Spider-Man: Drowned in Thunder

by Christopher L. Bennett
Aug 26, 2013
5 Hours
Ages 13+
J. Jonah Jameson, publisher of the Daily Bugle, has denounced Spider-Man from the beginning, convincing New Yorkers to see him as a criminal and a menace. But when a robot attack on Manhattan injures Peter Parker's students and Jameson blames Spider-Man, their feud takes on a new, personal dimension.

As the embittered webslinger faces further robot attacks, each deadlier than the last, his spider-sense warns that Jameson himself is behind them, possibly colluding with Electro, Alistaire Smythe, or another of Spider-Man's mortal foes. Convinced that his worst critic has become a mortal enemy, Spider-Man declares war on Jameson -- a war the publisher is eager to wage. But in their relentless pursuit of victory, they both risk losing everything that matters to them -- and may both fall victim to the cataclysmic secret behind the robots.

Spider-Fun by Trit (Posted on 12/2/2018)
First experience with GraphicAudio and will definitely be coming back. Great audio production, great voice acting and an engaging story. Good on ya, Spidey!
Amazing! by Robert (Posted on 11/10/2018)
I must admit, I have tried audio books previously, and it was a hit or miss experience. But I decided to take a chance and purchase several books from this site, and this was my first listen. That being said, I totally enjoyed this book. I thought it was very entertaining, and loved the voice talents of all the characters. I'm a lifelong spider-man fan, and this audio tale lived up to my expectations. It also was a great way to pass time at the gym. Highly recommended for this look at the relationship between JJJ and Spidey!
Web swinging to excellent heights! by William (Posted on 10/13/2018)
I really enjoyed this story and exploring more why J Jonah Jameson doesn’t like Spider-man. The production is obviously solid and the sound effects and such are great. I really liked how I could envision what Spider-man was doing in the action scenes and how he was dealing with the heavy circumstances he went through. I don’t care for the main villain, but I liked everyone else in the story. If you love Spider-man, you’ll enjoy this.
Goes beneath the surface of the Spidey/Jameson relationship by ZJ (Posted on 8/17/2018)
Before listening to this production, my only experiences with Spider-Man in the audio drama format were a lackluster adaptation of The Lizard Sanction and an origin story audio drama that Dirk Maggs did for the BBC. As renown as Dirk Maggs is for his work in audio drama, I like GA’s work better, at least where comic book stories are concerned. Maggs’s adaptations tend to be a bit too cartoony for my taste, some might argue that they catch the tone and essence of the medium well because of that cartooniness, but it detracts from my overall enjoyment of and audio drama, so I prefer GA’s work on comic book titles. GA’s approach here is nicely balanced, not overly cartoony but also not unnecessarily serious.

Drowned in Thunder was the first Marvel adaptation GA did. All told, it’s not a bad story. It goes beneath the surface of the antagonistic relationship between Spidey and Jameson more than a lot of other Spidey stories do and, as all good Spidey stories do, highlights the difficulty of Peter Parker balancing his daily life with his super heroic exploits. There was also enough misdirection about who the big bad of the story is to keep me interested.

I really can’t say enough about how great GA’s casting is on their Marvel titles. Tim Getman is great as Spidey and all the other actors play their roles just as well. Sometimes the acting in audio dramas can come off a bit canned due to the difficulty actors may have with trying to convey the totality of a character through dialogue alone, but that is never the case in GA’s productions.

I’m sure I’m not the only person with their fingers crossed for an Ultimate Spider-Man, Clone Saga, or Venom Saga adaptation. In the meantime though, Drowned in Thunder is a good Spider-Man story adapted excellently by GA.
Spider-Man: Drowned in Thunder by Dave (Posted on 5/13/2018)
Everything about this adaptation is perfect...great adaptation, great acting, great sound effects.

The actor portraying Peter Parker is a perfect fit.

