#69: Sark. The Game Grid persona of Dillinger, Sark was the bad guy lackey to the major threat of Tron, The Master Control Program. The genius of the original Tron wasn’t in its use of early computer animation, or even its amazing design style and incredible rotoscoping techniques. It was the way that what could’ve been simply a fun, Disney romp was actually a story of religious persecution and discussion of humanity’s relationship with our creator/s. Also, people throw laser Frisbees at each other.
“I can’t wait to see where this comic goes from here. It feels like the beginning of a thrill ride that I want to be a part of so count me in for future issues.”
Thanks to Gavin Andaloza at The Stone Legacy for the great review of The RISE #1.
Thanks to all who stopped by to visit and/or buy some comics this weekend! I met a lot of great folks, and saw a bunch of great cosplay. The Skeksis were especially impressive. Comicpalooza was a big success, and I can’t wait until next year. Special thanks to Bradd and Adina at Dork Buzz and my fellow booth squatter, Jeff Meuth.
