After a hiatus that took two decades to break, co-creator, and amazingly extraordinary artist Jamie Hewlett has decided, it was time to return to the origins. He is re-adopting the iconic and quite controversial fictional character that made him outstand through the years, Tank Girl.

Tank Girl was creatively co-created by both Jamie Hewlett and writer Alan Martin in the late 80s. The title quickly took by storm last the comic book universe by becoming one of the most influent household titles printed by Titan Comics while revolutionizing back then the British comics industry. Controversy, provocative artwork, almost far too thoughtful cover artworks combined with a freakish punk, anyhow anarchist attitude made of Tank Girl a trademark to take into reflection, an illustrative form of uncontrollable expression.

21st Century Tank Girl

21st Century Tank Girl sees both creators and masterminds behind the undivided Tank Girl concept, reunite in what will be the publishing of their freshly brand-new original material. A Kickstarter campaign that managed to raise the significant amount of roughly $323.000 US Dollars.

Titan Comics will publish 21st Century Tank Girl as three-issue miniseries written by Alan Martin and penciled by a variety of artistic and uprising newcomers. Names including Philip Bond (responsible for the artwork of Kill Your Boyfriend), Jim Mahfood (Miami Vice), Brett Parson, Jonathan Edwards, Warwick Johnson Cadwell, Craig Knowles amongst others will bring a richer approach to Tank Girl regarding illustration.
