The Tick Season 1 (R2) in August
Liberation Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of The Tick: Season One on 20th August 2007 priced at £19.99. Forget Spiderman and The Fantastic Four, The Tick is a square jawed, muscular, bright blue crime-fighting superhero - with antennae sticking up from his head! His one mission in life - fighting crime in a place simply called ‘The City’.
The Tick is an absurdist spoof of the classic superhero, high spirited, frequently obtuse, and prone to quipping odd, dim remarks alongside inspirational speeches. His superpowers include Nigh-invulnerability – which allows him to crash and bang without injury, Super strength – he can bend a steal girder with ease and Drama-power – where The Tick’s powers increase as the situation becomes more dramatic.
The Tick, like every superhero worth his salt, has a trusty sidekick who goes by the name of Arthur (whose voice is provided by ‘The Monkees’ legend, Micky Dolenz) and together they keep the streets of The City safe from a rogue’s gallery of hilariously malevolent villains. Arthur is the brains behind the action, as well as acting as a conscience to The Tick’s impulsive actions.
This two-disc set features 13 episodes.
