Somehow I missed the comic and animated series growing up. In college I saw a few episodes of the live-action Patrick Warburton series, which were quite funny. A trip to Half Price Books and I stumbled across this book, and, wow.

Back to the beginning: this book collects the very first six issues (as opposed to the other first six issues?) of The Tick, in all his madness. A great parody of superheroes, as well as late '80s/early '90s pop culture phenomena, such as fast food mascots, rampant commercialism, and -- of course -- ninjas! Meet the sidekick named Arthur! The adventures of Paul the Samurai! Ninja World! This is clever and quite funny.

Have a good read. In the words of the nigh-invulnerable Tick, it's "Keen!"
