"To be alive is to be at odds with the world.
Man against nature. Man against man.
The instinct to survive is what has made us who we are."
In the year 2031 mankind’s survival instinct is put to the test when a civil war in China spirals into global conflict. Nations are destroyed. Millions are killed. And for many, like US Air Force pilot Alec Killian, survival will mean shedding some of his humanity in exchange for biotech and machine. Is this the ultimate corruption of nature, or the birth pains of a new chapter in mankind’s evolution?
This is the basis for one of the most acclaimed graphic novel series in recent years: Titanium Rain, created and produced by 01 Publishing and published by Archaia Entertainment. Now Titanium Rain makes the jump from the printed page to full-cast audio movie adapted for audio by co-creator Josh Finney and directed by William Dufris.
Currently published by Archaia Entertainment, Titanium Rain is a sci-fi war epic set in the year 2031 where a civil war in China has escalated into a global conflict that has decimated entire nations and millions of innocent lives. And for many, like US Air Force pilot Alec Killian, survival in this new age means that man and machine must exist as one. In the spirit of films such as Ghost in the Shell and Blackhawk Down, Titanium Rain follows Killian’s journey through mankind’s worst, only to discover its best.
MICHAEL COLBERT (comics/screenwriter, creator of 01Publishing’s Crazy Mary): “If you like your stories smart, intense, well written with crisp dialogue and a hard core concept that comes across smooth this is the story for you. Science fiction/cyberpunk/war story that elevates the genres it’s working in. The graphic novel is amazing and the audio drama replaces all the visual intensity of the book with an aural experience worth the price of admission. You feel the bullets slamming into the jets, the pull of G forces on your chest and a living breathing world inside your ears.”
PATRICK McEVOY (comic artist, Starkweather: Immortal) “As a fan of good science fiction AND audio plays, I’ll say that this one hits on both counts! Based on the excellent graphic novel of the same name, the Titanium Rain audio drama is an outstanding use of the medium. Excellent acting, writing, sound design and music throughout make this a truly gripping and entertaining experience.”
