Then trend of mediocre movie tie-in comics broke with last year’s excellent Star Trek: Countdown. That series made J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek all the more enjoyable by chronicling many things unexplained by the film. Marvel hopes to rival that quality with the just announced Tron: The Betrayal, a two-issue prequel to Disney’s Tron: Legacy.
The storytelling picks up in the aftermath of Walt Disney Pictures’ first film in its franchise TRON. Kevin Flynn is now in charge of Encom, the world’s largest video game company. Kevin, a break-through game developer, has built the Grid, a digital world filled with living programs. This new virtual world is about to develop a life of its own and, in order to control it; Flynn’s going to need to help of an old friend…named Tron.
>Tron: The Betrayal #1, written by Jai Nintz and drawn by Andie Tong, will release this October.
