    I just got a hold of these images. Here's what we can look forward to next month!
  2. I joined last summer but just recently saw this thread. I've been collecting the Tick since 1988 - but as a casual collector. I decided to take my collecting more serious and I knew virtually nothing about comic book collecting, let alone grading. Everyone I have meet here as been super nice and helpful in educating me... and even helped me fill in a couple holes in my collection. If you're a Tick collector my site is http://www.TickComics.com. There are no ads or anything. It just a site dedicated to listing all the Tick comics (and a few magazine article) related to the Tick. -Brian

    You're welcome. I just updated it yesterday - I added a new magazine in the non-NEC section.

    How big is this and what is it made of?. It's quit epic looking.

    Hi Vic, 1st - the complete first season Amazon DVDs (Emmy or something) are showing up on eBay. They seem to be averaging in price at around $30. I just got one for $30 including shipping and I see a couple more like that. They have all 12 episodes! 2nd. There are 5 covers to issue 1 of the 2017 series: (1) NEC Boston ComicCon ashcan by Mike Lilly - black and white cover - Tick in Wolverine #1 pose - limited to 75 (2) NEC Exclusive by Mike Lilly - Tick in Wolverine #1 pose - color cover - limited to 500 (3) NEC Ashcan Edition - Tick and Arthur back to back - black and white - limited to 100 (4) the regular cover - Tick on a ladder or something - color and (5) the 1:10 variant cover - Tick and Arthur back to back - color ... meaning the for every 10 copies of the regular cover (style 4) they will print 1 cover of the variant cover - tick and arthur back to back in color. So to clarify - it's not actually cover 1 of 10 (meaning there were 9 other covers) it means that there are only 1 of those covers for every 10 of the standard cover. It was a dealer incentive to get stores (or people like you and me) to purchase extra comics. in order to get the "limited: variant :-). I don't know the quantities of style 4 and 5 that were printed. Variants 1,2, and 3 were only available from NEC. Variants 4 & 5 were for general purchase. Hope that helps clear things up. -Brian

    Hey Finhead - that's a really nice set. Thanks for sharing!

    I picked this up last week. It's in rather poor shape (in my opinion) but it had an early Ben Edlund signature in it. I didn't have one of these signatures yet in my collection.

    Thank you Vic for my prize package. It arrived safe and sound from the warm sunny SoCal to the ice storm ridden NH. The items have a nice new home. :-)

    Thanks for the share Vic! Anything to get more Tick fans is always a good idea! :-)

    I got my colorized Tick art. Billy Tucci did the line art, Wes Hartman did the coloring. I'll be using it for the TickComics.com site.

    Was that an entire -script that was signed?
