Hi folks – you may have noticed that the cupboard has been bare of late, and by that we mean this blog! Truth be told, we have been so busy the past few months, there’s been little time to blog! But, this weekend we have several big announcements to make, and rather than spring ‘em all on you at once, a “bring-you-up-to-speed” post is in order in preparation.
- The Battle for LA recording session went wonderfully. Everyone had a great time (as is almost always the case at these sessions), and Karen and Tom are hard at work for the next behind-the-scenes video, while Lance begins work on the first voice-over edit. Estimated time of delivery: winter of 2013. CD and Mp3.
- Thanks to everyone who dropped by our tables at APE in San Francisco and New York Comic Con! Elaine and Bill will be at Coast City Con at the Double Tree Hilton in Portland, ME this coming weekend, where Bill will entertain with a few readings…as well as a live 5 minute teaser of something really special we have planned for next year! Plus we’ll have a booth where you can buy CD’s and download cards, as well as Starstruck graphic novels. In Portland this weekend? Come by the Double Tree, we’d love to see you!
- We’re happy to say that comics legend TRINA ROBBINS will be adapting her Honey West story “Killer on the Keys” as our next HW AudioComics offering in 2013. It’s the mid-60′s in Los Angeles, and someone is out to off the star attraction of the Sunset Strip’s grooviest club, the Purple Pussy. How will Honey catch the killer? Last time around she was a movie extra…this time she’s a go-go dancer!
- Also happening in 2013 will be the remaining chapters of our first Domino Lady serial, “Moxie’s Gamble” and “Blood is Thicker” by Rich Harvey, and directed by Lance Roger Axt. Mind you our first Pulp Adventures trilogy…could wind up being a tetralogy…either way Karen Stilwell, Peter Carini, Peter Papadopoulos, Bill Chessman, Kevin Donnelly, and Mandy Brown are coming back for more!
- Finally, we’ve some outstanding reviews come in for our 2012 slate, and you can find them on our press page here!
Okay, big news coming Friday…hold on to your hats…

First and foremost, mastering has begun on our second Batsons piece, The Trouble with Fang! We should have it ready to go in the next week; my thanks to those who pre-ordered Fang! a while back and have been patiently waiting; you folks will find a little something extra as a “thanks for holding on” gift with your download. And for the rest of you, yes, Fang! will be available through many of the usual suspects this month; here’s a shot of the artwork, care of the Fonteseses:
Also, you can now find The Domino Lady: All’s Fair in War through CDBaby: here is the link (you will note that with CDBaby, it’s one continuous piece over three separate tracks; simply put, it was easier to enter it as a single).
Titanium Rain and Honey West CD’s are almost done and will be in the mail before too long. We’re happy to say that our good friends at ZBS will be including the CD’s and Mp3 releases of these two titles as part of their online catalogue, as well as (again) CDBaby. Links to come!
Titanium Rain Kickstarter/IndieGoGo contributors: be checking for updates! That means your inboxes and spamboxes!
Finally, we are proud to announce that Bill Dufris has won his first Audie (the audio book equivalent of the Oscars) from the Audiobook Publishers Association. No longer can he say “always a bridesmaid…” His award is for the reading of the non-fiction title The Murder of the Century by Paul Collins, published by AudioGo. NICE JOB, BILL-O!

Hi folks, Lance here:
As we speak, Bill Dufris is taking a much needed day off from the final mix of Titanium Rain. This past weekend I flew to Maine where we bounced ideas off of each other in Bill’s studio, spending close to 15 hours a day mixing and layering SFX and Jonathan Sharp’s soundtrack. It was here that Bill made a fateful decision, one that we all agree with: the piece as a whole was approaching the 90 minute mark. It will most likely be longer. Obviously longer than a single CD release. With that in mind, we have decided to make the first volume of TR a double CD, akin to that of the release of Starstruck. The simple reality is that we could make cuts…but said cuts would simply diminsh the quality of the piece, of Josh’s script, and what Bill has managed to do with it. We couldn’t bring ourselves to trim any of it. As it was with Starstruck, the new price is $22.95 for the CD, and $9.95 for digital downloads sold through the AudioComics store (obviously, the price will be different for Mp3′s sold through iTunes, Amazon Mp3, etc. as is always the case with third party digital distributors). For anyone who purchased a CD or Mp3 prior to this announcement, the price change does not affect your purchase.
15 hours a day was spent fine tuning 15 minutes at a time. What I heard through Bill’s speakers blew me out of the water. I kid you not. You will not be disappointed.

