While still in high school, he began developing his satirical superhero, The Tick, who became the mascot of the New England Comics newsletter. Edlund was offered to create a comic book series based on the character by New England Comics when, due to a production mixup, the publisher needed a new title fast. Edlund graduated from high schol in 1986 and continued to draw his popular character while majoring in film at Massachusetts College of Art. The debut of The Tick took a year and a half for Edlund to develop. While still in college, Edlund was approached by Kiscom, a New Jersey-based toy licensing and design company, who wanted to develop merchandising off The Tick. However, no big television newtwork was willing to take the concept of a Tick animated series. Finally, Sunbow Entertainment, a small New York-based animation company, paired Edlund up with writer Richard Libmann-Smith. In 1994, The Tick debuted his own animated series on FOX and lasted three season.s. In the late 1990's, Edlund collaborated with indie filmaker Lisa Hammer and her husband, Eric Hammer, on the film Crawley. In the early 2000's, he was employed by Joss Whedon at Mutant Enemy, first on Firefly and then later on the final seasons of Angel, writing and directing the Hugo Award nominated episode, "Smile Time". Edlund served as co-executive producer on Point Pleasant in 2005. Now he is consulting producer and writer on our own Supernatural.
