The Tick celebrates FCBD 2016 with 32 pages of full-color comic book fun! In the all-new lead story, 'The Council of Ticks', The Tick and Arthur discover that dimensional rifts have allowed dozens of different Ticks from alternate universes and realities to congregate in the 'real' world! It's hard enough to hide and feed a hundred Ticks.... but an even bigger challenge rears its literally ugly head when a 50-foot tall Thrakkorzog breaks through the dimensional barrier! Can even a warehouse-full of multi-dimensional Ticks confront such a menacing... er, menace!? Plus, two back-up stories, including an all-new story with art by Ian Nichols! Great for fans new and old!

Any child of the 90's will appreciate this gem of a free comic! I felt like this could have easily been an episode from the classic Fox Kids cartoon. The Tick's humor is spot on and Arthur is as always the definition of the "straight man". If you are new the Tick don't let this scare you. As long as you go in knowing this is a fun, comedic book you can follow right along. The FCBD comic has 3 stories in it, all revolving around the same tale. With almost no ads and great art throughout it is a great book made even better with a free price!
I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
