here. It goes along great with the story. Now let’s talk story. Like I said this is my first Tank Girl comic book I have so I’m not quite sure what happened before this book. But I’m not a complete “noob” about her. I DO know Tank Girl is a rough and tumble girl who “don’t take shit from no one”. The ultimate tomboy you might say. What I got was a strong, intelligent (well sometimes) girl that gets in trouble and gets out of it with help from her friends. Oh and don’t touch the tank, she will kill you for that. No, really. So before we get into the meat of the story let me tell you about the characters. They are Tank Girl, Jet Girl, Jackie (aka Boat Girl), Barney and Booga. I will tell you there is one guy and it’s not Barney. Barney is a girl. The guy is Booga and he is actually a dog-guy type person. A lot of the story I just kind of accepted since this is my first time in this world.
Ok so what’s up with the story already? Ok here we go. For some reason Tank Girl and her crew are in a destroyed town. It’s not in ruins, well it is but supposedly because of Tank Girl and her crew. For some reason they pissed off (and maybe pissed on) the local army so there is a million man army after them. The short and sweet is: the tank ends up stuck between two rock upside down, Jet Girl is catatonic, two people are going to find a golden egg, some magic sandwiches appear, they find mystical objects and oh yeah lots of violence. And that is just the FIRST half of the book. This is a collected edition so you get the whole story in one book and Im glad I don’t think I could have waited to see what happens next. I was half way through the book before I took a break in reading it. So what happens with the rest of the book? Well you just have to pick it up and read it yourself.
So why are you still reading this? Go pick up the book. Im not going to be saying anything else now this is all just filler. Nope, still nothing here. No I wont be saying anything else interesting so you might as well get up and go buy the already. Why are you still reading this? Ok then how about a poem, ha fooled you. So have you left to go by the book yet? Why not? I promise I wont be saying anything else useful here. QUICK BEHIND YOU!! Ha, fooled you. If you had left when I told you you wouldn’t have been fooled, right? Ok im going to go eat now. Have fun reading the rest of the this. Even though there IS nothing left. Have a nice day.
