We continue our episode reviews of Voltron: Defender of the Universe with Episodes 25 – 28, where Marc and Author Dan Jolley make comparisons with Beast King GoLion.
Marc starts by catching up with Dan as Dan tells us about his current comic books, novels, and video games he's writing. Dan is proud to announce some things he can actually talk about:
- For comic books, Dan co-wrote “LARP!” from Dark Horse Comics with Shawn deLoache. The first issue is available here: https://www.darkhorse.com/Books/24-368/LARP-Volume-1-TPB
- Dan is writing a 3-novel trilogy, all original, called The Gray Widow Trilogy. The first novel is called "Gray Widow's Walk", a grounded sci-fi horror story centering on an Atlanta-based female vigilante, which has just been accepted at Seventh Star Press and is planned as the first in a trilogy.
- Gunfire Games have hired Dan as lead writer to create a rich narrative that chronicles one hero's lifelong quest to save his homeland from an evil force. This unique adventure will allow players to explore a compelling fantasy world in full virtual reality with an incredible level of immersion and detail in an Oculus Rift VR environment game called Chronos.
