For the first officially sanctioned Alien Day in 2016, 20th Century Fox, Audible and Dirk Maggs surprised us with an audio drama adaptation of Tim Lebbon and Titan Book’s Alien: Out of the Shadows. Out of the Shadows was the first of a relaunched series of Alien novels from Titan and for their first Alien audio dramaAudible and Maggs adapted that first. And it was awesome!
I’ve enjoyed the audio drama format for a while but my favorite franchises never really had a big presence in that world which is something I was often disappointed about. Utilizing a great cast, some fantastic sound effects and a great adaptation of a solid foundation, Dirk Maggs gave me an experience I’d been waiting for for a long time.
