The eponymous character Tank Girl (Rebecca Buck – later revealed to have been born as Fonzie Rebecca Buckler) drives a tank, which is also her home. She undertakes a series of missions for a nebulous organization before making a serious mistake and being declared an outlaw for her sexual inclinations and her substance abuse. The comic centres on her misadventures with her boyfriend, Booga, a mutant kangaroo. The comic’s style is heavily influenced by punk visual art, and strips are frequently deeply disorganizedanarchicabsurdist, and psychedelic. The strip features various elements with origins in surrealist techniquesfanzinescollagecut-up techniquestream of consciousness, and metafiction, with very little regard or interest for conventional plot or committed narrative.

The strip was initially set in a futuristic Australia, although it drew heavily from contemporary British pop culture.
