2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mr. David S. Stairs on Feb. 13 2000
Format: Paperback
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!

Format: Paperback
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'.

This book reminds me of a time when I was a child, growing up infront of the T.V. I remember watching in awe at the superheroes and wishing that some day I would grow up to be just like them. Now, by reading this book, it brings back the memories of my childhood and what happy times they were.
You too can recapture your childhood by reading "The Tick: The Naked City". Live life to the fullest, read the book.

I discovered this book and the TV show by accident and boy am I glad! The pseudo-superheroes that inhabit The City are almost as funny as The Tick himself and tend to hinder more than help matters. You'll love all the word plays and obscure references to pop culture that are rampant. I almost assure you that you won't stop laughing the entire time you're reading. SPOON
