AUDIOCOMICS’ TITANIUM RAIN WINS BIG!
The Near-Future, Science Fiction, War Epic From AudioComics
Wins Silver Mark Time Award and is Chosen as Audie Finalist
in the Categories of Audio Drama and Original Work.
AudioComics is proud to announce that their 2012 “audio movie” production of Titanium Rain: Episode One, adapted by Josh Finney from the Archaia Entertainment graphic novel by Finney and Kat Rocha, has won a Silver Mark Time Award, AudioFile Magazine’s Earphones Award, and has been nominated for the prestigious 2013 Audie Awards in the categories of Audio Drama and Original Work.
Sponsored and presented each year by the Audiobook Publishers Association (APA), a not-for-profit association that “advocates the common, collective business interests of audio publishers,” the Audies is considered the Oscars of the American audiobook industry, recognizing outstanding achievement in audiobooks and spoken word entertainment. Presented by The American Society for Science Fiction Audio (ASFAFA), The Mark Time Award is given each year to honor the Best Science Fiction Audio Production of the Year.
Set in the year 2031, during a civil war in China that has spiraled into global conflict, Titanium Rain: Episode One introduces audiences to USAF pilot Alec Killian and the members of Phoenix Squadron, a biotech-enhanced elite force who walk the line between man and machine. The audio adaptation was directed by Audie-winning AudioComics co-founder William Dufris, and has received unanimous praise from critics and fans alike. Dirk Maggs, award-winning Director/Producer of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy for BBC Radio, has called Titanium Rain, “One of the best examples of immersive entertainment in a creative field undergoing a huge renaissance at the moment.”
AudioComics’ association with the husband-and-wife team of Finney and Rocha will continue in June of 2014, with the recording of Titanium Rain: Embedded, a single narrator piece, set in the world of Titanium Rain.
