    Word Of The Nerd - Kevin Given May 13, 2016

    The title of this odious opus circled next to her head: Two Tanks, One Girl. In a fierce font that jumps out and hits you right between your erstwhile eyes. The conclusion of this title sees Truck Drivers, an entire army, treacherous Trickery and tantalizing team-ups all in an effort to prevent Tank Girl from getting what she wants. The set up for the next issue promises Twice the action, Twice the fun and Twice the"well, I can't tell you that. Just rejoice oh copious connoisseur of fine funny Books. Read Full Review

    The mom in me was taken aback a bit by the language (thanks Captain America"), but because it's Tank Girl, what else do you expect? It fits. Just maybe not for the younger crowd. For us 'mature' readers, however, it's a real #$%&ing treat. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Kirsty Capes May 18, 2016

    Fans will be pleased to catch glimpses of Jet Girl and Sub Girl, albeit captured in photographs rather than physically appearing in the story. All in all, Two Girls One Tank has all the things you love about Tank Girl in it, but it also hints at a new era for Tank Girl, too. It definitely as something to offer old fans, and is a watertight introduction for younger generations who aren't familiar with the history of the character. Two Girls One Tank has a markedly different feel to it compared to the older comics. But I think that's a good thing for the canon. As the world evolves, Tank Girl and her shit-eating, no-fucks-giving-philosophy ought to evolve too. We've come a long way since Thatcher. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck May 21, 2016

    This is a fun, high-energy series. It's not for kids - there's adult language and some nudity - it's morally dubious, but all in good fun. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Alex Henning May 20, 2016

    Tank Girl: Two Girls, One Tank has given us a good glimpse at the world that Tank Girl lives in. Its also given us a dilemma for her and shown us her attitude. Martin builds a strong lead character in Tank Girl herself, but for anyone not familiar with the property previously, Booga and Barney may come off a bit weaker as leads. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Karen O'Brien May 20, 2016

    "Tank Girl: Two Girls One Tank" #1 is an excellent marriage of story and art. It won't be every reader's cup of tea, but it will definitely appeal to everyone with an inner punk and a desire to see Tank Girl kick ass. Read Full Review

    My only gripe? That this comic wasn't longer. MORE TANK GIRL! Read Full Review

    This could have been the start of something really cool and fun, but it descends into unnecessarily sexist humour that tries and fails to disguise itself as empowering. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Justin Wood May 18, 2016

    And what more should we expect? I've said it before about certain superheroes, but it's even more applicable here when dealing with a counterculture icon; why would we expect the relevance to last forever? The original Tank Girl comics are still great to read, but what was punk in the early 90's just doesn't resonate the same way today, especially when removed from the artists that brought the character to wicked life in '88. Extending Tank Girl's life as property is inevitable I suppose, but disappointing; there are new frontiers in scandal and anarchy to forge and it won't be done in the pages of yesterday's provocateurs. Not that I should have expected any differently, but it's crystal clear now. Read Full Review

    The art is very good, but this book doesn't offer much else of note. I thought that the attempts at humor usually fell flat and the writer relied too heavily on foul/silly language to provide humor and fun (which it generally failed to do for me). The characters are fun. The story is mediocre as it presents a couple interesting ideas but it is largely (but not entirely) shallow and predictable. The art is the only reason I rate this issue a 5.5 (slightly better than OK) instead of in the unenjoyable/bad range. As the art and characters are good, I'll pick up at least the next issue or two and hope the story and jokes improve.
