Art & Story 67 – The Big Kaplan
[private]It’s another interview episode, and it’s one I’ve been really looking forward to.
|This week we talk with Neil Kaplan, actor, comic book writer, and possibly best known for his voice work on Power Rangers, Digimon, and as Optimus Prime in the Transformers: Robots In Disguise series.
Neil was kind enough to share his thoughts on storytelling, both from his perspective as an actor and as a comics creator. We talk a bit about his upcoming graphic novel I, of the Wolf, and why showing fantastical violence seems to be more acceptable to an audience than having a character curse. You can check out a special preview of Neil’s graphic novel at the Trigger Street website, and you can post a review of the book there.
We also spend some time talking about another of Neil’s projects, Optimoose, which was born from a gag made while recording an episode of TF:RID, but now has a following behind it and promises to make its animated debut on the web. Check out the Optimoose Facebook group for more information.
You can also contact Neil or send him fan mail (and why wouldn’t you?) by checking out his contact page.
And just for the heck of it, here’s some TF:RID for you to check out.
