– Show Notes –
The Twilight Zone Podcast
If you enjoy an immersive journey of sound and atmosphere– untangle the earbuds and enter the Twilight Zone podcast with Tom Elliot. We recommend “The Howling Man,” an hour that any fan will be turning over in their mind for quite sometime. Dim the lights, find a comfortable seat and let the ‘Zone’ envelope you. Cheers, Tom!
The Twilight Zone Podcast
It has been said the brightest stars usually burn out the quickest– such is the case of TRON: Uprising, an Emmy award winning trip to the animated Grid that no Tron fan will soon forget. Director Charlie Bean and a dream team of creative minds rise above the call of duty for this 19 episode tale of Programs rebelling against the Tyranny of the program CLU. If you choose to only dabble, we recommend the episode “The Stranger” as it is a tantalizing portrayal of one of the mysteries of the Grid. Catch the pilot episode for the show in the links below.
Tron Fan Spotlight
With the vanishing of Uprising, fans rallied to continue the telling of stories from the Grid. One such program that caught our attention was Dariia (@myananase on twitter), a rising Russian artist and friend who continued the story of Uprising in her TRON comic. She projects the events that follow CLU’s arrival to Argon and delivers superior Grid atmosphere and dramatic story telling in the process. Dariia’s vision of the Grid is one that every fan should witness.
Dariia’s Tron Comic can be found here
TRON: Salvation is an upcoming dynamic CGI skinned comic telling the events around what would have been Season 2 of TRON: Uprising. Details are scant, but one look at the preview frame from Mark (Perilous7) and you’ll get it. Clean and lethal; this is a comic to be scrutinized. We can’t wait to see more.

Our last Tron Fan spotlight goes to our very own Curtis (cujo). Inspired by Charlie Bean and Robert Valley’s vision, Curtis knew he had to find a way onto the Grid. With help from talented Swedish artist Anna P and digital effects artist JT Johnson, Curtis and team’s Tron comic should be completed in a few cycles…give or take. They plan to explore the plight of random programs around the Grid during the events of the betrayal of CLU. You’ll hear it here first when the comic from this talented trio officially drops!
