I thought about starting my script from The Tick's origin story, because we never really get into where he came from--except that he escaped from an insane asylum. Here, he meets his creator.
3.1 CUT TO: A small apartment where we can see BEN EDLUND slaving over his drawing board. He looks like he’s sweating and concentrating very hard on the page; his right hand is shaped in all kinds of weird contortions.
3.2: The TICK kicks down the door to his apartment. Edlund turns away from us at the invasive super-hero.
1.TICK: Edlund! I’ve made it!
2.EDLUND: What the--?
3.3: The Tick slaps him on the back while he looks down at the drawing board.
3.TICK: That looks amazing, Edlund! Nice work rendering me.
3.4: The Tick looks down at Edlund, whose face looks like it has just been hit by a mack truck.
4.EDLUND: How. How…are you here?
3.5: Up on the Tick’s smiling face, from Edlund's perspective.
5.TICK: You freed me! Don’t you know that you comics can do anything? You can do anything with words and pictures, Ben!
