Tank-Girl-Header

Alan Martin & Jamie Hewlett’s post-apocalyptic punk princess Tank Girl returns to comics this May in a new series from Titan Comics, Two Girls, One Tank. Joining co-creator Martin on art duties is rising star Brett Parson fresh from his breakout work on Vertigo series New Romancer.

The series follows hot on the heels of last year’s 21st Century Tank Girl, which was wildly successful on Kickstarter before being picked up by Titan for wider distribution. The new series from Martin and Parson carries on right where 21st Century Tank Girl left off and finds the eponymous hero faced with the question, “Is this world really big enough for two Tank Girls?!”

Gorillaz Artist Jamie Hewlett Returns to Tank Girl in ’21st Century Tank Girl’ [Preview]

21st_century_tank_girl_feat

Ten years before artist Jamie Hewlett became a global pop culture phenomenon as the co-creator of Gorillaz alongside Damon Albarn, he made his other best-known cultural contribution in the late 80s with writer Alan Martin; Tank Girl. Debuting in the pages of UK anthology magazine Deadline, the rocket launcher-wielding, tank-driving outlaw became an icon of female empowerment and sexual self-determination (and the star of a Lori Petty movie of appropriately debatable virtue).

Tank Girl was largely dormant from the mid-90s until the late 2000s, when Martin returned to the character by partnering with artists including Rufus Dayglo, Jim Mahfood, and Warwick Johnson-Cadwell, Hewlett's musical commitments kept him away from the character for a long time, but now he's finally back for 21st Century Tank Girl, an anthology that also features Mahfood, Caldwell-Johnson, Philip Bond, Jonathan Edwards, and more.

bestofbritish

As a Briton living overseas, I am always delighted to see people from the old country shamelessly milk their Britishness to sell themselves abroad. The more we ham it up, the more people seem to love it, as evidenced by Eddie Redmayne's Oscar win. So it's in that same glorious spirit that Titan Comics is playing up the "Downton Abbey and crumpets" angle for its May comics promotion, Best of British, featuring new and classic works from a roster of creators that includes Peter Milligan, Si Spurrier, Alan Martin, D'Israeli, and the late Brett Ewins. Check out the trailer above, debuting exclusively on ComicsAlliance.

Comics have seized center stage at the venerable British Library in London this summer in an exhibition celebrating the history of British comics and the work of British creators. Subtitled, 'Art and Anarchy in the UK', the Comics Unmasked exhibition places an emphasis on protest, outsider culture, and anti-authoritarian voices.

Curated by Adrian Edwards, Paul Gravett, and John Harris Dunning, Comics Unmasked draws heavily on the British Library's own collection to establish and define Britain's relationship to the comics art form -- stirring up nostalgia, scandal, and some surprising discoveries along the way. And Kieron Gillen's giant head.

Martin And Mahfood’s ‘Everybody Loves Tank Girl': Beautiful Art, Narrative Dissonance

tankgirltrade-1363286054

Everybody Loves Tank Girl is the new Tank Girl book collecting the recent issues drawn by Jim Mahfood and written by Tank Girl co-creator Alan C. Martin. Before getting into things too thoroughly, let's briefly unpack the term "the new Tank Girl," because that's quickly becoming not just a distinction referring to the passage of time, but a term that now encompasses some wholesale shifts in what the character means and how she's been used by Martin the last 10 to 20 years...
