TRON Comic Writer On Issue 6 And End Of Series

By TronFAQ on Friday, May 23, 2008 at 10:59 AM
Landry Walker, co-writer of the SLG Publishing title TRON: The Ghost In the Machine along with Eric Jones, recently posted his thoughts on issue #6: which is the last issue and will bring the comic series to a close.

In his posting, he mentions that the writing on issue #6 is finished.  He also posts some small previews of artwork from this last issue.

The tone of the writing in the post is very bittersweet in nature. Rather than repeat quotes from it here, I encourage everyone to read it for themselves. It's clear that Landry and pretty much all of the people involved in producing this comic were passionate about TRON, and I for one am extremely glad that the comic was written by such people: who were doing it for that reason alone, and not as a quick cash-in attempt. The comic turned out far more adult and serious than I had expected, and once again I can't thank them enough for it.

I could never understand why it took this long for an original comic based on TRON to appear. With no news of a film sequel in sight for such a long time, the story of the original film was practically begging to be explored further in other mediums. We did receive the TRON 2.0 game; but also releasing a comic seemed like a no-brainer.

It's sad seeing the series coming to an end, but — short of a sequel — at least the fans' remaining wish was granted, and a TRON comic was made. Thank you SLG, and thank you Landry and Eric.
