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-Man by Trout (Posted on 3/5/2014)
If your a Spider-Man fan, getting this is a no brainer. It was a great listen.
great by Ravn (Posted on 2/26/2014)
This was amazing (no pun intended).. well maybe a little bit, this is spiderman after all.
Nearly perfect by Jared (Posted on 2/1/2014)
Once again, the crew at GA are freaking awesome. Drowned in Thunder is an excellent adaptation of a spiderman story that, unfortunately for anyone playing the home game of continuity, doesn't really line up with GA's adaptation of Civil War in regards to a few details, but this is not their fault. Their portrayal of J Jonah Jameson was what REALLY grabbed me though, as I found myself cheering the old newshound as much as the web-slinger.
Really Good by Joseph (Posted on 2/1/2014)
It was really good, I love everything about it, except for the voice of J. Jonah, it was like awesome.

Amazing by Jack (Posted on 1/1/2014)
This graphic audio is amazing as spiderman himself!
outstanding audio experience by Audiofile Magazine (Posted on 12/6/2013)
Spider-Man has faced countless enemies; now he faces a hidden force that strikes from darkness. Can he identify his tormentor and stop him before he destroys all life? The real hero of this GraphicAudio production is the technical engineer who takes Bennet's excellent story and turns it into an outstanding audio experience. The story is performed by a full cast of actors who fully immerse themselves in the roles of Peter Parker, Mary Jane Parker, Aunt May, and consummate New Yorker J. Jonah Jameson. This production is made for Blu-ray Surround Sound, and the sound effects are compelling: Blaring car horns, the thwip of webs, the whoosh of Spidey swinging to the rescue seem to come from all sides. Listeners will close their eyes and enjoy. M.S. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine
Spider-Man Drowned in Thunder: GA by MDOG (Posted on 11/11/2013)
This is one of the best audio drama's that has ever been produced and is by far the best Spider-Man Audio production. The story is terrific, as is the music and acting. Highly recommended. Also this is a Family Friendly story, which is a plus. There are a few offensive words, but they are few and scattered throughout. Violence is limited as well and there is no sexual content. Great addition to the GA catalog.
And that boys and girls is exactly how it should be… by Tim Mass Movement (Posted on 10/30/2013)
It’s intriguing isn’t it? The idea of a super-hero audio drama. An audio drama that has to capture all of the action and excitement of a comic book, a highly visual medium built around painting a series of ever evolving and unfolding sequential pictures for its audience. You’d be forgiven for being a little sceptical, I was, but believe me, five minutes into the story and you’re swinging through the streets of New York with Spidey, soaked to the skin after foiling yet another street level robbery. In ‘Drowned In Thunder’, Peter Parker, aka your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man, and J. Jonah Jameson’s fractious relationship escalates to near breaking point as both men are sucked into a vicious cat and mouse game following a series of increasingly dangerous series of robot attacks on the citizens of New York. As the attacks become more and more frequent and deadly, Spidey and Jonah begin to blame each other; little realising that they’re being manipulated as a part of a far more deadly plot, a plot in which the fate of the world is at stake. Thanks to an incredible cast on top of their game and a surprisingly engaging story ‘Drowned In Thunder’ is an incredibly enjoyable adventure that draws the listener into the world of the wall-crawling web-head, that in terms of content and execution is highly reminiscent of the old radio drama’s of the thirties and forties, which believe me kids, is a good thing. It increases your adrenaline and gets the blood pumping, allowing you to ignore the overly sentimental, moralistic ending which ties up all the emotional loose ends and focus on the fact that once again, Spider-Man (with a little help from his “friends”) emerges triumphant and saves the day. And that boys and girls is exactly how it should be…

Spider Man: Drowned in Thunder by robert (Posted on 9/23/2013)
This is an interesting find for the Spider-Man story. I started reading Spiderman in in 1963. This is a factual story to the Comicbook. Thus I am satisfied. For a fan of Spiderman I recommend this different Media.
Very well done by SHAWN (Posted on 9/22/2013)
As always GA delivers as no other media form can. I was impressed with this story and loved that the same voice actor whonplayed Peter and zspider-man in Civil War returned. It's amazing how A movie in your mind is exactly what GA delivers. The tension and drama build ups are truly indescribable. This is a great addition to any comic fan. Both DC and Marvel are superbly done. I hope this opens the door for more Marvel stories. Keep em coming GA, and I will continue to spread the word of your fine work.
great story by dreAndre (Posted on 9/12/2013)
I am a big spider-man fan and I feel that the actor's and writers got it right with the problems and issues that he goes through being a hero.
Nailed it. by Catdaddy (Posted on 9/6/2013)
They make it look easy.

But GraphicAudio has really nailed this one, striking an easy balance between having fun with the ever wise-cracking webslinger - which Raimi's movies never quite got - and serious exploration of the questions that comics and films rarely have time to ask. (Like, seriously: what's JJJ's problem, anyway?). The sound of the masked Spider-Man, which GA worked out for the excellent Marvel Civil War, clearly delineates Peter from Spidey. And all of these characters' voices feel both lived-in and true to their comic book origins.

This is the Spider-Man you know and love, done right. Full marks. More, please.

Excelsior! by Philip L (Posted on 9/1/2013)
Awesome, as always. ordering just from the write-up. no preview needed!
Amazing! Spectactular! Avenging and other words Smiling Stan would be proud of. by James (Posted on 9/1/2013)
I'm a big comic fan and having become interested in hearing Graphic Audio's takes on my favourite super heroes I elected to get one release from each line, Enemies and Allies for DC and since I'm such a huge Spidey fan, Drowned in Thunder here. I haven't regretted picking either as they're both fantastic.

First off the actors are all well picked, especially for Peter Parker, MJ and J Jonah Jameson. In terms of continuity the story is set at the time that J Michael Straczynski was writing the comic, which is good because he was prepared to do some interesting things with Spidey like have him become a teacher instead of a photographer or let Aunt May know he's Spider-Man. I really liked this time as it showed Peter maturing from his intital days, something the modern comic writers seem to have foregone. So the writer and adapters have captured that era really well, which pleases me as I do miss the web head's marriage to MJ.

The story sees Peter investigating a bunch of dangerous robots, controlled by the villainous Electro, who is a good choice for a villain given how he'll be in the next Spider-Man movie, but things quicly get deeper and more involved from there. There's also plenty of references to past events but casual audiences will never feel left behind as they're all explained for those without fifty plus years of Spidey lore in their heads. I especially loved the rain-soaked opening and Spidey's battle with Electro, the effects and music really do create the 'movie in your mind' sense GA seems to be going for.

In all this is a perfect buy for any Spider-Man fan! I know this book was part of a set of Marvel books done some years ago and I had read one with the Black Cat so I hope that gets adapted too, as well as the books which featured the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Wolverine and the like. I also hope that Marvel does some more adaptions of classic storylines like Civil War in book form for GA to adapt - Spider Island or Thor: The God Butcher would be awesome.
Spider-Man by Lee (Posted on 8/31/2013)
I just finished Drowned in Thunder. As usual, GA produced a superb production! The character development is spot on, and the story sucks you in like a whirlpool! It is a great story on how the human heart is stronger than technology; and the insights on what makes Peter & J. Jonah tick. Also, why Spider-Man needs J. Jonah to serve as his Jiminy Cricket, to keep him from falling off the tight-rope he walks everyday.
