DR. STRANGE: THE FATE OF DREAMS

DR. STRANGE: THE FATE OF DREAMS

by Devin Grayson | Read by Richard Rohan and a Full Cast

GraphicAudio | Audio Program
Audio Theater

GraphicAudio took on quite a challenge in adapting a visually surreal comic book to audio. Dr. Strange and the Nightmare, who are lords of the Dream Dimension, have long been adversaries, but now they must team up with the non-magical Dr. Misra to find out what new evil force is causing harm in the real and dream worlds. While they do maintain a solid story with engaging sound... Read More

FANTASTIC FOUR: WAR ZONE

FANTASTIC FOUR: WAR ZONE

by Greg Cox | Read by Richard Rohan and a Full Cast

GraphicAudio | Audio Program
Audio Theater

The hard-working folks at GraphicAudio once again make the difficult seem easy in their creation of a comic book made of sound. In just one audiobook, they do more with the Fantastic Four than three big-budget Hollywood films did. The characters sound like the Fantastic Four would sound, which is pretty hard to do--just look at The Thing in any of the films for comparison.... Read More

HENRIETTA & ELEANOR

HENRIETTA & ELEANOR A Contemporary Retelling of Jekyll and Hyde

by Robert Louis Stevenson, Libby Spurrier [Dramatist] | Read by Holliday Grainger, Carla Mendonça, Clive Mantle, Miranda Raison

Audible, Inc. | Unabridged
Audio Theater

Spurrier reimagines Stevenson's classic tale, modernizing the narrative for this audiobook. The story involves two female leads flanked by friends and colleagues who are attempting to unravel the mystery of their strange behavior. While listeners will need to suspend disbelief if they are already familiar with the story of Jekyll and Hyde, this is, nonetheless, a solid... Read More

JEFF WAYNE'S THE WAR OF THE WORLDS: THE MUSICAL DRAMA

JEFF WAYNE'S THE WAR OF THE WORLDS: THE MUSICAL DRAMA

by H.G. Wells, Jeff Wayne | Read by Michael Sheen, Taron Egerton, Theo James, Adrian Edmondson, Anna-Marie Wayne

Audible, Inc. | Audio Program
Audio Theater

The science-fiction classic undergoes a fantastic modernization, thanks to Jeff Wayne's energetic score and a cast of talented narrators. Michael Sheen capably steps into the character of the unnamed journalist and imbues his narration with steady calm as he recounts the Martian invasion of England. A varied cast coupled with subtle sound effects keeps the drama feeling fresh... Read More

LAST SEEN WEARING

LAST SEEN WEARING

by David Hewson | Read by Samantha Dakin, Stuart Milligan, John Guerassio, Laurence Bouvard, Vaughn Johseph, Martin T. Sherman, Adela Leiro, Jared Zeus, Danielle Lewis, Lorelei King, Thomas Stroppel, Paul Panting, Lachele Carl

Audible, Inc. | Unabridged
Audio Theater

Narrator Laurence Bouvard gives a nuanced portrayal of a down-on-her-luck private eye who takes on a missing persons case that quickly goes sideways and becomes way too personal. Audible goes all in with film-like production values, first-rate original music, and, best of all, evocative sound effects such as the lurching rumble of a New York subway car and the loud open space...

MAGUS ELGAR: SEASON ONE

MAGUS ELGAR: SEASON ONE

by Kennedy Phillips | Read by William Violenus, Christopher Moore, Sandra Espinoza, Tian Wang, and a Full Cast

Author's Republic | Audio Program
Audio Theater

Listeners meet Magus Elgar; his apprentice, Udo; and the story's narrator in the middle of a noisy battle against another mage who has assumed the form of a dragon. The opening is a lot to take in and sort out at first, but it's worth the effort. The production is a rollicking tale, funny and action packed, with inventive wordplay and outstanding sound effects. Those effects... Read More

VENOM: LETHAL PROTECTOR

VENOM: LETHAL PROTECTOR

by James R. Tuck | Read by Richard Rohan and a Full Cast

GraphicAudio | Audio Program
Audio Theater

Symbiote superhero Venom's voyage to San Francisco comes to life with a full cast and a variety of sound effects that immerse the listener in the story. The sound effects in many ways enhance the listening experience but at the same time can be a bit repetitive. The real power of this adaptation is the cast. Having such a variety in the narration layers on the detail, ensuring... Read More
