Anybody Remember Tank Girl?
And no, not the wretched movie version with Lori Petty, the real Tank Girl, that foul-mouthed, punked-out, hard-drinking, gun-toting, tank-driving, nose-picking, establishment-bucking, kangaroo-boinking, kicking, screaming, biting, farting, totally empowered specimen of feminine outrageousness.
Yeah, well, she's back.
In one of those purely serendipitous moments I relish so much and so rarely experience I happened to be wandering through my local Barnes & Noble looking for a copy of...well...a book* and as I turned down the science fiction aisle what should I see but this:
Tank Girl--Armadillo! and a Bushel of Other Stories
And now it is mine!
I don't know yet if it's worth the ten bucks, but hey! It's Tank Girl! And where Tank Girl goes anarchy and ass-kicking are sure to follow and those are good things!
* Okay, dammit, I was looking for a copy of the recently released Dungeons & Dragons Player's Handbook: Roleplaying Game Core Rules, 4th Edition. There. I said it. Yes, I play D&D on occasion. Shut up. It's not a big deal. Leave me alone.
