Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The subtitle inclines one to believe that Superman and the Justice League are up against an indestructible and ceaseless force in this full-cast production. In an ironic twist, that foe turns out to be the weather. With each of the heroes' cities besieged by tornadoes, blizzards, gigantic hail and lighting storms, Superman must rally and lead the Justice League to victory by determining who or what is manipulating the weather. Narrator Richard Rohan (who also directed the production) drives the story with a commanding voice that uses speed and emphasis to create momentum and intensity within the story. With an energetic soundtrack of sound effects, listeners will certainly feel the excitement generated by this compelling production. A Pocket Star paperback. (Oct.)

Review

"Very entertaining! [Graphic Audio] always gets the voices right on the money for the characters. Great story!" -- Christopher Woods

"First one in the series that I watched (in my mind), and it is the perfect one to start off with. Good sound, very good character development; although it is about Superman, we get the story of most of the JLA. The story is deep enough, and effects special enough to have a high repeatability rating for me also. I can see listening to this every once in a while." -- Mitchell Nelson

"You will not be disappointed in picking this one up. The background on Superman and other characters was creatively done and pulled us into the story even more. I'm hooked on the Flash and Green Lantern characters." -- John Newport

The sensory romp that is Graphic Audio s Justice League of America series returns with the most well-known superhero of them all, the Man of Steel. In this installment, directed by Richard Rohan and adapted from the original story by Dan Smith, a terrorist manipulates the weather so as to render the JLA ineffective against his supreme power. Featuring a grand cast, including Michael Glenn, Tim Carlin, Faith Potts, and Michael John Casey, to name a few, the production springs to life with a movie-in-your-mind experience. Realistic sound effects, over-the-top production values, and a rousing score combine to make this audiobook a standout in the fantasy genre.

Format: Audio CD
Performed by 29 actors.
Duration: 6 hours

GraphicAudio promises "A Movie In Your Mind" and they come awfully close with 29 actors, special effects, music and a go-go-go plot. While not the best of the Justice League series that I have listened to, it was still quite entertaining.

Superman and the rest of the Justice League get caught up in a series of weather-related missions and about one-third of the way into the story the JLA begins to suspect that someone is manipulating the weather - summertime blizzards, ultra-thick fogs, record numbers of tornadoes, droughts and even worse abound. The questions, of course, are who is doing this and why are they doing it?

The main characters in this mission are Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, The Martian Manhunter and the Atom who mostly sits in the satellite headquarters monitoring maps and analyzing data. Superman, though, is the star.We get to see how he he somehow pulls off having a secret identity and still has time to be the "Man of Steel." We learn about his specially designed interest to the apartment he shares with his wife, Lois Lane and how he manages to turn in his assignments for the Daily Planet despite the time he takes out to save the world on a regular basis.

Superman has long conversations with his parents, Lois Lane, The Flash (including a nifty little cross-country run together), the Martian Manhunter, Batman and a particularly good one with the Green Lantern in which he is directly asked if he has ever considered just taking over the world and using his powers to make things about as good as they can be. The answer? Yes (who wouldn't, just for a moment?

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I've now read Graphic Audio Justice League of America titles on Superman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern, and are in the middle of The Flash. These audio CD's have a full-cast with additional orchestral/music scores and sound effects. It's nice to hear the same voices doing the same characters across multiple audio books. As a reader of comic books when I was young, it's nice to come back to the same big name superheroes. Each individual story includes the superhero's original tale woven into the narrative and each provides additional insight into their daily lives. DC Comics has always been more black-and-white, while Marvel and other independents have been more "grey", in their treatment of issues/characters/motives and this continues in these stories. I listen to these in the car and its really easy to visualize what is happening as I pass the time on my long commutes. The use of a narrator is very helpful as I've listened to other audio CD's that don't make use of a narrator and try to directly port the story from a comic book and those are hard to follow in terms of scenes/location changes.

This one on Superman is the most balanced so far in terms of time spent with each of the members of the Justice League. While it's focus is on Superman, the others do get their own time instead of quick cameos. I recommend it as the first title in the series to listen to.

I highly recommend this series of audio books from Graphic Audio for anyone who is a fan of comic books and the DC Universe. As an audio book, you can't ask for anything more in the experience.

If like me you have heard the other amazing Graphic Audio Dramatisations, you will be aware of the extrodinary production value of these classic stories. Unfortunatley it is wasted on this CD, the story is extremely poor for thos format. Not worth the effort for the cast or crew. But i will continue buying all new DC Graphic Audio Dramatisations.
