How we consume content continues to evolve as Marvel Comics has partnered with Serial Box, as the serialized audiobook Thor: Metal Gods hits the digital airwaves on December 12 from the talented writing staff of screenwriter Aaron Stewart-Ahn (Mandy), Brian Keene (The Horror Show with Brian Keene), Jay Edidin (Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men), and Yoon Ha Lee (Ninefox Gambit).
The preview of the series is epic, and you need to listen to it to truly understand the scale of the project (take a listen below). Daniel Gillies’ narration will give you chills (sidenote – Gillies was John Jameson in Sam Rami’s Spider-Man 2).
About the series:
Propelling the saga forward are a fierce Korean demi-goddess, Horangi, and Captain Zia, a charismatic, gender-ambiguous space pirate who shares history with Loki.
Thor and Loki embark on a cosmic odyssey to stop the return of an ancient evil.
A space adventure on an epic scale, Metal Gods propels Thor and Loki on a quest to recover a dangerous alien artifact. Together with a Korean tiger-goddess, a charismatic, gender-fluid space pirate, and Frost Giant mercenaries, the sons of Odin must each confront their pasts and face the truth behind the destruction of a planet that Thor once tried to help. Tinged with humor, celestial horror, complex relationships, space battles, barroom brawls, and blasts of sheer fun.
“The story of Thor is staggeringly epic—from Asgardian myth to intergalactic quests, to the (sometimes surprising, often hilarious) depth of his relationships—he’s got it all,” says Hayley Wagreich, Head of Content at Serial Box. “But what makes this story truly exciting to us as we kick off our collaboration with Marvel is how grounded his story is in real issues of identity, humanity, and what it means to be a hero. We can’t wait to bring Metal Gods to Thor fans across the globe.”
Thor: Metal Gods is the first Marvel e-book series to launch on Serial Box, with more to follow in 2020.
