How about a movie on Dan Dare and The Mekon?
Anyone here know Dan Dare and his legendary archvillain, the Mekon? What about a movie?
Dare was launched in the 50s and was around in comics in the 70s and 80s (where i read his exploits). Virgin Comics revived the character last year in a new comic - Virgin also bought film/TV/video rights...
There's also an exhibition on now at London's Science Museum showing how Dare (a sort of UK Buck Rogers) reflected Britain's technological advancement in the years after the war. I visited it last weekend.
I wrote about Dan Dare and the exhibition in my blog, and talked about whether we would ever see a movie. Seeing Mekon on the big screen would be awesome!
Anyone else here agree? Or is Dan Dare unknown outside the UK?
