Tank Girl has been around for 30 years now, and Titan Comics are going to give fans something to cheer about. The preliminary details of one of the first books in what the comic publisher has dubbed “The Year Of Tank Girl” is The Way Of Tank Girl, a new hardcover collection set for release the first couple of weeks of the new year.
The Way Of Tank Girl comes from writer Alan Martin and will be featured as a gift book full of Tank Girl’s most personal and bonkers brainwaves, musings and secrets weaponry. Designed as a 128-page hard cover issue, The Way Of Tank Girl will feature a collection of comic panels, poems, covers, and extracts from Tank Girl’s 30-year career. Includes a whole bunch of rare, unseen, and brand new images. This is Tank Girl’s philosophy on life, distilled from her filthiest, dirtiest, stupidest best!

Jamie Hewlett, the creator of Tank Girl, designed the book’s cover. Hewlett is also known for creating the designs of each of the members of the band Gorillaz with Damon Albarn. Additionally, the new book will also feature art by Ashley Wood and Brett Parson, who are behind 2007’s Tank Girl: The Gifting and recent Tank Girl stories including 21st Century Tank Girl and Two Girls, One Tank.
Tank Girl was first being published in comic form back in 1988 through Titan Comics, and the publisher behind the series will also be releasing more of the girl-of-the-moment and her ragtag bunch. The Wonderful World of Tank Girl will feature four new standalone adventures featuring the tank-driving rebel, the first of which you can see below.
The Wonderful World Of Tank Girl is also written by Alan Martin and will feature art by Brett Parson, and will act as a perfect introduction into the world of Tank Girl; for newcomers to the series, as well as old fans. The first of the four-part adventure series will begin with Tank Girl Strikes Again.
“In Tank Girl Strikes Again, our anti-heroes try to pull off their biggest caper ever, but, thanks to Booga’s gormless plotting, they barely escape with their lives. This is Tank Girl on true classic, chaotic, idiotic form,” explains Titan in a press release.
Tank Girl was also adapted into a cult-classic film featuring Lori Petty as Tank Girl and Naomi Watts as Jet Girl. Although Martin and Hewlett are known for speaking poorly of the experience of working on the film, Tank Girl the movie has grown in stature among a small group of film fans.
The Way Of Tank Girl is a hardcover collection scheduled for release on January 17, 2018.
