Titan Comics announce ‘Tank Girl: Full Color Classics 1988 – 1989’

by Phil Wheat

30 years ago, Jamie Hewlett (Gorillaz) and Alan Martin created the first Tank Girl comics in the classic black and white magazine, Deadline. And now, as part of Titan Comics year-long Tank Girl 30th anniversary celebrations, they will present those punky, manic, seminal strips in glorious color with Tank Girl: Full Color Classics 1988 – 1989, just as Hewlett and Martin would have liked them three decades ago.

Compiled into six indispensible collector’s comic books, these prestige editions – set for release in April 2018 – come packed with rare and unseen artwork as well as photos from the early days of the Martin and Hewlett partnership.

Said Tank Girl co-creator Alan Martin:

We are exceptionally excited to go back and revisit the roots of Tank Girl. There was no choice to release the comics in full color back in the day, but if we had, this is precisely how we would have envisaged them. We’re also having a great time searching through the archives and finding unseen artwork and photos, which will give enlightening and contemporary context to the strips. This is a whole new light shining on the origins of our comics, just in time for her 30th Anniversary. We hope you will enjoy going back in time as much as we have!
