Creative and Dreams Music Network and Fred Cannon are proud to welcome the creative talents of author and actor Daniel McVicar.
American actor Daniel McVicar, who is based in Italy and Los Angeles, is the co-author of the graphic novel, The Last Cavalier. He is currently raising money via Kickstarter to produce the first edition of The Last Cavalier, a project that is destined to be a new and powerful adventure for comics and films.
His co-author is Roberto Pretti, a screenwriter who is known for his work on the cult science fiction project “Closer” and the upcoming “Dark Resurrection Vol. 2.” Acclaimed D.C. and Marvel comic artist Gianluca Gugliotta is on board to provide his considerable talents to make the world of The Last Cavalier come alive.
The story focuses on Michael Cross, a young art historian with anger issues who is called back to the past and destiny from which he escaped. He has been struggling to live a normal life with his beautiful and patient wife Anna in Boston, but he is destined to be a modern-day Templar Knight. He must keep the world in delicate balance between good and evil, and fight the evil that he finds in himself. His sword, his will, his intelligence, his heart and his tainted soul are his forces in this fight. The legends will span the world and touch on theologies and objects that are all secretly connected. Ancient Egypt will meet the modern world, the Templar Knights and the Shroud of Turin. These adventures are a rich mix of fantasy and history, with attractive characters and action.
Developed over the course of several years, several graphic novels and two films have already been written. The project is currently accepting pledges via Kickstarter. To learn more about The Last Cavalier, please click here: The Last Cavalier on Kickstarter http://bit.ly/tlcgn.
