Amazon Prime Video brings The Tick, Dangerboat and Fo-Ham to NYCC 2017! NEAT!

One of the biggest booths at NYCC was Amazon Prime Video’s booth for The Tick! I got to visit Dangerboat and pick up some of the best swag of the con!

In this age of superheroes, it’s only natural that The Tick is back. A quirky, funny take on superheroes, the latest version is a live-action series streaming on Amazon Prime Video.  If you saw the early pilot, go back and watch since they re-tooled the show and it’s as off-beat and nutty as ever.

One of the new characters is Overkill — a hero/villain that likes guns and relishes eating Fo-Ham. (If you think that sounds like The Punisher likes Spam, you wouldn’t be wrong.) Overkill lives on a boat with a snarky AI personality called Dangerboat and they brought him to NYCC!

Once you enter the mammoth boat, you fill out your superhero profile while Dangerboat strikes up a conversation.

No, they didn’t bring in Alan Tudyk, but the actor voicing Dangerboat was lots of fun and would occasionally his own theme song — a dance re-mix called Dangerboat.

After filling out your superhero profile, you could pick up….a can of Fo-Ham! No, there wasn’t actual meat-ish stuff in the cans. (Just a couple of collectible enamel pins.) Best swag of the con!

After exiting, we also got a sturdy blue poncho like Arthur wears to hide the suit.

All in all, this was the best interactive recreation from a show and a lot of fun for the fans. The second half of season one will drop on Amazon Prime Video in January.
As the Tick says….NEAT!
