I met Mega Man fanatic and all around nice guy Steve Juon at the late, lamented Oklahoma Video Game Exhibition in Tulsa well over a decade ago. He and his wife beloved Michelle were very friendly, and we immediately became friends, discussing retro gaming, collecting, and the like. Over the years, we’ve had a blast vending at the show, going to Jeff Cooper’s house to hang out in his garage and game room (alas, that is no longer possible), and scarfing down pizza. Steve even interviewed me at one point, which you can check out HERE. Steve’s insight into the Mega Man franchise was invaluable for The SNES Omnibus: The Super Nintendo and Its Games, Vol. 1 (A–M). Thanks, Steve, I appreciate your friendship and your enthusiasm for the project!
Here’s Steve’s bio as it appears in The SNES Omnibus Vol. 1:
Steve Juon is a lifelong video game enthusiast and collector who has attended many conventions through the Midwest as both a fan and a presenter, including an exhibition of rare and unusual Mega Man games at the Oklahoma Video Game Expo. He’s happily married to his wife Michelle for over 15 years, they have an adorable orange tabby named Tango (yes, after Mega Man V for GameBoy), and when not pursuing gaming passions he works as a freelance writer and journalist.
You can pre-order The SNES Omnibus: The Super Nintendo and Its Games, Vol. 2 (N–Z), which completes the two-volume set, HERE.
