"High Rise Hijinx"
This non-Die-Cut version of the first printing was a production error with a possible print run of less than 200 copies.
*The Tick #2 was one of the first comics ever published with a "diecut" front cover. (We cut a square box out of the cover so you could see The Tick on page 1 with the cover closed.) The printer somehow missed cutting the hole on a tiny handful of copies. Thus was born perhaps the rarest Tick variant: the "No-Diecut" Tick #2. *Source: The Tick Catalog, The Tick and Arthur #4
**These are the first two "regular" issues of the Tick. They reprint the Special Editions in formats designed for distribution to the comic store market.
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! At 31 pages, the story in The Tick #2 remains the longest single Tick tale. This issue also introduces the "Ignore This Van" vehicles which may be apparent in recent issues of Tick Big Blue Destiny. **Source: The Tick: A Comic Book History, The Tick The Luny Bin Trilogy #0
