Tick #8: A Matter of Cosmic Import...and other stories...
saving the moon (or, most of it anyway) from Chairface
Chippendale, The Tick comes
home to show Arthur. The pair
move up to the roof to look, where Tick gets hit in the head with
a meteor while trying to explain to Arthur why the moon had CHA
written on it.
and Arthur then go through an interesting day involving Arthur's
insecurities and the aliens which live in the meteor, all of which
convinces Tick that they should move to New York (supervillain
central!) to get Arthur away from his 'bad' influences. Arthur
is unconvinced and invites Dot over for dinner.
the dinner, two triggermen show up to get revenge for Chairface
but they learn (the hard way) that Tick is bulletproof. They decide
to use the Nigh-Invulnerable gun, but it takes them awhile to
put it together (while Tick throws various items at them like
stop signs and a mailbox) and just when it looked like the triggermen
would take out the Tick,
The Man Eating Cow ate
them both. Seeing a cow eat the triggemen convinces Arthur that
he is not crazy (?) and that they should really move to New York.