Damn good question. Right now Bill Dufris is holed away in the studio, finishing mixing on his four pieces, while Lance continues to mix The Domino Lady and prep for the opening of our website store in the next week, and work with CJ Henderson the adaptation of Battle for LA. Elaine is updating the Starstruck website, and is starting in on the scripts for the Galactic Girl Guides series, with every episode clocking in at 10 – 15 minutes. A lot of potential projects have come our way, and we’re still sorting through the 30 or so projects that came our way last year. One major announcement for everyone: the first five AudioComics pieces of 2012 (Honey West: Murder on Mars, Titanium Rain Vol. 1, The Domino Lady: All’s Fair in War, and The Batsons: Carmilla’s Crush and The Trouble with Fang) will be released in May.
However, there is one thing we can share with you, and that is the artwork for the Mp3 of our first Domino Lady piece, Rich Harvey’s “All’s Fair in War.” There are a number of artists we plan to work with in the future on CD and Mp3 art, especially on original pieces: Lee Moyer is one, Jay Piscopo is on the radar…we can add Paul Sizer to the list. Paul’s art was originally part of Warren Ellis’ “Remake/Remodel” project; he kindly made a few changes, and voila!
Ain’t she purty?

We’re back, if only for a brief interlude:
The next month-and-a-half is about to be a busy one, to say the least, with four projects being recorded, not to mention Lance’s work with the NATF in less than two scant weeks, and the remaining days of our crowdfunding extension, so let’s get to it:
First, we want to give a big thanks to those who supported Titanium Rain on IndieGoGo:
James Cornell, Algernon D’Ammassa, Caine Door, Thaddeus Howze, Elizabeth Knowelden, Patrick McEvoy, Judy Molner, Keith Reagan, Stephen Edward Vale, JK Woodward, Rodger Axt, David Hammond, Karen Stilwell, Michael Thomas, Adam and Comfort Withers, Lewis Davis, Craig Foley, Bryan Glass, Fred Greenhlagh, Christopher Schager, Sandy Sherr, Kevin Donnelly, Mike Rocha, and Kevin Lansford (along with our “anonymous” contributors).
Right now we are just over two weeks into our Kickstarter extension at http://kck.st/p93Hg7. Currently we are at 43% funded, and eleven days remaining; make a contribution! And remember that a $10 contribution can go a long way and is thoroughly appreciated, not to mention you are pre-paying for your digital download of Titanium Rain!
All names from both campaigns will eventually find their way to the AudioComics Company website, which is undergoing a slow make-over. In the next few months expect to see more pages and a different layout, all on a different server, courtesy of our wonderous web designer Kat Rocha.
On November 5 and 6, The AudioComics Company will re-enter The Studio in Portland, ME to record Titanium Rain on Saturday, and Honey West on Sunday. Bill Dufris will direct both works, with Jim Begley, one of the best engineers in Maine, supervising in the control room. Josh Finney and Kat Rocha, and Elaine Lee will all be in attendance, and our acting company for the weekend currently includes Lance Roger Axt, Carrington MacDuffie, Elizabeth Knowelden, Phil Wells, Brent Askari, and Gary Guzzo (with more actors to be announced later). Maria Myshrall will also be hand as our official photographer.
Then on November 19, Lance Roger Axt will take the director’s chair at Broken Radio in San Francisco to record the first two Pulp Adventures pieces, The Green Lama and the Curse of Liberty Island and The Domino Lady: All’s Fair in War. The previously announced third piece, The Green Lama and the Case of the Forgotten Gods, will record in 2012 (also in the Bay Area), giving writer Algernon D’Ammassa more time to re-work the script (he’s a very busy guy right now). The cast features the previously announced Craig Neibaur as The Green Lama and Karen Stilwell as The Domino Lady, as well as Perry Aliado, Mandy Brown, Peter Carini, Bill Chessman, Kevin Donnelly, Suzan Lorraine, and Peter Papadopoulos.
In addition, Lance is co-producing the upcoming National Audio Theatre Festivals Tony Hawkins Advanced Workshop in Los Angeles October 21 – 23 focusing on voice-over in the animation industry, with workshops (in and out of the studio) with Lucien Dodge (Pokemon), Corey Burton (Thundercats, Star Wars: The Clone Wars), and comics/animation legend Mark Evanier (The Garfield Show, Dungeons and Dragons, Scooby and Scrappy Doo). There are still a few slots available, but only a few: you can register at https://www.regonline.com/audioartofanimation. Plus Elaine is working on several other scripts and an exciting Starstruck project, Bill is editing and mixing and editing and mixing, and Lance is working on the adaptation of …okay, we can’t talk about that yet.
It should also be noted that the planned audio adaptation of the romance webcomic Somewhere in Between has also been moved to 2013, as creator/writer/artist Megan Levens, much like Green Lama writer Algernon D’Ammassa, is inundated with projects (as are we) and thus we’ve moved the piece up a bit (okay, A LOT) to accomodate everyone’s schedules.
Finally, we can announce that in late February, we will take pre-orders for the digital downloads of The Batsons: Carmilla’s Crush, The Batsons: The Trouble with Fang!, The Domino Lady: All’s Fair in War, Titanium Rain Volume One, Honey West: Murder on Mars, and the compact disc releases of Titanium Rain Volume One, and Honey West: Murder on Mars, all of which will be released in spring. Then we gotta start prepping for the rest of the year!
So it’s going to be a busy-as-hell month-and-a-half for everyone, but we can’t wait for you to hear the results!
Finally, the Kickstarter link one last time: http://kck.st/p93Hg7!

