Amazon's THE TICK Infests These New Stills

Still from "The Tick"

Amazon has released over a dozen photos from its upcoming live-action The Tick. Jointly produced with Sony Pictures Television, The Tick is written by his original creator Ben Edlund.

“This has been a labor of love for Amazon, Sony, and all of us. The only way for this to have value was if we found a wholly new expression of The Tick and Arthur's story in live-action, and I think we're on to something!" said Edlund, who also serves as executive producer. "Visually and thematically this new Tick lives in the textures and rhetoric of today's superhero saturation tsunami -- and for it to be something you want to watch for hours, it needed to find its way to a story with heart and stakes, as well as absurdism. Is it a radically new hybrid of humor and super heroic action with characters you will care desperately about? Yes! Yes it is.”

The Tick is scheduled to debut August 19 on Amazon.
