Welcome to Sky of Blue's Hoosier Journal of Inanity! This is where I go to write about stuff I can't help writing about. Current favorite topics are comic books and various things going on in Indiana. Names of real people are changed to George or Georgette where appropriate, to protect the innocent.
Here at the Hoosier Journal of Inanity, we're all about BLUE super-heroes! That's right! BLUE heroes rock! And I don't mean just heroes with BLUE in their names, like Blue Beetle or Blue Devil. Heroes who ROCK the color blue also qualify. That's why, this month, this blog is dedicated to the greatest blue-garbed comic-book hero of all time -- THE TICK!
That's right! April is TICK month at the Hoosier Journal of Inanity! All month long, we're gonna be celebrating the original comic book appearances of THE TICK! And it's gonna be the Tick in his original comic-book form. NOT the animated cartoon. NOT the live-action TV series. The ORIGINAL Tick.
One slight problem, though ... Even though the Tick IS blue, all of his original comics were originally printed in black and white. Oh, well. You can picture the Tick in his full blue glory when looking at black-and-white images, can't you? Sure you can. Blue is such a pretty color. You should keep that color in your mind all the time, anyway!
Oh, quit your whining, Hal. We're BLUE here now, do you hear me? BLUE! Deal with it!
Okay, ON to our TICK celebration! To start, here's an example of why some people say the Tick comics depict ninjas the way they DESERVE to be depicted:
