This was certainly a case of style of substance.

Admittedly, I had not read a Tank Girl comic before, and this particular tale comes late in the series run. BUUUUUUUT, a quick internet search informed me that the four issues that make up this book are their own 'stand alone' story, so I figured it'd be fine to just jump right in.
