Artist Jamie Hewlett and writer Alan C. Martin created Tank Girl in 1988 for British music and comics magazine Deadline, generating a vibrant body of work that became a series of top-selling graphic novels. Hewlett went on to mastermind--with Blur's Damon Albarn--the multimillion selling virtual pop group Gorillaz, before teaming up with Albarn again to create a musical stage version of Monkey. Hewlett was named Designer of the Year in 2006, while Martin has returned to Tank Girl with a series of comic books and his debut prose novel.
"THE CREAM OF TANK GIRL is an impressive work for sure. Mostly
impressive because of its display of the mad brilliance of Jamie
Hewlett's artwork. Each page is just chock full of Hewlett's
masterful cartoon work and it puts so much of comicdom to shame.
There is just page after page of beautifully produced material here
and it's breathtaking for someone like myself who is such a huge
fan of Hewlett's work. Any cartoonist or fan of cartoon art would
do themselves a favor by picking this book up as it shows a master
at the top of his game.
It was a joy for me to read and look at. With the publication of WATCHING THE WATCHMEN and THE CREAM OF TANK GIRL I think Titan Books has put out two of the best books about comics I've ever seen." Ain't It Cool News
