The Tick series on Amazon

It’s time for episode 116 and we are chatting with writer and producer Ben Edlund (Supernatural, Angel, Firefly,Gotham, Revolution), the creator of The Tick TV show and comic book series.

The Tick is always one of those shows that often makes the list of TV shows that ended to soon. So it is very awesome to see Amazon giving Ben Edlund a second chance at a live-action series version of The Tick. We spoke with Ben about his plans for the show, how it will differ from the first incarnation, and so much more.
