This came as a surprise. I received an email today from a very talented group of voice actors who produced a radio play version of about the first 10 pages of the comic. They did a really fabulous job of it. In terms of quality, it kind of blew me a way, actually, so I figured I really ought to share it. =)

Okay, that was just awesome! XD

I was laughing raaaather hard. And the voices sounded rather good, and close to what I imagined. Except Mitzi, tho I could never decide on what she would sound like. . . Either way, I think they all sound amazing. :3


How'd they do in terms of how you heard the chars?

I'd heard rumors that something like this was in development, and frankly I'm delighted with what they've got so far! I hope to see more from this source.

Pretty close on all accounts with the exception of Rocky, perhaps, who was more consistently high pitched than I imagine him to be, but the performance was great regardless. In the end, I certainly didn't like it any less on account of the difference between the recording and what's in my head.

Oh, wow... That was very impressive. A lot of webcomics have had radio plays made of them (or knocked the idea around in the forum, at least). This is by far the best one I've heard! It's so wonderful that a group of talented professionals lent their voices to this. The editing and sound design is also very well-done.

Who initiated/directed the project, I wonder?

Rocky's voice confused me a little bit. I couldn't tell if the character was supposed to have a light Irish accent, or if the native accent of the voice actor was sneaking through. I'd never thought about it before, but it would make sense if Rocky and Freckle had a bit of Irish in their voices, on account of their relationship to Nina. So I really couldn't tell if it was intentional or not!

Very entertaining. Will they do more? I would love to hear Mordecai's voice. <3 (From a safe distance, that is.)

Un. Yeah, Rocky's voice was definitely more high-pitched then I hear it. :P
And Mitzi's was lighter, and softer... I guess I picture Mitzi with a more brassy, sultry drawl.

But it was definitely very cool. xD Specific voices aside, the acting pretty great, it was all pretty sweet. :D

That was a lot more awesome than I expected it to be. Great voice talent! Also very nice sound effects, although it helps if you know the cartoons at one or two moments, and I didn't like the shoe sounds from Rocky and Ivy going to persuade Victor.

Still, wow!

Well, not to be a stick in the mud, but it was ok, not spectacular. Maybe I have my bar set way to high, but it was a bit confusing in parts unless you had read the comic and the voice acting was off a lot.

Rocky was, frankly, very annoyingly done and Mitzi seemed a little monotone. The rest of the characters weren't at all what I pictured in my head but I guess that really can't be blamed on the voice talent.

On the positive side, the sound editing was very professional and Viktor was done quite well.

I think victor's voice sounded just a tiny bit lower than in my head, and Rocky sounded like he was from New york to me ._. Ivy and Mitzi, they were spot on though, i nmy eyes. The sounds and the music playing were cool, and i guess if i had to change one thing, sadly, it's rocky's voice actor. However, I do want to hear more of this, as I HAVE to hear how Mordecai, Zib, and Asa sound.

Yeah, I get what people are saying about Rocky's voice, but it was good otherwise... I might cry if it doesn't go any further. ;-;

...Yeah, Rocky's voice actor seemed to actually ham it up a bit much, even for Rocky. Other than that, the voice acting sounded fine.

I really liked it, I can't wait for more.

My only issue is that I have NEVER been able to imagine Freckle's voice (at least when I tried), so no matter who they pick, I probably won't be satisfied. (Well, he DOES tie for favorite character!)

Once I got used to Rocky's voice, I kind of liked it. I never really imagined him with an accent, so the fact that it's pretty well hidden, but peeks out, really worked for me.

Nina, on the other hand, will have the most prim, proper, uptight Irish accent I can imagine.

FUTURE! BOW TO MY WILL!

I really hope this continues!! I'd love to hear:
- Mordecai!!
- Freckle's "But no... I can't.. I'm supposed to be a hAHAHAHA-eep!!"
- Rockey's "I don't want to leave! I like it here! They tolerate meeeeeeeeeeeee.."
