My Thoughts On Tank Girl : The Royal Escape #4

Posted in Comics with tags , , , , , , , on July 3, 2010 by Rnowak

You know I really let most of my comic reading slide while I waited in anticipation for the final issue in Tank Girl The Royal Escape mini series. Out of all the mainstream comics that came out this week (such as Secret Avengers) this was my number one read. I was really chomping at the bit to read this issue and I must say the wait and anticipation  was worth it.

Now for you new readers to my blog/site I covered the previous issues here and here. So if your a new reader or just want a quick refresher feel free to check them out before you read my thoughts on the finial issue.

Ok now that were all on the same page I have to start off by saying I’m really sad to see this mini series come to an end because I really have been enjoying it(as if you guys couldn’t tell). Having said that this issue was the perfect wrap up to the four issue mini series. I was not let down in any way shape or form by it. It didn’t leave you with the what the fuck did I just read four issues of feeling. If it left me with anything it was wanting more Tank Girl! It kept with all the elements that made me enjoy the previous three issues. The scratchy/ sketchy art that just mixed well with the story and just other things  such as the first battle heavy splash page quote by Tank Girl “Time to die, you twats” ( talk about a battle cry I mean “Avengers Assemble” is iconic and all but this has to be up there on that list) , the souffle bomb that turned the tide of the battle in favor of Tank Girl and her friends, and the rotten egg taking out the M.A.B.T.  made this issue just as enjoyable as all the others.

So if you haven’t read this Mini Series yet I would definitely recommend you give it a shot. I know I myself will pick this up in TPB format if it comes out like that(even though I have the single issues to it it still is a must for my TPB shelf).    If you have read this and enjoyed it as much as I have and want more you can go back and read some older Tank Girl stuff ans apparently according to the Tank Girl Blog site(of which you can view here) there is a new Mini coming out this summer so we have that to look forward to.


Tank Girl The Royal Escape #3

Posted in Comics with tags , , , , on May 23, 2010 by Rnowak

so this morning i had the chance to tear through Tank Girl : The Royal Escape #3 and tear through it i did like a kid on Christmas  opening presents in the morning. so with that said  i was not disappointed in anyway in how this issue delivered. in fact i’m now look more forward to reading issue 4.  the only sad thing about reading  issue 4  is that it brings the end to this mini series. so like i stated before i’ll post a total review when the arc is finished but for now  i just had to post an update on how much i enjoyed this 3rd issue.

in this issue some of the best lines that can be written in a comic were spawned out of this issue. for example : “here comes the mother lovin’ army just to put the icing right on top of my fucking happy cake” or ” i will eat your crappy army for breakfast and shit out their dog tags at tea time”. seriously though those are just some really kick ass lines in a comic.  i really loved that icing on top of my fucking happy cake line, one word amazing.  but then again it’s Tank Girl so it’s to be expected.

so anywho check back once issue 4 is released sometime next month as i’ll post an in depth review on this mini series.

Tank Girl – The Royal Escape

Posted in Comics with tags , , , , on May 19, 2010 by Rnowak

ok so i just got caught up on the missing issues of the new Tank Girl mini series put out by IDW Comics. minus the one from today which i have yet to read but will soon. i’ll post a full review when the series draws to an end. so look for it next month. but so far the 2 issues that i have read  it’s not that bad. if you been following the series so far it’s an obvious no brainier to pick up today’s issue or if your a fan of Tank Girl and haven’t checked out the series yet this might be something you want to check out. for your casual reader or if your not to familiar with Tank Girl. you might want to  wait for the trade to come out for this series. but in the meantime while you wait go back check out the previous Tank Girl Comics so you know what your getting into. if you like what your reading then by all means by this series when it comes to trade paperback format. i’m sure your local comic shop will have it in.
