Amazon’s The Tick, based on the classic Ben Edlund (who executive produces and writes) comics series, looks a bit different from the version that ran on FOX for all of seven episodes (yeah, I’m still ticked off about that…).

The new version of the deliverer of Mighty Blue Justice looks different – the new costume is weirdly textured – but the essentials are there.

Plus, Amazon has sent us a collection of photos that show us other denizens of The Tick’s superhero world – and Arthur definitely looks like an Arthur. Check out the photos after the break (click on thembnails to embiggen).

The Tick is one of three Amazon half-hour pilots that will drop on August 19th.

The Tick
In a world where superheroes have been real for decades, an underdog accountant with zero powers comes to realize his city is owned by a global super villain long-thought dead. As he struggles to uncover this conspiracy, he falls in league with a strange blue superhero. The Tick stars Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians of the Galaxy), Griffin Newman (Vinyl), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), Valorie Curry (House of Lies), Yara Martinez (Jane the Virgin) and Brendan Hines (Scorpion). The Tick is executive produced by Ben Edlund (Supernatural), Barry Josephson (Bones) and Barry Sonnenfeld (A Series of Unfortunate Events), directed by Wally Pfister (The Dark Knight), and written by Edlund. The Tick is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television.
