RIP Casey Kasem
One of my tricks for writing comic book stories based on tv properties is to imagine the actors' voices when I'm writing dialogue. If it sounds right coming from them, then I've done it right. Writing Scooby-Doo for so many years, Casey Kasem (who voiced Shaggy) was often in my mind while working. I feel like he's been a presence in my life for such a long time through various animated characters as well as his long running radio program. Now he's gone, but his voice will live on.
