Titan Comics are to serialise the Kickstarter-funded  Smash Hit 21st Century Tank Girl, starting in June 2015.

After a break of more than 20 years, artist extraordinaire Jamie Hewlett has returned to the iconic character which made his name, which he co-created in the late 1980s with writer Alan Martin, first appearing in Deadline magazine.

Tank Girl quickly became a household name and revolutionized British comics industry and 21st Century Tank Girl, which received over $350,000 in crowdfunding through Kickstarter, reunites the two collaborators for all-new original material.

Titan will publish 21st Century Tank Girl as a three-issue mini-series written by Martin and illustrated by a stellar line-up of stalwarts and newcomers including Philip Bond (Kill Your Boyfriend), Jim Mahfood (Miami Vice), Brett Parson, Jonathan Edwards, Warwick Johnson Cadwell, Craig Knowles and more.
