    A guide:
    — Welcome to Virtucon, company of the future.
    Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, film

    I wonder, if the absence of an article has anything to do with the underlined part being in apposition. And, woud it sound idiomatic with "a"?

    Thanks.

    Thank you for the answer. (I think the question mark is a typo, right?)
