21st Century Tank Girl - Signed Kickstarter Exclusive Edition



In stock



The original Kickstarter edition published in 2014 by Action Alley, Berwick upon Tweed.

Signed by the author Alan Martin on a tipped-in sheet printed to look like a school library card.

From the Kickstarter:

I'm Alan, writer of the series, I co-created the character with artist/director Jamie Hewlett. Jamie is now properly world famous as being one half of the team behind the virtual band Gorillaz.

This is my project.

The goal is to create a brand-spanking-new, 100 page, hardback Tank Girl book. It will feature artwork from seven different artists (some Tank Girl veterans and some new chaps), and will be written, edited, and designed by me.

This will be a truly independent venture, side-stepping the publishing industry and distribution networks, to deliver a product straight into your hands, direct from the creators.

The confirmed artists on this project are - Jamie Hewlett, Brett Parson, Warwick Johnson-Cadwell, Philip Bond, Jim Mahfood, Craig Knowles, and Jonathan Edwards.

The book will feature two different cover designs, both drawn by Jamie Hewlett - one on the hardcover (case), and one on a wrap-around dust jacket. The latter cover will only be available through this Kickstarter, this will be your one and only chance to buy the book in this form, when the Kickstarter is over, the dust jacket comes off!

The book will be crammed full with a chaotic mix of short comic strips, poster pages, poems, longer strips, an illustrated text story, and much more.

You'll discover what Tank Girl's real name is in the story "The Name of Tank Girl" (clue - it's not Rebecca Buck)

You'll learn tactical tank manoeuvres and vital post-apocalyptic survival techniques.

You'll see Tank Girl explore new worlds in her slightly phallic rocket ship.

And you'll finally find out what Tank Girl keeps covered up with that Band-Aid.

The book will be A4 sized (297mm x 210mm), a much larger format than the standard American graphic novel, to better display the fabulous artwork from our crack team of artists.

I'm totally over-excited about the line-up of artists: Jamie hasn't drawn a comic for more than 15 years, and hasn't drawn a Tank Girl strip since 1996! Readers of the original run of comics will recognise the name of Philip Bond, who worked on Tank Girl with us back in the Deadline days, and has gone on to be a regular artist for DC Vertigo. Two recent Tank Girl artists, Jim Mahfood and Warwick Johnson-Cadwell, will return to inject TG with their diverse and radical stylings, and brilliant Brit illustrator Jonathan Edwards will finally get a turn at drawing TG, after originally being slated as artist back in 1996, only to see the Tank Girl publishing empire collapse before he had a chance. The list is topped off with two excellent artists, both new to Tank Girl, who have been setting my blog and the Tank Girl Facebook page ablaze with their incredible artwork - Craig Knowles and Brett Parson (aka Blitzcadet).
