    Jamie Hewlett Deadline #46 "Tank Girl" Complete 9-Page Story "The Fall and Rise and Fall and the Ship In the Bottle" Original Art (Deadline Publications, 1992). The complete nine-page story kicks off with a black and white, one-page lead-in titled "F*cked up Afro Zombie Babes From Nowhere!", and is followed by the gorgeously-painted color eight-pager "The Fall and Rise and Fall and The Ship in the Bottle!" In the setup, Tank Girl and Booga get fired from this very magazine... in this very magazine. And then the remainder of the tale follows Tank Girl as she gets canned repeatedly from a string of crappy jobs before reuniting with Booga and Camp Koala. Fans of the virtual band The Gorillaz will recognize Hewlett's art, as he was a co-creator of the group. Prime Tank Girl pages are very tough to find and highly sought-after, and such a complete story from the character's height is virtually impossible! The first page is ink over graphite and the rest are all fully painted with some truly lovely gouache work. All pages are produced on Bristol board with an image area of 10.75" x 13.75". In Excellent condition.
