Moonstone Entertainment and THE AudioComics COMPANY Announce CollaboratiON
The AudioComics Company to produce adaptations of Moonstone titles beginning with Honey West and The Battle for Los Angeles
The AudioComics Company is pleased to announce that it will act as the official audio theatre production arm for Moonstone Entertainment, Inc., producing full-cast adaptations of its licensed and original comic books and graphic novels, as well as selections from their line of short story anthologies. These pieces will be available on compact disc and pay-per-Mp3 digital download through a variety of outlets, including Moonstone’s online store, at comic book conventions, the iTunes store, and community audio drama showcases.
Their first collaboration will be Honey West, adapted by Elaine (Starstruck) Lee from her mini-series “Murder on Mars.” Hollywood’s toughest and sexiest private eye has gone undercover as an extra on a low-budget science fiction flick to find the murderer of sex symbol Zu Zu Varga, only to find that (shock and surprise) everyone’s got a motive. And then there’s that killer robot… Also slated for production is the team-up special The Battle for Los Angeles, which is a part of Moonstone’s “Return of the Originals” line. Starring The Black Bat, Domino Lady, G-8, Secret Agent X, and The Phantom Detective, these avengers pit their wits (and guns) against a menace from another world in 1945 Los Angeles in a story actually inspired by true events.
Moonstone EIC Joe Gentile: “Moonstone is super excited to hear our stories done in this dramatic fashion! AudioComics brings a very professional quality sound, as well as great voice actors to the table, and the final result is the best we have heard! It’s not a plain ol’ audio book, it’s an audio play, like a private performance in your living room!” AudioComics co-founder Lance Roger Axt echoes Joe’s sentiments: “Audio theatre is simply one of the most exciting and accessible forms of entertainment available. This is not lost on Joe and the good folks at Moonstone Entertainment, and we’re very excited to be working with them and their roster of properties. Actually, ‘very excited’ may be an understatement! I mean have you seen their roster of properties lately?”
Honey West records this fall for a winter, 2012 release, directed by William Dufris. This first production will also mark the beginning of an ongoing series of HW projects with Moonstone. The Battle for Los Angeles will record in winter of 2012, adapted by CJ Henderson and Lance Roger Axt (from Henderson’s script), and directed by Mr. Axt, with a planned spring of 2012 release.
