Book Description

Nov. 1 1998
Bulging muscles, immense jaw, and a battle cry of "Spoon!"--it's none other than The Tick, a strange and seemingly invulnerable force for good in the world. A thoroughly enjoyable parody of superhero comics, this book offers a complete re-telling of all The Tick's adventures in The City. Color illustrations throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Collection of The Tick Feb. 13 2000
Even if you do not like comics, you will enjoy this. It tells the tale of a mysterious blue stranger who breaks out of a mental asylum to fight crime. Joined by his sidekick Arthur, the duo face many strange people and adventures in the good fight. Reprinting the orginal series' 1st 6 issues, it's an enjoyable, offbeat experience for both kids and adults.Spoon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny, but is it really for young adults? Nov. 22 2002
I was given this as a sort of 'gag' gift, since I was a fan of both the cartoon and the brief live action television show. I will say that this 'graphic novel' contains all the sly humor and off-kilter characters that appeared in other mediums. How can you resist that big blue guy and female characters named 'Oedipus'? Also, the whole ninja component was wonderfully satirical, and I loved Paul the Samurai with his 'killer loaf'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ups and Downs April 16 2010
Firstly I would like to say that I love the Tick. The book is a collect of different stories. The first story is hilarious, the second is boring, the third boring, then they finally get interesting again.

So it has its good with the bad.

I'm not into the comic book scene, but there's something irresistible about the Tick (and Arthur and the others). There's nothing complex about the Tick, and I think that's what appeals to me. You can just sit back and laugh your butt off. Don't miss the spin-off characters who have their own collections, especially Man-Eating-Cow.
