ep217In the world of dramatic television animation there’s few creators as revered as Greg Weisman. Chances are good you know his work: Gargoyles, Young Justice, Star Wars Rebels, or perhaps you hung out with us last year for the Greg Weismanathon when we watched over 8 hours of Weisman-penned cartoons. Enter: Rain of the Ghosts – a new creator-owned project, and a startling world that needs your help to bring it to life.

Rain of the Ghosts is a novel series following the paranormal adventures of Rain Cacique, an island girl in a tourist town where all is not what it seems. Two out of the proposed nine books are out and now Greg is crowdfunding the creation of an audioplay featuring an insane cast of 20 actors – from Demona (Marina Sirtis) to Darkwing Duck (Jim Cummings). Join Cap and Tony as they discuss the novel series and the audioplay with Greg and voice actor Eric Lopez, aka Young Justice‘s Blue Beetle.

We also hear about Greg’s experience working on Star Wars Rebels, his current comic series Kanan: The Last Padawan, as well as Eric’s favorite current comics, how he got the gig voicing Blue Beetle, and what would happen if Greg was given supreme comic dominion.

    God damn I can’t afford this right now. I love full cast audiobooks. (It is how I got really into podcasts.) the fact it is a lot of people I love their voice work in other things on top of that is even more amazing.

    This sounds amazing. Alas I won’t make it out to Star Wars Celebration but I know a couple of people who are in the local Mandelorian troop. My roommate has been building a starship control console for the last several months for it. There should be a fully armored Mandelorian Wookie as well.
