    Description

    Jamie Hewlett A1 #6 Cover Tank Girl and Booga Original Art (Atomeka Press, 1992). Oi! The anarchic adventures of Tank Girl and Booga made them instant smash-hits with the British Underground Comics scene in the 1980s and into the 1990s. And when their adventures were reprinted in the US by Dark Horse, they were embraced on this side of the pond as well! This is a huge cover piece! And rendered in a fairly unusual manner as well! The two main figures are created in ink and watercolor on paper, trimmed to the image edges, and affixed to the blue art paper background. Hewlett has signed in the 14.5" x 20.75" image area by Tank Girl's boot. The top logo is a printed paste-up. The top Tank Girl figure is a printed line-art piece that has been hand-colored. The piece is a stunner from top to bottom, with great little bits like the Band-Aid on Tank Girl's face, and Booga's tattoo of Fleegle from the Banana Splits Club. There are some light creases on the edges, not in the image area. In Excellent condition.
