Batman: The Stone King by Robert (Posted on 3/28/2014)
This was the first of a series of Justice League novels published years ago. I was worried when I first picked up the Graphic Audi title about how Batman would sound. However, I have been very pleased with the Batman voice- and even more pleased to hear it used throughout the DC series of GA titles. The GA production is not only faithful to the source material, but enhances the story and makes it easy for the listener to feel like they are there observing the events. An excellent start for anyone looking to break into the GA series.

This was a good story, batman was great in it, I really was on the edge of my chair listening to it.
Batman The Stone King by Tim (Posted on 12/20/2013)
This was my 1st exposure to Graphic Audio and it blew my mind. I have a long commute and listen to one book a week. This was no ordinary book, this was an event. The story, the sound effects, the voices were all perfect. Since then I have managed to obtain about a dozen titles, mostly comic book related and all have exceeded my expectations. Thanks GA.
Stone King Worth a Listen by FlannDaddy (Posted on 10/10/2013)
It's been a while since I listened to this particular drama but I really enjoyed it. The story was well done, as was the sound effects. The acting seemed a little B-List, community theatre-esk but it was still enjoyable. If you are looking for something different and are new to audio dramas, this is a nice place to start. Cheers.
Loved it. by mike mayhall (Posted on 9/18/2013)

Yet another good book and great audio experience.
Great movie in your mind by Brian (Posted on 8/29/2013)
really good
cinematic by Library Journal (Posted on 8/21/2013)
Graphic Audio produces full-cast dramatizations replete with sound effects and musical scores. In this, the first of Grant's two comics-based novels (the second being Last Sons), Batman and the heroes of the Justice League are spurred into action when an ancient pyramid unleashes a torrent of supernatural energies. The reading by AudieĀ® Award winner Richard Rohan, who previously narrated the New York Times best-selling Atkins for Life, resounds with the kind of deep-voiced import usually reserved for action-adventure movie trailers. Though the near-constant jangling sound effects can be a bit much, the overall listening experience is, as the publisher promises, cinematic. Recommended where comics and graphic novels do well.
high-octane production that Graphic Audio has come to be known for yet by Publishers Weekly (Posted on 8/21/2013)
When an ancient pyramid is discovered just outside Gotham City, Batman and the Justice League must battle with the deadly and powerful Stone King, an ancient shaman empowered by the Earth's natural energy. With all but Batman and the Martian Manhunter captured, the two must save the Justice League and the world before the Stone King unleashes all of his power. Though a typical Justice League story, this reimagined audio performance includes some exciting battle scenes and character dynamics, despite the crux of the story resting on Batman. Voices for all the major superheroes are reprised from previous Graphic Audio productions of DC Comics material. Listeners can expect the same high-octane production that Graphic Audio has come to be known for yet, in the end, feel a bit empty without any sense of character development and sophisticated catharsis.
Review by Wayne Noble (Posted on 8/8/2013)
I guess this story is alright. I'm really a fan of the other Batman stories but this one just goes way out there and not being used to that it just seemed crazy. To kill the bad guy that way. Just funny.
Review by Raymond Sands (Posted on 5/23/2013)
I have listened to all the Graphic Audio DC comics series so far released. The latest in the series Batman the stone king is fantastic. The others were ok, and with the exception of JLA Exterminators the others were all out of character from what I remember growing up reading DC comics. Of course I understand that was the point to those other books alternate universes and such.

Batman the Stone King however is a terrific mystery with Batman playing a fantastic role as master detective. Graphic Audio keeps this book going at an excellent pace and makes it hard for you not to want to listen to it all in one sitting. I can not wait for Graphic Audio to release another in the DC series and hope they consider to keep expanding this offering. Thanks Graphic Audio keep up the good work.

Sincerely,

Another excellent offering from Graphic Audio. I must say that your DC comics productions are the highlight of each month for me. I hope this doesn't stop! I enjoyed The Stone King more than I expected and rank this a Graphic Audio classic! I am getting ready to give this one a second listen. Highly recommended!
Review by Joe Montreal (Posted on 5/23/2013)
this was just ok for me. i have been a huge Batman fan forever. I have also been a fan of Alan Grant's writing for a long time. This story just didn't grab me. I think I was expecting something more...
Review by John Newport (Posted on 5/23/2013)
This one is a definite listen to. Not to give anything away, but this one has a nice twist at the end in the final battle. The whole story will grab you and you want to listen to it all in one sitting, as I did.
Review by Christopher Woods (Posted on 5/23/2013)
I like this one a lot. Once again... Excellent choices for the voice of the characters. Good story. This one is also in my top 5 favorites.
Review by Christopher McNally (Posted on 5/23/2013)
This is the first graphic audio product that I've purchased, and I'm hooked. I'm also a big Batman fan, so I really enjoyed this. Great production values, and a good story (admittedly the magic angle is a little different from what I expected).



Any chances of graphic audio production of Dennis O'Neil's novelization of the Knightfall storyline?
Review by Ari Chandler (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Really enjoyed this title.
Review by Jeffery Noesser (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Excellent as always by GA. This is one of the more straight forward stories. This book serves as a much needed repriece from teh mind-bubbling time twisting from some of the others titles. Enjoy!
Review by Joseph Nolan (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Great story that brings the whole JLA team together to fight an ancient threat to Gotham! Great GA adaptation! Recommended!
