Tank Girl: Bad Wind Rising
Writer: Alan Martin; Artist: Rufus Dayglo

Tank Girl: Bad Wind Rising is a naughty bit of chaos. The dirty words and wordplay and suggestive, frenzied, and loony-yet-detailed art are kind of nasty in a beautiful way. And funny. I mean, the jokes are so rapid-fire that the plot, characterizations, and even the sci-fi setting take a backseat to finding the next visual nugget.
But amid the chaos is ultimately some direction and is pretty easy to follow, even for newcomers to the Tank Girl character. A split-up between Tank Girl and her boyfriend, mutant killer kangaroo Booga, is just the iceberg's tip of a weirdly expanding plot, rife with super-science and over-the-top comical violence.
Not the kind of work that you'll find yourself thinking about much after the fact, but a funny, enjoyable oddly sexy read while it's in front of you (titanmagazines.com/graphic-comics).
