Comic-Con 2018: Dark Horse Breaks The Internet

Prequel/sequel graphic novel to Wreck-It Ralph 2 arrives in December

INTO THE INTERNET – In “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2,” Vanellope von Schweetz and Wreck-It Ralph leave the arcade world behind to explore the uncharted and thrilling world of the internet. In this image, Vanellope and Ralph have a breathtaking view of the world wide web, a seemingly never-ending metropolis filled with websites, apps and social media networks. On a quest to save Vanellope’s game, how will these two misfits ever succeed in this vast new world? Featuring the voices of Sarah Silverman as Vanellope and John C. Reilly as Ralph, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2” opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 21, 2018. ©2018 Disney. All Rights Reserved.

Sure, it should be “wrecks the internet,” but “breaks” scans better. And Dark Horse is about to prove that they can actually preserve Disney’s comics legacy in a big way. On the heels of an all-new Frozen adventure and a terrific Incredibles series, the publisher announced today this prequel/sequel graphic novel to Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet and… sight unseen, I’m onboard. Plus it’s a decent price point for a kids’ graphic novel.

From Dark Horse:
