    About Tank Girl

     
    In a post-apocalyptic Australia, corruption and survival of the fittest are the pillars of an ultra-violent society where whites, aborigines, and mutant kangaroos survive as best as they can. Among them, Rebecca – nicknamed Tank Girl because she only travels by tank – lives on the fringes of a society she – a young, individualistic girl whose life is a mess – despises. Reminiscent of the sweeping punk culture of the '80s, this underground comic series, launched in 1988 in the fanzine Deadline – a mixture of British comic strips and articles on music and culture – has become a cult favorite.
