Official Press Release

What’s bald, and smelly, snogs kangaroos, wears shoes that don’t fit and a bra that’s too tight (and knickers that need a good wash), smokes, drinks, and fights too much for her own good… and has her original stories, now available digitally for the first time via comiXology and iVerse?

You guessed it! TANK GIRL!

Titan Comics is delighted to announce its partnership with comiXology and iVerse for the release of Jamie Hewlett and Alan Martin’s Classic Tank Girl stories on the iPad, iPhone, Android devices, Kindle Fire and the web.

First appearing in Deadline magazine, the anarchic series follows the adventures of Tank Girl and her mutant kangaroo boyfriend, Booga. 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!

As well as releasing stories from her early years, Titan Comics is building the complete Tank Girl digital collection, starting with Martin & Rufus Dayglo’s Bad Wind Rising. Described by Aint It Cool as “possibly this year’s coolest comic", Bad Wind Rising sees Tank Girl and Booga, her partner of 22 years, split up! This tragic news was announced exclusively in KO! magazine - see here. Check out this teaser trailer for the series.

To keep up to date with new digital releases follow @TankGirlComics on Twitter or visit Titan Comics’ digital website, here.

Tank Girl is available to read via comiXology and iVerse now – perfect if you want some shiny bollocks to show off on your new IPad retina screen!

Pure Tank Girl. Pure Genius. Puerile Entertainment.

About Tank Girl
Her real name is Rebecca Buck, but this is very rarely mentioned. Her first words were "cauliflower penis". She was a tank pilot, working as a bounty hunter, before shooting a heavily decorated officer, having mistaken him for her father, and failing to deliver colostomy bags to President Hogan, the incontinent Australian Head of State, resulting in him publicly embarrassing himself at an international trade conference. These events resulted in Tank Girl becoming an outlaw with a multi-million dollar bounty on her head. She is prone to random acts of sex and violence, hair-dyeing, flatulence, nose-picking, vomiting, spitting, and more than occasional drunkenness.

About Booga
A mutated kangaroo, and Tank Girl's devoted boyfriend. She met him when he snuck into her tank to pinch a pair of her knickers. He follows Tank Girl everywhere and does, by his own admission, whatever she tells him. This includes murder.
