 "The art of this webcomic is pretty cool (at least to SJ!) There are two styles, alternating between standard comics, and a cartoon-sketch style. All panels are black and white.

The characters have sweet names (like Stinky) and that sets the tone - this isn't a normal comic. Early on we see whales in the sky and pirates on ships! In the middle of a city! 

SJ's feelings on this webtoon: It's weird and awesome and you should totally check it out. It has a similar feel to Tank Girl in aesthetic, characters, and world building."

Hi Everyone!

Thanks for dropping in!

You are here to help print a collection of the Webcomic “Temptation” which is part of the comics legend that is TicTocTom.

A Bit Of History

TicTocTom began in the early 1990s shortly after Chetan Patel arrived at Ontario College of Art in Toronto. As a longtime comics fan, Chetan began to seek out fellow comics enthusiasts with whom to collaborate. At that time, mini-comics carpeted the Queen Street art scene with feverish visions of imagined worlds wrought in photocopied form. Chetan opened his character to interpretation by anyone willing to put ink to paper.

A few years later, a small crew of comics believers set sail with Chetan to test the seas of mainstream comics distribution. Though the new format TicTocTom was unique and gloriously strange, forces beyond their control forced the voyage aground.

Starting in 2002, TicTocTom gained a berth on the Internet. Eventually, Chetan and Tom Yeo created 18 monthly issues graced with covers by longtime collaborator Paul Marhue. Peter Macchione, also from mini-comics days, returned for another round too. A change in creative approach ushered in weekly episodes created with an improvised approach. It could be described as seat-of-the-pants, no-seatbelt-fastened comics-making!

What’s in the Book?

“Temptation” opens with a young man tasked with guarding a simple wooden crate that sits in an alley beside a comics shop. What unfolds from there careens from pirates to aliens, swims with space sharks and space whales, glimpses apocalyptic visions and pauses for coffee.

All sixty plus episodes are complete and the aim is to put the entire shaggy tale into physical book form. Once again, Paul Marhue has gone to his creative forge to hammer out a colour cover. Inside, the main story was written and drawn by Chetan and Tom. Special guests Peter Macchione and storyboard artist Megan Bannon provide pin-up art accents.

Also included in the trade paperback:

A new 6 page unpublished Iggy story by Chetan Patel and Peter Macchione.

There may also be a 5 page story starring one of our Kickstarter supporters!