TITANIUM RAIN COMES TO AUDIO
The AudioComics Company to adapt 01Publishing property as a full-cast radio drama
For immediate release:
To be alive is to be at odds with the world. Man against nature. Man against man. The instinct to survive is what has made us who we are.
The AudioComics Company is excited to announce that they will be adapting the graphic novel series Titanium Rain as one of their next full-cast audio theatre productions, with the first book in the trilogy recording this fall for a winter 2012 release, with parts two and three to be recorded later that year. The work will be adapted for audio by co-creators Josh Finney and Kat Rocha, and directed by AudioComics Company Co-Producer William Dufris.
Produced by 01Publishing and published by Archaia Entertainment, Titanium Rain is a sci-fi war epic set in the year 2031 where a civil war in China has escalated into a global conflict that has decimated entire nations and millions of innocent lives. And for many, like US Air Force pilot Alec Killian, survival in this new age means that man and machine must exist as one. In the spirit of films such as Ghost in the Shell and Blackhawk Down, Titanium Rain follows Killian’s journey through mankind’s worst, only to discover its best.
“Titanium Rain is the antithesis of the post-apocalyptic ‘trend’ we’re seeing today in film, on television, in comic books. That’s part of the reason why it’s such an appealing audio project, the idea that we can rise above our mistakes rather than be dragged down by them is one worth exploring,” says director William Dufris, who also directed The AudioComics Company’s premiere production, Starstruck. “Also, it’s a great character-driven book. Actors are always looking for roles they can really sink their teeth into, and TR is chock full of great character studies.”
Co-creator Josh Finney: “From Titanium Rain‘s initial conception I had always wanted to hear the story translated into an audio production, going so far to actually commission a full-blown soundtrack by musician Jonathan Sharp (New Mind, Bio-Tek). Now with the AudioComics Company onboard this dream is finally shaping into a reality. Stay tuned. This is going to be amazing.”
The first volume of Titanium Rain has been a consistent best seller, both in the US and abroad. The title was also the center of a controversy when the first volume was delayed when Chinese printing companies refused to print the book due to Titanium Rain‘s so-called “politically sensitive” content, leading to Archaia Entertainment’s decision to manufacture their books elsewhere.
In addition to adapting the work, both Finney and Rocha will attend the voice-over recording sessions for Part One of the audio trilogy, and will have a hand in casting the project as well. The completed piece will be available on compact disc and pay-per-Mp3 downloads; Jonathan Sharp’s soundtrack for Titanium Rain will also be available as a separate Mp3 download, to be released concurrently with Part One of the TR audio production.
01Publishing is the combined talents of husband and wife team Josh Finney and Kat Rocha. Glitchwerk specializes in science-fiction/fantasy art, concept art, and graphic design. Their style features a fusion of 3D modeling, digital painting, and traditional art techniques. In addition to their original comic book properties Utopiates, Titanium Rain, LD30, and the forthcoming World War Kaiju, Glitchwerk’s art has been featured in the acclaimed UK magazine Interzone, on several CD album covers, in numerous collectable card and online games, and on television (Star Trek: Enterprise). Titanium Rain is one of the few graphic novels on the comics landscape created entirely by a married couple.
The AudioComics Company, under the guidance of producers Lance Roger Axt, William Dufris, and Elaine Lee, provides superior audio entertainment with its professional full-cast audio theatre productions of both licensed properties and original works from the world of comic books, graphic novels, and related media, accessible in today’s market with today’s sound. The AudioComics team is working to establish relationships with top name comic book companies, sci-fi writers, sponsors and the entertainment industry in Hollywood and New York, and to give these audio theatre pieces worldwide exposure. Their debut production of the original play script of Elaine Lee and Michael Kaluta’s Starstruck has received critical acclaim from comics and audio professionals alike.

