THE TICK'S 20TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL EDITION

New England Comics Press has assembled more than 30 comics creators for The Tick's 20th Anniversary Special Edition #1, a 48-page comic due in April.

Simon Bisley and Arthur Suydam share the cover duties, with an equal print run for each artist. There will also be a Bisley sketch edition cover as a variant.

Tick creator Ben Edlund has contributed an original page for the book, as has his father Richard.

The book's concept had creators asked to to write and draw a one-page -- or in some cases two-page -- Tick short story as if they had total control over the character.

Among those contributing interior pages were Suydam, Erik Valdez y Alanis, Kevin Atkinson, Bryan Baugh, Jason Burns, Zander Cannon, Jerry Carr, Benito Cereno, Gabe Crate, Jef Czekaj, Ben Edlund, Dave Garcia, Fred Hembeck, David Hopkins, Paul Hornschemier, Josh Howard, Jason Jensen, Matt Kindt, Terry Moore, Chris Reilly, Brock Rizy, Trina Robbins, Scott Shaw!, Anne Timmons, Robert Tinnell, Cory Walker, Sean Wang and Mark Wheatley.

The book also includes several Tick-related articles and a creator index/biography section.

The Tick 20th Anniversary Special Edition #1 will cost $5.95.
