Everybody Loves Tankgirl (Food-One, Alan Martin)

Much like many of the comics I review, this one was one I picked up already knowing that I would like it. I’m going to start making an effort to buy comics that I don’t like just so that I can bash them in reviews (or not, who knows.)

Everybody, including me, loves Tank Girl. She’s one of the most unique characters to come out of the indie comic genre ever. Jim Mahfood (Clerks, Smoke Dog, Grrl Scouts) is one of the most unique comic artists to ever be published. If you’ve never read his books, you need to. His art style is a seamless blend of graffiti and scribblings you’d find on the wall of a punk rock venue and it’s a perfect match for TG

If you’re looking for serious plot that makes sense, this isn’t the book for you. Everybody Loves Tank Girl is a series of short (often times one or two page) mini comics, all of them more ridiculous than the first. It’s perfect coffee table or bathroom reading material. This book has the pacing of a Minor Threat record with the political correctness of a 4chan thread. All in all, this book is worth a read.

The best part was Tank Girl and the Australian Swearing Competition.

Chutney!
