Project Description

Inktober 2021 Day #14: (the) TICK. When I scanned the prompt list before Inktober started and I saw that one of the words was “tick”, I knew exactly what I had to do. Growing up, going to New England Comics, I was familiar with The Tick, but I never read the comics until more recently. I did, however, watch every episode of the Saturday morning animated series. It’s zany and fantastic, poking fun at decades of super heroes and super hero cliches in a loving way. To my knowledge, there have been two live action attempts at The Tick, but I have only seen the Amazon Prime one (and it was brilliant). Hopefully I did Ben Edlund’s character “justice” with this little illustration.
