The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of WORLD WAR TANK GIRL #1 from Titan Comics. Alan Martin writes, and Brett Parson draws, colors and letters.
Belgium in January (1945) is pretty bleak, and so is the battle to take this particular town. The Americans are barely holding their own until the naked woman starts running around the battlefield. Lo and behold, it’s none other than Tank Girl, somehow displaced in time. Her friends have appeared not far away, and have found their own hijinks. But Tank Girl has found the tank she wants and she’s hell bent on getting it.
Where Tank Girl goes, chaos will follow. And in this issue she’s packing an extra large helping of it. She kicks some serious Nazi butt here, but the Yanks don’t fare all that well overall, and the others don’t see much combat. Tank Girl books are a lot of fun, though, and the art and coloring work give this one the feel of the old WW2 comics.
This looks like the beginning of another cool installment in the Tank Girl story, with lots of adventure, plenty of crazy and, well, I’m sure we’ll find out why they’re in the past sometime soon. This would be a good jumping-on point.
