Pre-order tickets to Marvel show, get free comic book

Marvel is teaming up with the producers of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus to produce a live arena show featuring Marvel characters July 10-13 at the Tampa Bay Times Forum — and now they are releasing a free "prequel" comic book to those who pre-order tickets. The story, created by Marvel's Frank Tieri (Iron Man, Wolverine), will center on Lectro Link, a wearable tech invention (available as a collectible in the gift shop, natch) that provides a remote power source for the Iron Man suit. The free comic book will be available to those who pre-order tickets by June 1. They range from $40-$120 at Ticketmaster and the comic books will be mailed. Produced by circus masters Feld Entertainment, this first-ever live Marvel tour makes its 85-city debut in Tampa, with special effects, pyrotechnics, aerial stunts, martial arts and motorcycles and favorite Marvel characters like Spider-Man, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Nick Fury, Falcon and S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents. — Sharon Kennedy Wynne, Times Staff Writer
