Well, it looks like comic book fans might be spending a fair amount of time in front of the television this August (or whatever type of screen they use for viewing such content). Yesterday Amazon announced that their new Tick series would debut on August 25th, exactly one week after Netflix drops The Defenders. It should provide an entertaining study of contrasts as one of the strengths of last year’s pilot was how gleefully it parodied the grim-dark tone of Netflix’s superheros. No official statement, yet, on the number of episodes, but IMDB lists director credits for seven, so eight, perhaps?
The Tick stars Peter Serafinowicz & Griffin Newman. It will be available through Amazon Prime’s streaming service.
