SLG Publishing and Disney are teaming on TRON: THE GHOST IN THE MACHINE, a comic book written by Landry Walker and Eric Jones (LITTLE GLOOMY, X-RAY COMICS) and drawn by Louie De Martinis. The comic picks up where the critically-acclaimed videogame TRON 2.0 leaves off.
Jet Bradley has escaped from the computer world after being kidnapped and digitized to defeat a nefarious virus. But after his ordeal, Jet can't seem to adjust to the real world. Beset by insomnia and paranoia, he avoids technology as much as possible, leaving him completely unable to function in the modern world. And now something in the computer world wants him back.
"I've loved TRON since I first saw the movie as a kid," said Jones. "The whole concept is so exciting, since it involves more than 'good versus evil' and allows for some pretty good twists and turns."
TRON: THE GHOST IN THE MACHINE will be an ongoing, full color comicbook. Each issue will sell for $3.50. Issue one is scheduled for April 2006, and the series will be published bi-monthly. The comic will be available at comicbook stores, Amazon.com and direct from the publisher at www.slgpublishing.com.
