Capitalizing on their success with DC Comics' Infinite Crisis
,Graphic Audio is producing several more polished book-based stories from DC. The Justice League of America encounter a wide proliferation of meta-humans (who all sound like they come from the U.K.) who transform into bug-like creatures that burrow into the earth and reemerge to wreak havoc. Though the episodic story lacks the development and sophistication of the company's previous productions, GraphicAudio still creates a beautiful mix of dialogue, sound effects and background music. Disappointingly, much of the soundtrack has been recycled from previous productions. Richard Rohan's narration still captivates with its deep tone and sense of immediacy. A Pocket Star paperback.

Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Green Lantern what more could any science-fiction fan want? This stunning production brings them all together as the Justice League series continues, casting our favorite heroes against a strange alien force that is spreading across the earth at a rapid pace. With eerie background music and realistic sound effects, listening is close to leaping into the pages of a comic book and experiencing the action firsthand. With a talented cast of actors, including James Konicek, Colleen Delany, and Andy Clemence, this production is the best in the series thus far, whisking listeners off to the furthest reaches of the globe and never sounding the slightest bit cheesy. Director Richard Rohan guides the way, striking a balance between the story and the intense action. L.B. --Audiofile Magazine 2008
I'd like to emphasize how wonderful Graphic Audio's productions are when converting a novel to audiobook. The music, sound effects and voice work really place you into the action and keep you glued to the audiobook. There were times where I would intentionally drive slower when listening in the car or find more housework to do so I could wait that much longer before I had to shut off the audiobook. It reminds me of the old radio serials where your imagination worked to move the story along. However, comparing this audiobook with a radio program is like comparing (to stay in the comic book genre) the 60s Batman television series to the 2008 theatrical release of The Dark Knight. The cast of voices all perform their roles as superheroes while the narrator pushes the non-dialogue sections of the book, creating a constant flow of storytelling mixed with superb sound effects and music. When Graphic Audio promises "A movie in your mind," not only do they deliver, they deliver with a punch. --SF Site 2008
