A prequel to Tron: Legacy, this original graphic novel unfolds years before the events of the title work. You'll meet Kevin Flynn who has changed the universe of video games with his strange, new, digital world.

The book sheds light on the creation of the Grid, shows Flynn's never-before-seen adventures in this astonishing world and reveals the moment where it all went wrong. You'll be there when Flynn's son, Sam, is born and watch as the boy grows up. A ringside seat is also provided for the problem the Isos create and how Clu deals with it.

As Flynn's life in the real world becomes more complicated with the arrival of his son, Flynn's digital world has become more and more dangerous. Obviously, something is going to have to give if he is going to successfully function in both realms.

Tron fans will want to read this short graphic novel to stay up with the zigs and zags of this expanding series of stories. There's much, much more ahead as the saga continues.
