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

Band 1 war richtig gut, ein spassiges, abgedrehtes, gewalttätiges und rebellisches Aufbegehren gegen Comickonventionen.

Leider schließt der hier vorliegende Band 2 nicht daran an. Die Autoren haben hier scheinbar mehr mit Drogen und Alkohol experimentiert als die Protagonistin, und heraus kommt ein total zusammenhangloser Haufen völlig wirrer Textbausteine, verknüpft über bunte Bildchen. Weder besonders witzig noch hübsch anzuschauen, bleibt das Fazit, dass man besser nüchtern bleibt, wenn
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 wha

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. I found the trip down strange lan
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. Shifting even more heavily between pop culture formats (elements of Jack Keuroac, Yogi Bear, Starsky & Hutch), the second volume is more readable pannel to pannel, with its still ribal ...more

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. More jibes at their employers of the time who wouldn't let them move on.
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.
Still plenty of bum, poo and willy gags. Just darker bum, poo and will

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.
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.
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.
Paul Heaton
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.
Not as fun and whimsy as the first. Much more psychedelic. Not enough Tank Girl, with stories that barely feature her or not at all. I did enjoy the Kerouac story and the "Joy of" series.
I didn't like this edition as much as the first one. I feel like either the writers were giving up or way to lit. I hope the next edition is better.
this broke my heart. they should have just left her awesome without the limp, pointless writing and not as awesome art.
Fire, blaze me away into this verical world of beer, drugss, artillery, and exemplary rough language!
5 stars for the art, the stories vary from 3 to 4 stars..the same can be said for all 3 of the collections
I just couldn't get into it.

my favorite quote: "Shake well before reading"

Won't be reading this till I'm done with all my summer reading crap.
Phoebe Macdonald
Not as good as the first volume plot-wise, but still enjoyable.
Cynical, anarchic, surreal and very, very funny.
Sam McCanna
Love 'em! Will have to re-read them again!
Carolee Wheeler
Amazing art; non-linear, nonsensical story.
a must for Gorillaz fans. period.
And then there were two.
