Is that the first Tank Girl appearance?  If so, congrats.  Is it Australian, British, from New Zealand, ... ?

British.
Essentially 'first' Tank Girl, but it is a one-pager / rough design.
Reportedly approximately 200 or so copies of this fanzine were created / printed / distributed whilst friends Jamie Hewlett, Alan Martin and Philip Bond were attending art school in 1987.

Wish CGC slabbed books this size so I could return to the Tank Girl registry with a vengeance.

why wouldn't CGC slab that?

I mean they slab all sizes that fit in a slab, up to magazine size....

Am I missing something?

excuse the photo / lack of size comparison
This is a 'Life Magazine' top loader, MyLite 4, and backing board with a sheet of archive paper behind the front & back covers.
Unfortunately, once received by CGC they explained that it was just outside the limitations of a magazine submission.
They did press and clean it for me though...

I wonder how big the demand is for Treasury-sized CGC cases?  There’s a bronze-age Treasury appreciation thread that gets a lot of love.  There are a number of photos there of NM++ copies that would look super cool graded.  Could you imagine the weight of a box of them?  

they would be way to bulky and heavy , and a small fortune just to ship them safely ... so i don't see it happening 2c

I don't see it happening either...BUT...think of the untapped potential for registry points (and record eBay prices for treasury editions if they did).
And the byproduct? A new revenue stream for CGC.
I'm sure a cost analysis has been performed internally and currently it isn't financially viable.
