Who is Ticking Boy?


Apparently, one is supposed to update these things regularly, we shall see.

Anyway, who is TB? The short answer is me. In 2004 I underwent surgery to replace the defective aortic valve in my heart. My new carbon mechanical valve makes a noise like a loud watch and its constant ticking is a reminder of my own mortality. In true comic book style this has resulted in the creation of my own alter-ego Ticking Boy. I am currently working on semi auto-biographical comics featuring TB. The picture here is of a draft cover I created for a college project, although the chin may be a little too rugged - "you've made yourself a little too Brad Pitt" some wit commented.
