New comic up on Writer Unboxed

I've been thinking a lot more about the concept of "voice" in writing and illustrating lately. As in editors who are looking for "strong voices" or "writing with a MG or YA voice" etc.

I'm going to start posting in the MiG Writers blog on Thursdays about what I'm learning about voice, but the topic also inspired me to post a voice-related comic in Writer Unboxed today.
