Legion of Dans epi 001 – Secret Origins

This was a project that came to me late last year.   I’ve been in the action figure journalism biz for a long time, and there are a lot of guys also in the “biz” that I really admired.   Then I started to notice a pattern.   There were a handful of guys that held a lot of the same philosophy that I did about toys and collecting:  That it should be fun, that you should do it because you love it, and if it makes you angry or sad you should find a new hobby that makes you happy.

The the pattern went deeper… all the people that it noticed had the same philosophy also had the same name… and it was the same as MY name.    It was then that the “Legion of Dans” was born.

I’m am truly honored to get to work on a project with these fine gentlemen, who’s work I enjoy so much.    They are all experts in their own rights and all approach their love of the hobby in different ways.
