Fittingly, the strip drew, and continues to draw , stylistic influences from punk visual art; so pulling Dee Dee Ramone through a vortex and into its post-punk apocalyptic world was a natural progression. One that was instigated by present day Tank Girl artist and co-conspirer, Rufus Dayglo. What else could he be driving in this race but a rocket propelled VW with a pickelhaube on top?
We asked for permission to include Dee Dee in the book, and soon after, it was granted! Printed in black and white and blue! How did the idea to interpret Dee Dee as a skater in the storyline come to be? I could imagine him trading a skateboard for a switchblade knife!! So where did this all begin? At the pub, he tried on my jacket, and when I took it off, he saw my tattoos and freaked out, they are of comic book characters, in panels. We sat and talked tattoos, comics, knives, UFOs, and bollox…he was very funny, and liked to tease—kinda like a kid!
That seemed to be the best job in the world. Being in this incredibly cool band, and getting to yell…. The Ramones have always been my first love, and Dee Dee my favourite. When I suggested it to Alan, the writer for Tank Girl, he was excited, and found it funny! We were both really into the idea…of both doing a tribute, and making our favourite Ramone a comic book character. I was right up the front, and he pulled me onto the stage.
It was a childhood dream come true…yelling 1,2,3,4!!! They made a fine racing team in their blood red rocket VW! We included lots of little touches we thought Dee Dee would like, switchblade knives, skateboards, and a German army helmet with Dee Dee across the front. Both Alan and I are huge Ramones fans… and Ramones fans are an international brudderhood…so this is our little tip of the hat to Dee Dee, the Ramones, and all the Ramones fans. Gabba Gabba love!
