The AudioComics Company to adapt RAW Studios’ mini-series as a full-cast audio drama
For immediate release:
In early 2013 the AudioComics Company will again enter the recording studio, this time to record the full-cast audio production of RAW Studios’ mini-series Bad Planet. The creation of RAW founders Thomas Jane (actor in The Mist, The Punisher, HBO’s Hung) and artist Tim Bradstreet (Star Wars, Hellblazer, Human Target) with writer Steve Niles (30 Days of Night, Criminal Macabre, The Mystery Society), the work will be directed by AudioComics Company Co-Producer William Dufris.
An homage to the classic science fiction and horror stories of the 1950’s, Bad Planet is the universal classification given to worlds that have fallen prey to predator races. Now the planet Earth appears to be the next to fall when a race of invading “deathspiders” wreak havoc on the populace. Our only chance for salvation lies in the hands of two scientists from opposite ends of the Earth, an African child prodigy, and a Phaedon warrior whose unwitting actions led to the destruction of his race.
Thomas Jane: “I heard their production of Starstruck, and thought ‘these guys are fantastic.’ This production’s going to rock.” The AudioComics Company: “With Starstruck we set the bar. With Titanium Rain we set it higher. With Bad Planet, we’re setting the bar on fire.” As with other AudioComics productions, the Bad Planet audio will be available on both compact disc and pay-per-Mp3 digital download, and for sale through AudioComics’ and RAW’s webstores, iTunes, Amazon, and at comic book and science fiction conventions.
RAW Studios is the comics and book publishing arm of RAW Entertainment, founded by actor Thomas Jane in partnership with Eisner Award nominated illustrator/production designer Tim Bradstreet. The subjects of our books reflect our love for the heady days of EC Comics, with a dash of Creepy and Eerie, and a heavy dose of today’s top talented creators. Horror, Sci-Fi, Crime, and Fantasy – No genre is sacred or safe from our spin. What we offer is an ALTERNATIVE to the spandex and cape-wearing creations of big publishers. But ultimately, we’re here to remind folks how good comics can be.
