I was just wondering why the first appearance of Tank Girl has no graded copies? By its dimensions, I believe it could be graded. Also, I know she is not the most popular character, but almost everything has been graded at some point. So, why no love for this first appearance?

I honestly never heard of it.

btw

How was the comic book series?

How was the movie?

Is it something you recommend?

 

the tank girl movie came out with a lot of hooplah. lori petty was a rising star (if not an actual star) .up until about then.

 

it was naomi watts u.s. movie debut

 

it had ice-T and malcolm mcdowell

 

it was a huge bust with a $6 million box office on a $25 million budget

Tank Girl still has a hardcore following. Its latest Kickstarter successfully raised £174,130 (thats over a quarter mil in USD).

Ive been searching for a HG Deadline #1 for the longest. This is the only one I saw on the bay (or amazon for that matter) in months

Tank Girl's first appearance was not in Deadline no.1

It was in the ultra-rare fanzine Atom Tan

 

Here's a signed copy I sold a while back for about $400

That is an awesome book!

I love Phillip Bond's work (I have some OA from Angel and the Ape and Vertigo Pop London)... and Jaimie Hewlitt... I always liked the Tank Girl stuff...

 

Horrible movie though....
