Describe Tank Vixens here.....Well, okay. Tank Vixens (working title: Lesbian Foxes In Hovertanks) is a striking example of Porn with Plot. Not so much porn as page after page after entire comic of furry fanservice. You see, in this universe, people fight wars with... FASHION! Well, not so much fashion as fashion-based warfare, which often has the characters running around topless or completely naked. By using 'pose power' the vixens 'can make wimpy male opponents wither, flee or have aneurisms and die.' If that doesn't work then they finish them off with good old fashion ass kicking and heavy firepower. The story focuses on the attempts of the Vole Imperium, a fascist empire, out to conquer the galaxy, and the actions of the Pan Vulpine Coalition to stop them. Centering around main characters Firen Prissy and her lesbian lover Sonya Guildencratz, it follows of the actions of the 101st Tank Crushing Battalion, an armor battalion consisting entirely of lesbian foxes, who are typically all crazy to an extreme that only a comic book could support. The battles are far from conventional tank engagements, as the major of the VIMPs, Udda Von Schteppenschlammer and her secretary, Hilda, face off with the vixens in posing contests, the more racy the better.
The series (and spin-off card game) contains examples of:
A-Team Firing: Subverted by a two-page spread covered with side-notes about the real life improbability of hitting someone in modern battles, while depicting the 101st gunning down voles left and right.
Bad Boss: Udda is known to shoot people not just because You Have Failed Me, but out of boredom, irritation, outright sociopathy...
Bigger Is Better: "Aagh! They've got enormous, all-American breasts! And I have only got tiny little mouse titties!" Somewhat ironic in that Udda is drawn almost every bit as well-endowed as her opponents...
Born Unlucky: Sonya Rosencrantz, Unit Jinx. There's actually a pseudo-science explanation that states her negative "randons" attract good luck around her, for the others.
Cool and Unusual Punishment: Udda forces some captured vixens to watch Barney, and on a later occasion plans something with a tank of walruses. When Udda is captured Cpt. Zeera flogs her, in the S&M fashion, which kind of backfires.
Custom Uniform: Yeah, the outfits worn by the 101st are anything but uniform.
Good Republic, Evil Empire: The Coalition are cheerful freedom loving peoples who express their love for peace through a maniacal obsession with guns and uniforms. The Imperium, on the other hand, believe in centralized authority and unified galactic government. Therefore, they must be stopped at any cost!
Granola Girl: Sonya has a bit of the appearance and traits, namely political, especially in the card game. But it's kind of overshadowed by her dour outlook in the first two issues, and her constant pawing of Firen in the second two.
It Runs on Nonsensoleum: How FTL works in this universe. The ships are able to go faster than light pretty much because the people on the ship think it does.
The Jinx: Sonya. 'Unit Jinx' is her official position. Though it's an inversion in that she suffers bad luck and those around her get good luck.
Kill Sat: Udda's last-ditch plan in the second issue, but due to a strange series of coincidences, possibly from Firen's good luck charm reversing Sonya's randons, it fries Udda and Hilda (harmlessly) instead.
Latex Space Suit: Many of the 101st wear tight-fitting vacc suit liners, with certain parts removed.
Of Corsets Sexy: Why Udda and Hilda invade "Gone with the Wind" world, and due to the laws of fashion war working differently there the vixens have to force Gedda to wear the local clothes, she was the only one skinny enough to fit.
Only Sane Vixen: Firen is pretty sure she and Sonya are the only sane ones in the battalion, at least in the first two issues.
Panty Thief: Udda's first assault on the 101st is, as she admits, a panty raid, with heavy artillery.
Phallic Weapon: One of the exposition bonus pages shows off an array of "standard issue" weapons ranging from a lengthy BFG fired from the hip to a pistol and vibrodagger with a barrel and handle, respectively, that are literally dildos. Oddly enough only the BFG and the relatively innocuous-looking gauss rifle (which fires Armor Piercing Phallic Objects) appear in the actual comic.
Putting on the Reich: The Vole Imperium. On occasion Zeera (German accent) and Gedda (resident psycho) have worn similar outfits, and Major Carrington-Whiplash (CO of the 101st Tank Crushers) has it as her default uniform.
Smoking Hot Sex: After an interrogation session with Udda gone wrong, Zeera demands an ice pack and a cigarette, in that order. While in her profile Karin, who carries a pipe around everywhere, lists that line about "do you smoke after sex?" as one of her dislikes.