Highly recommended...definitely 5 headphones from me.
Great audio - ok story by zach (Posted on 4/10/2018)
If your familiar with spider-man's rogue's gallery you'll figure out why the villain isn't any of the obvious ones but they eliminate the suspects one by one for the layman. It was kind of disappointing to find out who it was. But the sound and voices we're great and it was interesting to hear a story durring Parker's 2000's run of being a professor and post civil war.
Impeccable Voice Talent by Luke (Posted on 3/18/2018)
The guy playing Spidey on this drama is perfect. Stellar voice acting on this one. The story is fun too. This production is a fun ride from start to finish.
Great by Louis (Posted on 3/9/2018)
This was a little a darker then I expected, but once I got into the story it was awesome!
Spider-man Drowned in Thunder by Theresa (Posted on 2/3/2018)
Was excited from beginning to the end. Was glad that they gave Aunt May so more character in the book.I am very much looking forward to listening to more about Spider-man.
a Spidey fan must-have by Ryan (Posted on 1/17/2018)
There is nothing that I don't love about this title. To avoid a rant, some highlights include:
1. a deep and two-sided dissection of Peter/Spidey and JJJ's relationship (not to mention just plenty of Jonah in general. The perfect find for my fellow Jameson enthusiasts).
2. A lot of great insight into what it's like to be Peter/Spidey (Including an in-depth analyses of what the spidey-sense can do and how it works).
3. An intriguing mystery that'll the spidey die-hards guessing 'til the end
4. Post-High School Peter.
Spider-man by Michael (Posted on 11/14/2017)
This is a great spider-man story! It will not disappoint fans of the hero!
Excellent production by AJ (Posted on 11/11/2017)
Voice acting for all characters is well done. I like that they "muffle" Spidey's voice a little bit when he's wearing the mask.
Action is well-described and easy to envision what is happening.
Music and sound effects add to the story without overpowering.
100% Great by Steven (Posted on 10/26/2017)
The voice actors are sweet they made it exciting and had me hooked till i got to the last sec.
Awesome story!!! by deon (Posted on 9/8/2017)
This is my first Spider-Man solo story and if they stay this solid and focused won't be my last.
Truly Amazing Spider-Man by Paul (Posted on 8/25/2017)
As with most Marvel characters, Spider-Man/Peter Parker, has the interesting distinction of having almost as much difficulty navigating his ordinary hum drum life as facing any high-powered super villain. Of course, we know that's one of the hallmarks of great story telling: make life miserable for the hero and show how he or she fights their way out of it to the victorious conclusion. So, we have another fantastic story fully dramatized in Graphic Audio style. It delivers the goods!
Spider-man by Steven (Posted on 6/20/2017)
Awesome story, the voice actors really are great I loved this story
Great Story by Joshua (Posted on 6/15/2017)

All of the stuff you love about spiderman
Good Story, Great Experience by Rob (Posted on 6/16/2016)
I enjoyed Spider-Man: Drowned in Thunder quite a bit. It's Spidey as Spidey should be. I bought this title instead of Kraven's Last Hunt because of the lighter tone. Sure, Spider-Man is placed in dangerous situations in Drowned in Thunder and serious events happen (e.g., high school students imperiled and even hospitalized) but, for the most part, Spidey is able to quip and battle his way through it and is, inevitably, victorious. Kraven's Last Hunt is a classic and important Spider-Man story but it's very dark and grim and I'm not sure I want to revisit it. When I want a dark superhero tale, I'll pop in one if the Batman titles.

Now a request: I would very much like Graphic Audio productions of some other Spidey novels. Specifically, Adam-Troy Castro's Sinister Six trilogy, Jim Butcher's The Darkest Hours, and, while I wasn't the biggest fan of Diane Duane's Spidey trilogy (The Venom Factor, The Lizard Sanction, and The Octopus Agenda), I'd like to revisit them in this format. So, more Spidey titles, pleeeease, Graphic Audio?
Great Spider-Man Story by Lucas (Posted on 5/22/2016)
Great cast. Each voice really fits my perception of the characters. The story itself is fun enough and has some really good character growth/development. Recommended!
essence of spider by Alexander (Posted on 4/12/2016)
This as a great rendering of the story. Spider-man is either hit or miss....this was definitely a hit.
Great by John (Posted on 3/8/2016)
I like all of these I have listened so far.
Good Stuff by Gary (Posted on 2/25/2016)
Production is always top notch and if you are familiar with GraphicAudio you already know this. The story is tons of fun and a good introduction of Spider-Man into the audio file. The stand alone nature of the story is something I greatly appreciate.
Yes and no by jeremy (Posted on 12/12/2015)
Of course it was good,.. .but they are all are. It wasn't one of my favorites but it was worth the money.
Spider-Man DIT by Nicholas (Posted on 11/29/2015)
I went looking for a solo Spidey book after the great way he was handled in Civil War. This did not disappoint, the way he is voiced it feels like he is jumping right out of the comics and into my mind. Thank you GA.
Overall enjoyable by Christopher (Posted on 11/23/2015)
Well produced, edited, and acted, but something about this story just didn't quite do it for me. Still a good way to fill 5 hours in the car though.
Fun! by FanMan (Posted on 10/25/2015)
This is another excellent Marvel story. This story is takes place before the events of Brand New Day and I enjoyed that. The story was great. This is better than the Amazing Spider-Man movies. LOL
