The Tick CD-ROM Comic:
The Tick vs. The Uncommon Cold

This CD-ROM comic is pretty much an exact copy of The Tick vs. The Uncommon Cold cartoon. The format is an interactive comic; there are 20 comic-book style pages outlining the plot and there are sound and video files embedded into some of the frames.

For a review of the plot, check out The Tick vs. The Uncommon Cold. Technologically speaking, this is a pretty keen product; it is a shame that it didn't catch on. There are 60 .MOV files on the CD, two of which I have posted here.

I would recommend picking this up from E-bay (search for it here) I got it for $1 plus $2 shipping and handling; the only other place I've seen it recently is New England Comics who is charging $17.95 for it.

Tick splash page

This is the splash page from the CD-ROM Comic. Notice the ninjas and the stopsign; it would seem to allude to the original Ben Edlund Tick comics #1-12.
