Macbeth comic dub: Episode One

Macbeth comic dub: Episode One

Making Shakespeare accessible to younger audiences, the Illustrated Classics comic book series was really cool to begin with, but I decided it would be a good way to use my voiceover acting skills and get in some theatre in a time where the closing of the theaters is driving me and other artists. Hopefully this "quarantine theatre" experiment will be a way to introduce Shakespeare to kids, and just enjoy the classics from home. This very old comic book was available for free on the Internet Archive and, while I am thinking about doing more where I cast other voice actors, the archive also made available a Public Domain Librivox recording that I was able to use for all the characters I was able to case myself (this being my first time, I played the lead only).... enjoy!
