Why The Tick?




He is…THE TICK – The Mighty Blue Justice!

With the aid of his loyal – if cowardly – sidekick, Arthur the Moth, The Tick protects The City as he fights a never-ending battle for justice against evil in all its many deviously evil shapes and sizes.

And everyone else gets a good laugh out of the deal.

Like another franchise of the 80’s/90’s – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – The Tick is one of those comic properties that I discovered as a classic Saturday Morning Cartoon with no idea of its real origins before learning of its true beginnings as a small-time indie comic book that was popular enough to find the right people and hit it big.

That it did manage to reach a wider audience is something the world of comics – and the now sadly defunct concept of Saturday Morning Cartoons – is better for.
