‘The Tick’ Actor Griffin Newman Takes Over IndieWire’s Instagram Account at Comic-Con

Amazon's upcoming superhero show is set for a panel on Saturday afternoon.

Every year, Comic-Con brings in actors from all over the world of obsessive fandoms. So we asked one of them to take a bunch of pictures for us.

When “The Tick” lands on Amazon next month, Griffin Newman co-stars as Arthur, the title hero’s sidekick. (Podcast fans: In addition to his work on “The Tick,” Newman also hosts the excellent “Blank Check” with David Sims.) Before his character makes his full-season debut, Newman is documenting his Comic-Con experience on the official IndieWire Instagram account.

You can follow all of the day’s action via Instagram.

UPDATED: Newman clearly had a great time at Comic-Con this Saturday, as you can see in the photos below. (Many thanks for the great snaps, Griffin!)

The full first season of “The Tick” premieres on Amazon on August 25.
