In the early morning hours of February 25, 1945, US anti-aircraft shore artillery opened fire on an unidentified object in the skies above Los Angeles, California. Over the course of the next three hours, “swarms of planes” were reported as roaming the skies above the city of angels, though in the end the only actual damage was the result of traffic accidents, friendly fire from the attack, and in some cases, heart attacks caused by stress.
The public was later told that the attack was a false alarm. Moonstone Books, however, has unearthed the government documents that show the truth…and how some of the greatest heroes in pulp history fought back against…the “event”…
Battle for LA is AudioComics’ second collaboration with Moonstone Entertainment, Inc., adapted from the illustrated novella by CJ Henderson and Mark Sparacio, and starring pulp heroes The Black Bat, Domino Lady, and The Phantom Detective, with special appearances by Secret Agent X and classic comic character Airboy. America’s pulp and comic avengers pit their wits (and guns) against a menace from another world in a story actually inspired by true events!
MARK SPARACIO (Battle for LA illustrator): “It sounds GREAT!”
RUDY PANUCCI, POPCULT: “Dramatic audio presentations, like comics, have the advantage of being able to recreate bygone eras without busting the budget. This production is spot-on…a great value for over forty minutes of rollicking old-school adventure.”
BOBBY NASH (Author, The Domino Lady; Secret Agent X; Evil Ways): “Battle for LA is team-up heaven for pulp fans. This one is a must listen.”
Battle for LA features the vocal talents of: JOSH POLLOCK as THE PHANTOM DETECTIVE, JOHN M. STRAIN as THE BLACK BAT, KAREN STILWELL as THE DOMINO LADY, CHRIS MARTIN as AIRBOY, and MATT MORRIS as SECRET AGENT X.
