Tank Girl drives a tank which is also her home. Declared an outlaw she embarks on a series of misadventures with her boyfriend Booga, a mutant kangaroo. Tank Girl quickly became a cult classic in the 1990s and it has had a whole host of reincarnations over many years, the most recent being 21st Century Tank Girl. Join us to celebrate the publication of its paperback edition with its stellar line-up of creators, Alan Martin, Jonathan Edwards and Warwick Johnson-Cadwell – all in conversation with Chris Thompson. family

Award-winning artistic chameleon and Marvel Architect Stuart Immonen began his comics career in 1988, and he’s OTHER ACTIVITIES worked for most of the industry’s major publishers, including Marvel, DC and Image in the quarter-century since. During his decade-long tenure at DC, in addition to writing and pencilling Adventures of Superman, Stuart illustrated the critically-acclaimed mini-series Superman: Secret Identity. For Marvel, as well as 2011’s Fear Itself event, he has drawn such high-profile series as Ultimate Spider-Man, The Mighty Thor, The Incredible Hulk, The Avengers and the cult favourite Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E. After joining forces with Mark Waid to inaugurate Marvel’s digital Infinite Comics line, in the Marvel NOW! era, Immonen launched All-New X-Men and All-New Captain America. His creator-owned credits include collaborations with Kurt Busiek on Shockrockets and Superstar, and with Kathryn Immonen on Never As Bad As You Think, Moving Pictures and the recentlycompleted Russian Olive To Red King.

This event introduces us to the world of Japanese Shojo (“girls’ manga”) in the company of one of its major creators, Akiko Hatsu. In the 1960s Shojo was seen as a low form of manga, but as a result of the pioneering work of creators in the 1970s such as Hatsu, it is now a cultural genre to rival literature.
