Since I’ve been re-reading the Essential Defenders books, naturally I tried dramatizing a couple of issues (#s 5 and 6) for Olivia’s benefit. Issue #5 featured Namor, Doctor Strange, and the newly-minted Valkyrie against Omegatron/Yandroth; and #6 pitted the non-team (this time adding the Silver Surfer) against Cyrus Black.
My question is, what can I do to make the voices distinct? Omegatron/Yandroth was easy, because the context indicates how … slowly … he … should … speak. The Doctor Orpheus voice didn’t really fit for Doctor Strange. A Boris Karloff voice worked a little better for the Silver Surfer, but it became harder to sustain. I don’t know what kind of accent Namor would have, and I didn’t do anything special for Valkyrie.
(Thank goodness Olivia was asleep while I read the Avengers/Defenders crossover!)
I’m into the Steve Gerber issues now, with not so much Namor and Surfer but more Hulk and guest-stars. Any suggestions?
