Awake: Chapter 1 (audio drama) will be released with Issue #1 of Sparkler Monthly at the end of July 2013. Post your general thoughts on the series here!
Of the two authors, Tory Woollcott is a beloved Toronto comic artist and writer whose backlist includes Mirror Mind, a graphic novel about growing up dyslexic. Barabara is a group of writers who just start screaming every time we ask for biographical information.
Rebecca Scoble, director and music composer, is Chromatic Press/Sparkler’s audio department head. She’s spent the last two years directing, editing, and composing for Tokyo Demons Audio.
This will be Chromatic Press/Sparkler’s first full audio drama (Tokyo Demons Audio is a dramatized audio book), and we’re super excited about it. It includes the voice talents of Rielle Braid, Jae Jae Lopez, Jesse Hodson, Annemieke Wade, Alex O’Shea (voice of Jo Oda in Tokyo Demons Audio), and Adam Ford (voice of Adam Nguyen in Tokyo Demons Audio).
Oh my gosh, I remember picking up Mirror Mind at the MoCCA Comic Festival a few years back. It was a really enlightening look at dyslexia. That’s interesting that the creator is involved in Awake. Pretty Nifty!
Yay, gomidog is on the forums! I can’t wait until we make a CERTAIN AWESOME ANNOUNCEMENT about you. :) Very soon now.
Yeah, Tory’s book on dyslexia really opened my eyes, too. I know it’s made a splash in the educational market (school, libraries, etc.). She’s been fantastic on Awake. Working her butt off with the rest of the team! This project is extremely hard. :D
