Official Press Release
What’sÂ bald, and smelly, snogs kangaroos, wears shoes that don’t fit andÂ a bra that’sÂ too tight (and knickers that need a good wash), smokes,Â drinks, and fights tooÂ much for her own good… and has her original stories, now available digitallyÂ for the first time via comiXology and iVerse?
You guessedÂ it!Â TANK GIRL!
TitanÂ Comics is delighted to announceÂ its partnership with comiXology and iVerse for theÂ release of Jamie Hewlett andÂ Alan Martin’sÂ Classic Tank Girl storiesÂ on the iPad, iPhone, Android devices, Kindle Fire and the web.
First appearing inÂ DeadlineÂ magazine, the anarchicÂ series follows the adventures of Tank Girl and her mutantÂ kangaroo boyfriend, Booga.Â Jamie Hewlett may have famously gone on to create the visuals for the cartoon band Gorillaz – but this is your first opportunity to experience Hewlett’s fully-formed and gloriously anarchic artistic vision on your favourite computer or tablet!
Titan Comics is releasing these original stories in chronological order as fourteen digitally remastered issues! The first five issues are now available to purchase digitally via comiXology and iVerse, with new selections following every four weeks!

About TankÂ Girl
Her realÂ name is Rebecca Buck, but this is very rarely mentioned.Â Her first words wereÂ “cauliflower penis”. She was a tank pilot, working asÂ a bounty hunter, before shooting aÂ heavily decorated officer,Â having mistaken him for her father, and failing to deliver colostomyÂ bagsÂ to President Hogan, the incontinent Australian Head of State, resulting in him publiclyÂ embarrassing himself at an internationalÂ trade conference. These events resulted inÂ Tank Girl becomingÂ an outlaw with a multi-million dollar bounty on her head. She isÂ prone toÂ random acts of sex and violence, hair-dyeing, flatulence, nose-picking, vomiting, spitting,Â andÂ more than occasional drunkenness.
AÂ mutated kangaroo, and Tank Girl’sÂ devoted boyfriend. She met him when heÂ snuck into her tank toÂ pinch a pair of her knickers. He follows Tank Girl everywhere and does, byÂ his own admission, whateverÂ she tells him. This includes murder.
