Dan McVicar (ex-Clarke, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) is taking on a new role comic book creator. The actor has teamed with Italian screenwriter Roberto Pretti and artist Gianluca Gugliotta (DC Comics' Mister Terrific) to bring to life The Last Cavalier, a graphic novel that tells the story of Michael Cross, an adventurer who returns to Italy to help locate the missing Shroud Of Turin!
"I'm very excited about this project, and I see it having life in many forms," McVicar tells Soaps In Depth. "It's a combination of fantasy, history, spiritualism, and action. Michael Cross is a mature hero, happily married to a loving wife, Anna, who gets caught up in the story as well." Perhaps influenced by the triangles he was involved in as Clarke, McVicar says that Michael's got one going on, too, with the character of Marta De Paolis. "As writers, we know a lot about her, but readers won't for a while."
The Last Cavalier is seeking funding through Kickstarter. Interested folks can bid at this link. Backers can receive everything from having their name mentioned on the comic's Web site to having themselves or a friend drawn into the story!
