Tank Girl and Booga go hunting for bounty hunters, search
for culinary enlightenment, meet a Swiss yeti, attempt to
cure a deadly genital condition, and rob a popular tourist
with the previous volume, several of the comic strips here
don't actually feature Tank Girl at all. The Immortalist
is a one-page spoof of Grange Hill, while Sub Girl
features in a flimsy excuse to explore another idol from the
writer's youth, Whatever Happened to the Smiths? Tank
Girl's other pal, the booze- and drug-addled Jet Girl, also
stars in her own strip. Hewlett and Martin's Deadline
magazine buddies Philip Bond and Glyn Dillon step in for the
artwork chores on the Sub Girl and Jet Girl strips respectively,
and they also collaborate on Booga's Messiah, which
focuses on Tank Girl's kangaroo boyfriend.
personal favourite strip in this collection is Morning
Glory, which includes some Quentin Tarantino elements
and culminates in a very funny resolution. This is closely
followed by the explosive heist caper, The
Mount Mushroom Massacre,
which features an inventive use for a bouncy castle.
I'm not sure there are any Swiss yeti myths, as it is suggested
in Ball Hanger, but who cares?
we approach the end of Tank Girl's run of adventures from
Deadline, this compilation is slightly slimmer than
the previous two. There is still plenty of the violence and
lunacy that we have come to know and love, though not quite
as much of it as before.
