Last month, we got a peek at Marvel's "Tron Legacy" prequel comic, which will span the time between the 1982 film and the upcoming live-action sequel later this year. But for those who haven't checked out the original "Tron" — or might just want a refresher course — Marvel has you covered.
Hitting shelves next month, Marvel's "Tron: Original Movie Adaptation" is a two-issue adaptation of the 1982 film that sent quirky gaming guru Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) into the heart of one of his own creations to do battle with the sinister Master Control Program. The comic will be written by comics veteran Peter David ("X-Factor"), with interior art from Mirco Pierfederici and covers by Greg Land and Salvador Larocca.
Of course, I can't recommend this as a substitute for the original "Tron" — the movie holds up better than you might expect — but it might be a good way to get your head back into Flynn's Arcade before the sequel hits theater. You can check out a preview of the comic here on Splash Page and decide for yourself!
