Old T-shirts, new Rumble cards, Pt.2 of 3rd Day Commandos, and some more thoughts on TG on the screen...
We’ve been busy re-constructing the classic Tank Girl t-shirt from 1990 (based on the Penguin Books’ collection cover from the same year). It’s well-ravey, very early-90’s-Glasto, and everyone we’ve asked on social media seems to concur that we should leave the design as close to the original as possible, including the logo in yellow. More news on that when we crack the design for silk-screen, and get it off to the printers.
Meanwhile… what other products from back in the day would you like to see reproduced? We’re up for having a crack at items that have been long lost, so long as we can source good quality artwork for them. Let us know your TG merch bucket lists!

If you missed the Starter Set, there’s still a few copies of Poster Magazine #18 in THE TANK GIRL STORE.
In the last newsletter I shared Part One of a Tank Girl origin story. That newsletter lost me a whole bunch of subscribers, which I found simultaneously perplexing and amusing! I’d be interested to hear what subscribers would like to see from this newsletter. Anyway, as promised, and at the risk of losing more followers, here’s Part Two of the offending strip - 3rd Day Commandos, “Inside out”…
Here’s a couple more thoughts on the Tank Girl TV show pitch from Margot Robbie’s Lucky Chap (see last newsletter). We’ve still heard nothing from anyone involved. The ongoing Hollywood writers’ strike has frozen any activity we might’ve seen, and will probably continue to do so on into 2024.
I guess the bottom line is that Amazon gobbled up MGM/UA, so Amazon now owns screen rights to Tank Girl. Margot Robbie and Lucky Chap have some kind of endless option on those rights, and they now have everyone’s attention since the incredible success of the Barbie movie.
So the question is - how close to the top of Margot Robbie’s pile of potential projects is Tank Girl…
Remember to let me know your TG merch bucket lists, and what you’d like to see in this newsletter.
