TRON Comic Issue 2 Description (SPOILER!)

By TronFAQ on Saturday, June 10, 2006 at 2:26 AM
I just found a description of the story for issue two of the TRON comic, on SLG Publishing's site. Highlight the area below with your mouse, to see what the next issue has in store for us!

The computer world is at war: the tyrannical Master Control Program has returned to power and seeks the absolute domination of the Free Systems. Now Jet Bradley, accused murderer and fugitive from reality, finds himself leading the rebellion against this oppressive regime. But as the battle rages, Jet's tenacious grip on sanity weakens.

I must say, I'm surprised to see that character is appearing in the comic. Apparently, Steven Lisberger's favorite script that he wrote for a potential sequel: features the character in a big way. So anything that happens in the comic, may not fit with the film. (If it ever gets made . . . sigh.)

I thought Disney might have decreed that some characters are "hands off" for just this reason, but it seems that's not the case. Continuity versus creative freedom . . . it's a tough balancing act, but I'd prefer if they erred on the side of continuity.

Regardless, it's too early to say anything one way or the other.

    The comic is full of surprises.

    Disney has been very hands off. About 100%, truth be told. And to be fair, if a movie does get made and it is in contradiction with the comic, they will be the ones breaking continuity in favor of creative freedom. :p

    As you say, it's a tough balancing act. I've never read this script of Lisberger's, so obviously we could not account for it. Honestly, I doubt I would have anyway. That story is Lisberger's, and I can't tell it. He would have to. Tron 2.0 actually caused us many problems, as we started working and negotiating for this thing a couple of years before the game was even announced. Deep down inside, a very small part of me feels that we should dismiss that aspect of continuity as we started working first. But we came up with a story we liked and wanted to tell, possibly a bit more than our original concepts, that fit with the 2.0 story. If we had been unable, we would have simply passed, and their probably would be no comic at all, as we were the one's who pushed this project into reality.

    Very true. :)

    Well, I'm glad that you were finally able to create this comic. There should have been a TRON comic long ago!

    But as I've made abundantly clear, I'm glad that the comic is actually sticking to continuity as much as it does. Regardless of the medium the previous stories were told in.

    Nothing bothers me more, than looking at other franchises and seeing the mess in their EU stories: like Star Wars and Star Trek. It's a nightmare, sometimes.