Well, it’s been a week. I am fried, basted, roasted, and cooked to perfection. Bill is dealing with some family issues right now in RI, but I know he was pretty zonked upon his return to Portland. The same applied to everybody in the Starstruck crew come last Sunday night, but the concept of “sleep” is not one that you normally associate with a sci-fi convention.
As I sit here in front of my PC I’m going through the busy weekend in my head, which started with meeting up with Bill Dufris during our stopover in Philadelphia the day before I-CON. I always find that arriving anywhere a day early is a smart move; traveling is tiring enough as it is, but when you’re moving through different time zones, having that good night’s sleep three hours ahead or behind is good for the body. Off to the Hilton Garden Inn, where we were staying for the weekend instead of the “official hotel” of I-CON due to a screw-up, the Holiday Inn a few blocks up, for dinner and an early night’s sleep (well early for me; Bill was scoring a non-fiction novel for a forthcoming audio book recording). I will say that staying at the Hilton was actually a better deal: fewer I-CON’ers meant a quiet night’s sleep!
Up late the next morning to meet Elaine Lee and, for the first time, the illustrious illustrator Michael Wm. Kaluta, where we played catch-up, organized our schedules and those of our actors, off to Stony Brook U. by 3pm to register our gold “Guest” badges, get the lay of the land (including the all-important Green Room…”food, glorious food”…), and set up our table…which winds up being in a different building from everywhere else, but hey, grin and bear it; we put out our compact discs (complete with a cool stand made by Elaine), and copies of the recently-released Starstruck Collected Edition, and issues of Elaine’s Honey West mini-series and Chicks in Capes prose book (both from Moonstone), and Bill and I sat and watched as attendees slooowly trickled in (one of the downsides to being in residence at a school still in session: no one can get in before 5:00pm) while Elaine and Michael are running from panel to panel (fortunately all in the same building). Which pretty much takes out doing any kind of technical run-through Friday! “Saturday morning at 11am” is not going to work, as the I-CON organizers discover to their chagrin. So we watch the attendees, say it with me now, slooowly trickle in… That is, until 10pm when Bill and I pack up the table and head over to the campus radio station to appear on the annual “Mystery Guest special” on the long-running sci-fi radio show in radio “Destinies,” hosted by our Narrator Dr. Howard Margolin.
The show was free-form “plug-away” fun with (for the first time) I-CON’s author guest of honor, in this case horror legend and all-around-cool guy Joe Lansdale; his daughter, author and country singer Kasey Lansdale; Neil Levin, publisher of Dark Quest Books; Glenn Hauman of ComicMix; author Aaron Rosenberg; from Joe’s forthcoming film Christmas with the Dead, actor Damien Maffei and SFX artist Marcus Cook; and making a record-tying 23rd appearance on the show, writer Keith R.A. DeCandido. Totally made up for the four hours before it!
So, it’s 12:15am; Michael is patiently waiting in the cold for us to take him back to his hotel in Elaine’s car…and for the second time that day we get lost heading back to the hotels. How is it humanly possible to get that lost on what should be three stretches of road? Boggles the mind. Anyway…
Three-and-a-half hours of sleep later we’re up getting ready for a business breakfast with two pulp writers we’ll be working with very closely over the next year or so, and then its off to Stony Brook to set up our simple sound system and rehearse for the first time with all of our actors; we knew the first show would be the technical run-through with Murphy’s Law in full effect. Well, apparently Mr. Murphy decided to f*** with one of the CD players, which died for good at the end of the performance. After a Q & A session with some serious Starstruck fans (take that, obnoxious anime cosplayers!), we retreated to the Green Room for a needed lunch break (note: almost every time I was in there I ran into Julie Benz from Dexter and No Ordinary Family…was the universe telling me something? Yeah, it’s telling me “every time you’re in there you’ll run into Julie Benz from Dexter and No Ordinary Family and that’s it”) and to work out plans for the 5:30pm show…which aside from that one annoying Pokemon girl going in and out and in and out, worked out far better. Well, somewhat better, let’s be honest.
