Item Bio
*The first two issues of The Tick introduce The Tick and tell the story of his meeting-and battle-with The Caped Wonder (aka Clark Oppenheimer), the original super-hero protector of The City! *Source: The Tick: A Comic Book History, The Tick The Luny Bin Trilogy #0

Meet the Tick! He's nigh-invulnerable and on his way to destiny. Bored in the asylum the Tick breaks out. The city needs him, its protector, its superhero! While stampeding from rooftop to rooftop using his secret crime viewfinder he comes across what he hates most, ninjas. The fight leads the Tick to a familiar diner scene where he blacks out only to awake on the train tracks being saved by the mysterious Caped Wonder. Is the city big enough for two superheros?

**A mysterious blue superhero comes to THE CITY to fight crime and to protect the weak and oppressed. Is he insect or is he man? Only his psychologist knows for sure. This issue marks the first comic book appearance of the Tick, Ninjas, Clark Oppenhiemer, Shing, and the incredible offbeat storytelling of Ben Edlund. **Source: necpress.com

Also includes the one-page parody story "Mack Trail" by Edlund and Polio credited as Ebb Dodd & Jock L. Rod and four additional pages that reprint the first Tick story from New England Comics Newsletter #14-15.
