Marvel is proud to announce TRON: THE BETRAYAL, a new two-issue limited series serializing the highly anticipated graphic novel from Disney Publishing Worldwide, tying into Walt Disney Pictures' high-tech adventure.
The limited two-issue series arrives in October and serves as a prequel to the Disney film, "TRON: Legacy." The movie hits U.S. theaters in Disney Digital 3DTM and IMAX 3D® on December 17, 2010.
Each extra-sized issue of TRON: THE BETRAYAL features a new cover by superstar artist Salvador Larroca (INVINCIBLE IRON MAN). Featuring art and stories by some of the top names in comics today, this all-new story extends upon the mythology of the world of TRON.
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.
"Marvel Publishing is excited to bring Disney Book Group's first TRON graphic novel to comic book fans in this limited series," said Ruwan Jayatilleke, Marvel Senior Vice President, Development & Planning, Print, Animation and Digital Media. "So whether you're new to TRON or a longtime fan, TRON: THE BETRAYAL is an action-packed thrill-ride that will not disappoint!"
