  • Tick Fun Facts!

    ● The Tick was created by Ben Edlund, whose original 12-issue comic run (1988-1993) is a must read for any real fan of the character, as it introduces the Tick, Arthur, Oedipus, Paul the Samurai, Running Guy, Chairface Chippendale, Chainsaw Vigilante, and Barry Hubris (the NY Tick). And ninjas! I reference a LOT of the Edlund plots and characters in my Tick stories.

    ● The original Tick comics were followed by several other series: Tick Karma Tornado (9 issues), Paul the Samurai (10 issues), Man-Eating Cow (10 issues), and Chainsaw Vigilante (3 issues).

    ● In 1997, the Tick bounced back with Eli Stone’s Tick: Big Blue Destiny series (5 issues), which led to the 1998 Luny Bin trilogy (3 issues). The four seasonal specials I did ran concurrently with the BBD and LB series.

    ● The 1999 Tick & Arthur series followed the Luny Bin story, wrapping up a few of its loose ends while also kicking off a brand new storyline that paid deference to Edlund’s original series.

    ● Since Tick & Arthur, there have been a plethora of seasonal specials, as well as Heroes of the City (6 issues), The Tick: Color (6 issues), The Tick: Golden Age (3 issues), and The Tick: Days of Drama (6 issues).
