Deadline was a comic magazine published from 1988 to 1995 by Deadline Publications (known as Cardrest Ltd. before the mag's second issue). Lasting for 69 issues - published on a quasi-monthly, 11-a-year basis - it is best known for introducing the character Tank Girl.

Created by Brett Ewins and Steve Dillon Deadline was first published in October 1988.[1] In 1991 Dark Hiorse began publishing a US edition.[2]

The "Tank Girl" strip became popular enough to spawn a film, released in 1995. This was not well received and its commercial underperformance was a factor in Deadline's death in 1995.[3]
