Comics Are Great! 47 – The Voice

We’re joined by a very special guest on this episode to help us find a new angle to come at the topic of writing characters! Neil Kaplan (Digimon, Transformers: Robots in Disguise, Power Rangers) joins us for a discussion on writing characters from the standpoint of a voice actor. How do you find that unique turn of phrase or affectation to make a character’s inner life show? What considerations might a cartoonist keep in mind when building a character from the ground up?

It’s a fun and lively discussion with Neil and Paul Storrie, followed by some more comics recommendations with Sharon Iverson of the Ann Arbor District Library. Sharon also drops the news about the new comics website at AADL, where you can subscribe to the video episodes of this show!
