This 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.
During 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.
Fifteen 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.
This 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.
“The Incredibles” issue #1 (of 4) arrives on sale November 24 with a
retail price of $2.99.
