Alan Martin and Rufus Dayglo Signing at Forbidden Planet

rufus_dayglo.jpgAlan Martin and Rufus Dayglo (pictured), creators of Tank Girl Skidmarks, will be signing Skidmarks #2 at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Saturday 5th December 1 – 2pm.

Alan and artist Jamie Hewlett created Tank Girl in 1988 for Deadline magazine. Their anarchic heroine is now a cult icon that has given us strips, monthly comics, graphic novels, prose novels and a Hollywood movie. Rufus Dayglo is now working with Alan on Skidmarks – a riotous, all-new Tank Girl mini-series.

Skidmarks is set in Australia in the near future: a post-apocalyptic, but still rather picturesque wasteland. The former bounty hunter turned outlaw known as Tank Girl spends her days drinking, fighting and getting up to all manner of mischief – until she’s forced to give up her life of semi-retirement and climb back into the saddle to save the life of her best friend, Barney.

This is everything you ever wanted to know about Tank Girl’s schooldays – and everything you didn’t!
