    One thought on “Tank Girl: The Odyssey”

    1. If I'm forced to read aloud every line to whomever is around to hear, and even recount some of the events like a 10-year-old because they're so clever and funny, then I guess it wins.

    2. I enjoyed Tank Girl: The Odyssey immensely. That's all I can really say for certain of this very weird, very fragmented, comic reading experience. It is an experience. A ride. A journey. An odyssey! If I had to pin down a core, recurring element of this wildly fluctuating spectacle of a book, it would probably be mania. Sheer, undisturbed, persistent mania. The book runs on pure energy, and doesn't skip a single beat in churning out joke after joke, gag after gag, scene after scene. The pacing i [...]

    3. I think my title sums up my thoughts on this latest outing for TG and the gang. Riffing off Ulysses and every other rendition of Homer's Odyssey the writers could think of, TG: Odyssey sees the usually jumbled and non-linear TG take a direct, structured approach for once. At first I worried there might be a loss of energy as a direct result of losing the freeform style of the original strips, and of course this is a graphic novel rather than a collection of serial strips so the energy *has* to b [...]

    4. Mmmmeh. This is my second Tank Girl, and I came away feeling much the same: whatever. It looks great on (figurative) paper: 1990s, Australian riot grrrl, influenced in equal parts by Mad Max and gutter punk (or maybe I mean crustie) aesthetics. Yo, I'm down with all of this in theory. I'm also down with clever classical references to Odysseus et al. - which this book has loads of - and with smug/clever fourth-wall breaking. But, in practice, actually reading it, I was just like meh.One good thin [...]

    5. I loved this one. This book is a perfect combination of intellect and shite, and I mean that in a positive way. This book is not for the faint hearted. This book is vulgar, but delicious. There are a ton of literary references in this book, not only to the oddysea, but also for example the rime of the ancient mariner, and other classics. This book is for everyone who likes to read something smart, but also likes to go on a trashy ride once in a while, because those two do not exclude each other. [...]

    6. I shouldn't need to have read Joyce's Ulysses to understand a Tank Girl comic. But it turns out Joyce's obsession with piss and shit and food is a perfect fit for the punk icon. The art is gorgeous and the dialogue is full of quotable bits and Joycean puns. It's still a bit up itself, and some of the meta shit doesn't fit with Tank Girl's "fuck everything" attitude. But somehow, Tank Girl: Odyssey kinda works.

    7. This book was laugh-out-loud, slap-your-knee, kick-your-mama-in-the-gut-she-carried-you-in funny. Milligan re-tells the story of Homer's Odyssey and Joyce's "Ulysses" (which was based on the Odyssey) with the Tank Girl crew standing in for the ancient Greeks. It's page after page of blood, gore, sex, drugs, cannibalism, and kangaroos. And a goth band (the Sirens) gets a beat-down! What more can you ask for?

    8. Contaré este compilatorio como otro material literario, el guión es digno de elogio y mucho mejor que la mierda "literaria" que esta abordando el mercado actual de bestsellers.Además del guión, los trazos de Hewlett son otro mundo, uno muybde acuerdo a la historia y los personajes.En especial, The Odyssey es la mejor y grandilocuente de Tank Girl.Y para rematar, el grueso de la novela es un tanto extenso, entonces, sí.La considero como uno más de mis libros favoritos.

    9. Cuatro años después de haberlo marcado, finalmente puedo leer este clásico moderno de Milligan y Hewlett, esta oda a las odas, esta orgía de vanidades, este cacholibro que derrocha glamurrrrrrr en cuatricomía. Y la verdad que está muy bien, pero me hizo reír menos veces de las que esperaba. Aun así, sigue siendo lo mejor de lo (poco) que leí de Chica Tanque.

    10. I didn't know what to expect from tank girl so I dived right in. It was incredibly enjoyable in its gratuitous violence and zany quirkiness. The spin on the Odyssey is executed expertly.

    11. This was expertly crafted, but the nihilism was a bit much for me, as is occasionally the case for me with Milligan's work. Certainly worth a look!

    12. The first reeeaaally long form comic that is mostly coherent and simultaneously Hewlett's farewell. Still holds up after all these years.

    13. there is just something rascally about here problem is everytime I read it I want to shave my head and do graffitti.Two things i've really had to cut down on since moving to boston,

    14. One of the best short comic stories I've read. Milligan is really playful with the different versions of the Odyssey and Hewlett's artwork is absolute madness. Wonderful book.

    15. This was my first exposure to Tank Girl. It would've been 3 stars, but so much to surprise and delight in it.

    16. Oh dear, think I'm a graphic novel convertw there really isn't enough time in the world to read all the books I want to read.

    17. I loved this one, it's so funny and wierd. So much girl power, really love Tank Girl she's an amazing character <3

    18. A disappointment, honestly, in comparison to the original works. Some points were witty and good, others fell flat.
