I would have liked to see a little more Tank Girl and a little less of the authors. I'm giving them the benefit of a doubt that they were making fun of the various "the creator gets sucked into the comic book" but they did it a little too much. Just didn't like this collection as much. Read full review

About the author (1993)

Alan Martin is the co-creator of Tank Girl (along with artist Jamie Hewlett), and writer of the first three "Tank Girl" graphic novels. He is also the writer of "Armadillo!," a Tank Girl prose novel (also available from Titan Books).
Jamie Hewlett is perhaps has worked on a wide variety of comics projects, including "Fireball" and "2000 AD"'s" Hewligan's Haircut," visual genius behind virtual pop group "Gorillaz," soon to get their own show on MTV UK.

At 5'7" and 150 pounds, Alan Martin was an unlikely future star in the NFL, but that didn't stop him from trying (he had 6 pro tryouts). Alan loved sports, was very athletic, played, watched and thought about sports constantly. Being an athlete played a key role in shaping his life. After giving it his best shot but not making it to the NFL, his career path into hi tech sales began. Throughout the years, golf was the #one sport he continued to play. After searching for a solution to fix his game, Alan fixed it by himself. The solution was so unique and simple, that Alan decided to write a How To book about the method he had invented. Today, 10 years later, the book has evolved into a product line that has expanded and matured exponentially. Alan is in his early 50's, self employed and a full time author and entrepreneur in the field of golf and marketing. He loves what he does. Now when he is thinking, watching or playing golf, he is working.
