The Tick "The Tick" Review - AVClub

AVClub: It’s telling that every adaptation of The Tick has become more and more realistic, if not in story, then at least in tone. The 1994 animated series parodied superhero tropes on the most superficial (yet still entertaining) level, exploring the now well-tread idea that perhaps the good guys cause more damage to their surroundings than they prevent. 2001’s subsequent live-action reboot, while similarly silly, was able to build a more believable world that somehow felt closer to the comics, simply because it had high production value and flesh-and-blood actors. The generically named setting (simply “The City”) and its costumed denizens were still cartoons, but they were cartoons you could almost reach out and touch.

The story is too old to be commented.
