Steve Blum is a world renown voice actor and all around cool dude. In 2016, I interviewed him and I was hoping for another chance since I was light years better now. At JAFAX, that chance came to fruition. This time, we dive into his new voice acting classes, his collaborations with rapper Logic, the significant meaning of his extensive back tattoo, space, an obscure role that he would like to reprise, his thoughts on the upcoming live action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop, and much more. This interview was a personal favorite of mine for numerous reasons. I’m happy to say that it crushed our old interview. Please enjoy.
Drunk on Comics did an interview with Joe (aka the guy who runs this site aka ME). If you want to know more about me and how MIGeekScene started feel free to check out this interview.
Here lies the final chapter in the 2016 Year in Review series. You might be asking you self: why are you releasing the last part in October of 2017?

Let’s look at it this way, this final review can give you a chance to see what the events were like last year and check out a few of the things that you might have missed. This final chapter talks about my time at the Grand Rapids Comic Con, Youmacon and the Motor City Black Age of Comics. Considering that these events are around the corner at the time of this article’s publishing, I feel it is a timely and relevant release. Enjoy.

Sasuke Uciha (Naruto), Simon (Gurren Lagann) and Ben Tennyson (Ben 10) are a paltry sampling of the numerous popular shows that Yuri has voiced for. We talk about Mad Max Fury Road, martial arts, Ninja Scroll, Dr. Who, charitable causes, steampunk, noir influences and many more topics in this engaging interview.
I always strive to create a fun and engaging interview for my guests. However, when the guest and I click right from the beginning, the real magic begins. Yuri Lowenthal was, by far, one of my favorite interviews of the year (and of all time)!
You might have heard Ian Sinclair’s voice in numerous shows such as Black Butler, Baccano, One Piece and Toriko. He’s also the voice of a dandy guy in space.
