So if there ever was going to be a new Tank Girl series, I would want Jaime Hewlett doing the artwork and Alan Martin writing it... right... Well if Jaime cant draw it, then damn it, Im putting my hand up... anddddd I am.
In may IDW publishing will be putting a new Tank Girl series written by original creator Alan Martin and illustrated by me. Tank Girl is a major part of my wanting to be a comic book artist, so Im super happy to be doing this with Alan.
Tank Girl will have a different look, and this is what Alan Martin has to say about :
Here's the emerging new look for Tank Girl. We were concerned that she didn't make her re-appearance in the same, tired old clothes that she bowed out in some twelve years ago. What was alternative, upsetting, anarchic, and just plain odd-ball back then has since become common place. Mainstream media smothers us daily with punky chic, and modern day babies can be seen sporting spikey hairdos and Travis Bickle T-shirts. The uniform of the cultural revolutionary has been sold to The Man.
So how to rebel? How give the finger to the fashion fascists?
Normal is the only way ahead.
Dress like a high school teacher from the mid-eighties, or pick clothes from your boring aunty's wardrobe.
The only way left to rebel is to dress like you're not rebelling.
We hope to bring a whole different flavour to Tank Girl, as she borrows ideas from past cultural reference points (Fay Dunaway in Bonnie & Clyde, anyone?).
Obviously she will still fart, drink too much, and shag a kangaroo.

Need I say more, nope...
