It's like someone had a grocery list laying on top of the comic and crossed off some items. I'm thinking they will press out if I want to get it graded. Regardless, I got a copy!!!! I want to thank everyone for the offers of helping me find one!!!! I really do appreciate it!!! So, with that, I'm no longer offering any of these books up for trade. Thanks again!!

And for some reason, eBay hasn't marked it as paid yet on "my eBay". When I check the Paypal transaction, it says the seller hasn't accepted the payment yet. Anyone ever run into this? I got an email from eBay saying that the sale is confirmed and one from Paypal with a receipt.

I'm hoping this goes through. I've not run into this before.

Anyways, here are the pics.













Congrats on getting your book!! Its looks great!! Its always great to see collectors acquiring their desired prize. 🍻

@kaptainmyke I hope you aren't referring to me. My kids are millennials!!! LOL!! In fact, most of my kids were born before the movie came out. Me, I've always loved the movie and I'm very much enjoying the new Tank Girl comics. I'm late to the show for Tank Girl, but I wasn't actively collecting comics when my kids were in diapers. The diapers kind of took priority. So now I'm getting into TG.

I think another movie is a great idea!!!! Yes, the first one was very campy and corny, but that's what it was meant to be. I'm hoping that they do another movie and make it a big budget one. I think there is a lot of freedom with the characters to really do just about anything with them.

And everyone knows who Ozzy is!!!! My kids know who Ozzy is!!!! The real question is, do you know who Randy Rhoads and Jimi Hendrix are??? Or actually, since we're talking Tank Girls, do you know who Sid Vicious and Johnny Ramone were?

Yes I know who all of those people are. No, I was referring to the millenials who cause the comic book market to go up when a reboot is rumored or optioned, and they lay claim that Post Malone jumpstarted Ozzy's career.

Since we are on the topic of corny, cheesy, and campy - here are some movies that deserve the modern reboot darker take:

Flash Gordon
The Phantom
The Rocketeer

@kaptainmyke I agree that those movies do deserve a remake!!!! I'd love to see what they could do with Flash Gordon with all the technology today!!

As for millenials driving the hype, yeah, it is frustrating!!!! But it is what is. I think we always secretly craved that comics would be more mainstream, but we never thought it all the way through to the consequences. Now we're seeing it!!!

@Hcanes Thanks for that info!!! I kinda figured someone had said something somewhere. Last night, a nm raw got posted on eBay that had a starting bid of $50 or a BIN of $105. I was the first watcher. When I woke up this morning, The copy that I bought had been posted with a $50 start or a $65 BIN. The nm copy already had bids on it and I didn't want to chance losing out, so I bought the second copy at $65 plus $10 shipping. That was stretching my budget a bit, but I can live off of tuna sandwiches for a day or two instead of hamburgers or pork chops!!!

I just got confirmation that the buyer finally received my payment, so I'm breathing a little bit easier. BTW, he has been an eBay member since 2015 and he has a few slabs on auction right now. So it's just the 2 star feedback that I am concerned about. I'm hoping he knows what he is doing and is just now getting started selling on eBay. Time will tell.

The nm copy is now up to $72 with 7 bids and just about 4 days left. So it's already at the max of what was my budget. It ends Wednesday evening. I have a feeling it will pass the $105 BIN that was listed at the beginning. I think the seller will be very happy by the end of his auction.

@Darkseid_of_town Yep, I saw that. I expect slab copies in the 9's to go for $200 minimum in an auction. The 9.8 that MCS had listed at $800 sold that first night/next morning after the announcement by Tank Girl.

@Jesse_O - Glad you were able to get one, Jesse. I was watching an auction for an 8.5 graded one on ebay to see how high it would go, and that one’s up to $132.50 with over 19 hours left.

@esaravo Yep. If anyone has a copy, now is the time to get it graded and sell it!! CGC lists 93 total graded copies with only 18 9.8. This is going to be a book that will be worth money in basically any grade. There just wasn't that many printed. I've looked but can't find any data on the print run size. Even the raw copies of 2, 3 and 4 from that first series are nothing to sneeze at. Tank Girl has always had a subculture following. I never really looked into TG until this year, but I'm glad I did. I really didn't think I'd enjoy it, but I was surprised.

@Jesse_O

I found these- I think a couple might be missing, I'll keep looking if you're interested
I guess the longest story is "Skidmarks"

@esaravo Did you see that the 8.5 ended at $137.05? I thought it'd get over $150. The next one ending is a 9.2 that is already at $325 and ends tomorrow night.

Yes, I almost threw in a bid myself, only because you now have us all watching this book.

Yep, in 1995. But supposedly, this is going to be a different script. However, the creators have not been contacted yet for input. It seems they may not be. They sold all their movie rights to MGM.

So I should get my #1 Tank Girl graded and slabbed? I'm pretty sure it's in the 9s.
I took a break on researching/selling my comics. Maybe I came back at exactly the right time!

If it's in the 9's, this would be the time to get it graded if you are looking to sell it. Last night, I said it was a 9.2 at $325 on auction, it is actually a 9.4. It's still at $325 but ends tonight. Mind you, the movie is just in development right now. If it doesn't get made, then everything will crash like a house of cards. If it gets made, I expect demand will continue to climb until it comes out.

Here is an article from Screenrant

The Tank Girl movie reboot has reportedly found its director in Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, with Margot Robbie producing and potentially starring. In the years since her breakout performance in The Wolf of Wall Street, Robbie has quickly ascended to the rank of a Hollywood A-lister. She now has an acting Oscar nomination under belt from playing Tonya Harding in I, Tonya, and will reprise her fan-favorite Suicide Squad character, Harley Quinn, in 2020's Birds of Prey movie. Robbie is also expected to reprise her role as Harley for a third time in James Gunn's upcoming DC film, The Suicide Squad.

Created by Alan Martin and Jamie Hewlett, Tank Girl is a comic book antihero with a distinctly punk-rock style (including, dyed hair and partly-shaven head) and demeanor who lives in a tank, and makes a living working one-off jobs in a post-apocalyptic world. Martin surprised the character's fans this week when he claimed Robbie's LuckyChap Entertainment banner is developing a Tank Girl film reboot. It appears that is, in fact, the case, with the intention being for Robbie to star in it.

Yes, I am selling. I Googled Tank Girl as soon as I read this post.
What about getting it graded without getting it slabbed? If time is of the essence and getting it slabbed takes a few months, can I get it graded at a con? I know on-site grading is done but I'm not sure if they only more current books.

Well, CBCS is at 4-6 week turn around time right now. You can do a fast pass which will cut that down to 2-3 weeks. Pressing is where it could spend a lot of time if you decide to do that. I THINK CBCS pressing is at 12-14 weeks. Again, that could be cut in half with a fast pass. But honestly, I think even with regular times, you'd be alright. This is all talk, rumor if you will, about a movie. It's been said that Robbie wants to see the script before she decides if she will act in it. If she does, demand will spike even more. But even if this all dies down, a TG#1 graded in the 9's is still going to easily be a $150+ book. There is still a demand for it and this hype is just drawing in more fans.
