      Ben Edlund is best known as a comic book artist and television screenwriter, and created the cult superhero The Tick. Edlund began developing the Tick character when he was still a high school student, as a mascot of sorts for a local comic book store that Edlund and his pals used to frequent. While majoring in film at Massachusetts College of Art, Edlund continued to develop the Tick (a spoof of sorts on comic book superheroes), eventually resulting in an independent comic book series being launched in 1988. Due to the comic book's popularity, the Tick was made into an animated television series for FOX, simply titled "The Tick," which ran for three seasons (from 1994 through 1996). The series brought Edlund a pair of Annie Awards in 1995 for his work on the show (as a writer and co-producer). A short film that Edlund co-wrote and co-directed, 1999's "Crawley," had another award win ("Best Narrative Short" at the Chicago Underground Film Festival). The year 2001 would see the Tick return to television, but this time as a live-action series (with Patrick Warburton in the lead role), and once more titled "The Tick." However, it would only last for a single season. Currently, Edlund serves as a writer and executive producer for the popular television series "Supernatural."
