Tank Girl

You ever see the movie Tank Girl?

It's not that good in and of itself, but what I found interesting is that watching it suggested to me what the comic itself was like. I kept thinking, "You know, this isn't very good, but it looks like the source material was excellent." I don't know why/how I was able to discern the quality of the comics based on the movie, but it was enough to pique my interest.

Anyway, I didn't pick up much new stuff at the comic shop this week, so I went ahead and grabbed Tank Girl 2 -- the one Tank Girl TPB they had in stock. I haven't read it yet, but flipping through it, it looks like I was right to think that there was a vast improvement in quality from the movie to the comic. (I suppose, technically, it would be a vast decline in quality from the comic to the movie, but I saw the movie first.)

When I get a chance to read it, I'll be sure to pass along my notes about whether or not it holds up to my expectations.
