In the year 2031 mankind’s survival instinct is put to the test when a civil war in China spirals into global conflict. Nations are destroyed. Millions are killed. And for many, like US Air Force pilot Alec Killian, survival will mean shedding some of his humanity in exchange for biotech and machine. Is this the ultimate corruption of nature, or the birth pains of a new chapter in mankind’s evolution?
This is the basis for one of the most acclaimed graphic novel series in recent years: Titanium Rain, created and produced by 01 Publishing and published by Archaia Entertainment. Now Titanium Rain makes the jump from the printed page to full-cast audio movie adapted for audio by co-creator Josh Finney and directed by William Dufris.

BROKEN FRONTIER: “As a radio play Titanium Rain could quite easily be listened to by someone unfamiliar with the source material and enjoyed as a gripping piece of audio drama on its own merits. However, I think it works best as complementary material to the book, adding an extra layer of insight and appreciation for its audience into this minutely detailed reality and the motivations of the characters that inhabit it. From that perspective questions of superfluity are easily dismissed.
My fervent hope is that this dip into the transmedia waters proves successful enough for Finney and Rocha to be able to revisit these characters again in the near future, in either format. Fully realised and cleverly conceptualised fictional environments like this don’t come around too often in comics. We need to appreciate them when they do…” Read the complete review here
MICHAEL COLBERT (comics/screenwriter, creator of 01Publishing’s Crazy Mary): “If you like your stories smart, intense, well written with crisp dialogue and a hard core concept that comes across smooth this is the story for you. Science fiction/cyberpunk/war story that elevates the genres it’s working in. The graphic novel is amazing and the audio drama replaces all the visual intensity of the book with an aural experience worth the price of admission. You feel the bullets slamming into the jets, the pull of G forces on your chest and a living breathing world inside your ears.”
PATRICK McEVOY (comic artist, Starkweather: Immortal) “As a fan of good science fiction AND audio plays, I’ll say that this one hits on both counts! Based on the excellent graphic novel of the same name, the Titanium Rain audio drama is an outstanding use of the medium. Excellent acting, writing, sound design and music throughout make this a truly gripping and entertaining experience.”
