Horse To Save The Day!
Publishing The Incredibles Adaptation
of the most talked about projects at Comic-Con was the upcoming
Pixar film, The Incredibles. Lots of tie-in products were
teased, with THQ having a small demo of the upcoming videogame
of course, this story of retired superheroes really needed
its own comic book. Now it has one.
November Dark Horse Comics, in conjunction with Disney Publishing
Worldwide and Pixar Animation Studios, will publish a comic
book adaptation of the Walt Disney Pictures presentation
of a Pixar Animation Studios film, The Incredibles, a new
animated feature about a family with extraordinary powers.
The Incredibles premieres in theaters November 5, 2004.
Pixar has created and produced five of the most successful
and beloved animated films of all time: Academy Award®-winning
Toy Story (1995); A Bug's Life (1998); Golden Globe-winning
Toy Story 2 (1999); the Academy Award®-winning Monsters,
Inc. (2001); and the Academy Award®-winning Finding
the golden age of Supers, heroes protected the populace
from harm. The era’s main champion was the ultra strong
Mr. Incredible. But things went awry for Mr. Incredible
and the rest of the Supers when they were hit with a series
of frivolous lawsuits brought against them by those they
once saved. To diffuse the situation, the government created
a relocation program for the Supers, who, in exchange for
protection from further lawsuits, went into hiding and promised
never to use their powers again.
years later, Mr. Incredible is simply Bob Parr, living the
quiet suburban life with his wife Helen, and their three
children. However, family life and the daily nine-to-five
routine aren't enough for Bob, who frequently sneaks out
to do "hero work" in the evenings. Bob's inability
to move on from past glories soon puts a strain on his home
life. But one day things take an unexpected turn when Bob
is contacted by a mysterious woman who recruits him for
some top secret hero work.
four-issue comic book series is adapted from the original
film story, which was written by director Brad Bird (Iron
Giant) and will feature illustrations by Incredibles storyboard
artist Ricardo Curtis.
Incredibles issue #1 (of 4) arrives on sale November 24
