Weekly Update – March 16, 2021

Good news, everyone!

After considering a dozen different narrators, I’m pleased to announce that I’ve selected Bethany Boles to handle narration duties for Action Figures – Issue One: Secret Origins!

In the end it came down to Bethany and one other narrator, both of whom gave me a great audition, but Bethany made some intriguing character choices in her reading that pushed her over the top.

As it so happens, Bethany is an old friend from the Connecticut Renaissance Faire, so I know first-hand how very talented and cool she is. I mean, how many people in the world can I make Robert Z’Dar references with? Damn few, and she’s one of them.

Fun fact: after moving out west, Bethany worked for The Jim Henson Company (super jealous!) and was a production assistant on The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.

Needless to say, I’m thrilled that this project is back on track, but also that I get to collaborate with a friend again!
