Vagrant Queen has been one of Vault Comics’ top titles and even recently saw an incarnation for Syfy that brought to life the world created by Magdalene Visaggio and Jason Smith. Now fans have another version to sink their teeth into. The publisher and GraphicAudio, A Movie In Your Mind® have announced an expansion in their partnership that includes two Vagrant Queen audiobooks, adapted directly from the graphic novels. The finished product features a full cast of actors, immersive sound effects, and cinematic music.
Visaggio said in a statement, “It’s always so thrilling for something you created to come to life. I’ve loved audio dramas since I first heard Leonard Nimoy and John de Lancie’s ‘Alien Voices’ in middle school, so it’s been a joy to get that exciting radio show treatment.”
Vagrant Queen follows former child queen, Elida, who was driven from her throne at age ten and forced to wander the galaxy, evading the revolutionary forces that wanted her dead. When an old frenemy claims to know the whereabouts of Elida’s long-lost mother, she is forced to return to her former kingdom and stage a rescue. The comic book series co-created by Visaggio and artist Smith featured colors by Harry Saxon, letters by Zakk Saam, and design by Tim Daniel.
The first audiobook titled Vagrant Queen and the Bezoar King is set to release on February 12 while the second, Vagrant Queen and a Planet Called Doom, will be released on April 21. Both series are produced by Richard Rohan, Duane Beeman, and Matt Webb, and executive produced by Anji Cornette, Vice President at GraphicAudio. Vagrant Queen and the Bezoar King was adapted and directed by Nanette Savard and sound designed by Casey Green and Justin Wortz.
Cornette explained, “Being both fans of the comic book and the tv show, we are thrilled to be working with Vault Comics and authors Magdalene Visaggio and Jason Smith to give Vagrant Queen our GraphicAudio a Movie in Your Mind audiobook treatment.”
