The Matrix Comics, Based on the Film, Return to Print This Autumn
Aug 27, 2019
Twenty years have passed since the release of The Matrix. Groundbreaking and imaginative, The Matrix changed the face of cinema forever.
Between 1999 and 2003, a series of webcomics were published on the official Matrix website from creators including the Wachowski Sisters, Neil Gaiman, Dave Gibbons, Geof Darrow, Bill Seinkiewicz, and more. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Matrix, Burlyman Entertainment is releasing the full original run of comics, and a great deal more, including stories and material never printed, in a single oversized deluxe hardcover edition.
From the Introduction by Spencer Lamm:
“This book was never supposed to exist. When we started commissioning these stories set in the world of The Matrix, they were released online, with no intention of printing them. Like the spoon, there was no book, and we leaned into that notion, keeping the comics digital, as if of the Matrix itself. We received a steady stream of emails asking us to print. Four years after our original online launch, we finally relented, releasing two paperback collections, 12 stories in each. Still, we never printed all the stories, or a hardcover, let alone a deluxe edition. So here it is, twenty years on, and for the first time.”
Featuring two covers, the Pod Cover (SEP191655, SRP: $39.99) and Trinity Cover (SEP191656, $39.99), The Matrix Comics 20th-Anniversary Deluxe Edition Harcover is the definitive edition of these stories, perfect for fans of cinema and science-fiction. Slated to hit store shelves this November, both covers are available to pre-order now at your local comic shop!
