I have a couple of the comics- they're good. The animated series was awesome though. Such a great mockery of superheroes.

 http://www.hulu.com/the-tick 
live action show.watch the live action ones while their still up on hulu.  
     the man behind the tick http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Edlund 
also worked on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Venture_Bros

the animated series made it to dvd tho their missiing some episodes for various resons http://www.amazon.com/Tick-Vs-Season-One/dp/B000FS9MVK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1251991924&sr=1-2 "The Tick: Season 1", this two disc set only included 12 of the first seasons 13 episodes. The missing episode is S1E11, "The Tick vs. The Mole-Men", in which The Tick and Arthur act as guide for a bunch of vacationing mole-men and their mole-king. When the mole-king falls in love with a Cindy Crawford lookalike, things get complicated. Disney swears the episode was left out for "creative reasons", which may have some truth as this episode is widely accepted as the weakest of the series " 
 
and http://www.amazon.com/Tick-Vs-Season-Two/dp/B000Q6775O/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1251991924&sr=1-3 "Buena Vista has announced that episode 15 "Alone Together" will NOT be included in this set! The reason was not given. " 
 
in closeing one can only say " SPPPPOOOOON!"

sucked. that live action show got preempted by the President. it was by the same guys that did MIB. 
happens to the good shows.
 
as an Easter Egg, the Tick is mentioned in the 90's Spider-Man TAS episode " Sting Of The Scorpion ".

I adore the Tick! Although I've never read the comics. I have the animated series on DVD, as well as the live-action show.

I loved the cartoon and I had a good portion of the original series of comics.

The live action show never really clicked with me though
