Tron 2.0

For some early cyberculture items the franchise- and adaptation-roundabout seems to spin forever. The 1982 silverscreen-movie Tron was followed by Bally Midway’s identically named arcade game in the same year. 1983 saw the computergame Discs of Tron, and, more recently, in 2004, Tron 2.0 and its ports/spinoffs Tron 2.0 Killer App. A comic book series based on Tron 2.0 was cancelled due to licensing issues with Disney.

This new comic series continues where the TRON 2.0 video game left off, chronicling the adventures of Jet Bradley, a talented young programmer who is trapped in a computer mainframe.

Issue #1 is tentatively scheduled for April 2006.