I have to admit, despite the fact that some of our actors had no voice-over experience and simply wanted to be a part of the “Starstruck: Running Scared” experience, they had a very good sense of timing, were ready for anything thrown at them, and most importantly, had a lot of heart. So we want to give a big shout out to Denise, Brennan, and Dr. Margolin, but also to Jaime Andrews, Angelica Pasquini, and Jessica Rionero of Pink Axe, Jenna Hellmuth, Thomas Kyle Fiorello, “Captain Zorikh” Lequidre, Josh Rubino, and Arielle Somerville, and of course to Mike Kaluta!
Anyway, after the show its pouring rain (and I mean monsoon). Nobody was really up for the banquet, so Bill and I, Denise, Elaine, Brennan, and Elaine’s hubby Richmond found a great Italian place and chilled (Michael headed back to the Holiday Inn for a early night’s sleep) over big bowls of pasta and bottles of wine, before heading back for an actual night’s sleep, before one last day of I-CON panels, a chance to check out the Dealer Room (apparently very few sales were made, so I feel a little bit better…not by much, but y’know), meet a few famous faces, and get lost again while heading back to the Hilton.
Well, let’s start out with two announcements, both of which were made on Howard Margolin’s radio show Friday night: first off, Bill and I are thrilled to announce that The AudioComics Company is a trio again, as Elaine Lee, the co-creator of Starstruck, is joining us as a Producer. Her marketing ideas, her connections, and her enthusiasm makes her a valuable asset to this publishing/production start-up we call AudioComics. Second, we are putting together an Advisory Board of notable notables from the worlds of audio and comics, who can provide us with valuable advice (from “oh, that’s great” to “are you freakin’ crazy?”), and the first name of said Board is the other half of Starstruck, Michael Wm. Kaluta. More names will be announced in the coming months.
Right now the three of us are re-grouping, developing the game plan to push The AudioComics Company forward over the next couple of years, a game plan which involves:
- Re-issuing Starstruckin 2012 through a new worldwide digital distributor;
- The acquisition of a publicist to aid with media press releases within the entertainment industry;
- Development and implementation of an AudioComics application for iPhones and iPads;
- More convention appearances beyond the two planned appearances in 2011 as both exhibitors and performers (presenting everything from readings to fully-produced recordings);
- And, as Starstruck benefits WMPG FM in Portland, selecting several recordings to benefit another not-for-profit, one that has done incredible work on behalf of comic creators-in-need.
And if even half of the connections made with creators that weekend pan out, we’ll be keeping busy through 2014. Over the course of the next week, you can look forward to news up the yin-yang, but for now I leave you with some unfortunate news: the invincible Gene Colan has again been hospitalized. I’ve been reading Cliff Meth’s blog for updates, and apparently a procedure has been planned to alleviate any pain. “To continue generating what might become much-needed funds, we are selling off the last of Gene’s artwork, as well as some books and comics.” There are some great deals at the Gene Colan Garage Sale, and I hope some of you will take advantage of them. The rundown is at http://bit.ly/eS05PF.
Okay okay okay, a few more pics from Long Island:

How did Verloona’s human assistant Norm become NORM, the Siren 3′s computer? What is Rootersnoos Ferret Jimmy the Snout’s connection to Running in Place life extension program?

Kaluta’s Starstruck: Running Scared! As we speak, director Bill Dufris is pulling SFX, and we are hearing the first group of I-CON voices, some of who may take on as many as four different roles. Two weeks to go…

Hi all, Lance and Bill-O here,
We’re pleased to announce that the adult voices for The Batsons have been cast: in addition to our old friend Brent “Kalif Bajar” Askari, The AudioComics Company formally welcomes Lisa Muller-Jones and Kate Davis to the fold, as well as co-creators Ron and Justine Fontes. We’ll be reading various kids voices as well, with full casting completed in the next two weeks. The Dufris living room will host the first full readings of “The Trouble with Fang!” and “Carmilla’s Crush” this Sunday, March 13, and with it comes the electricity that comes with the development of a new work. We’re very hopeful that this will be the beginning of The Batsons‘ invasion of children’s publishing, including graphic novels and down the road, (we hope) animated television. And it all starts with AudioComics.
