Vault Comics and GraphicAudio Partner for WASTED SPACE audio book
The WASTED SPACE audio book from GraphicAudio will be released September 30th, 2019
Missoula, MT (9/3/2019): Vault Comics and GraphicAudio® A Movie In Your Mind® are thrilled to announce they have partnered to produce the WASTED SPACE audiobook, adapted directly from the graphic novel and produced with a full cast of actors, immersive sound effects and cinematic music.
WASTED SPACE follows Billy Bane, a prophet who got it all wrong, and the galaxy has been burning ever since. All he wants is to waste away in the darkest corner of space with his best pal Dust, a supercharged Fuq bot. But when a new prophet comes calling, Billy is summoned to save the galaxy he’s at least partially responsible for destroying. Too bad he couldn’t care less.
“WASTED SPACE is a bouncy, twisting ride of a story, blasting through space opera tropes and conventions with a splash of social satire,” said the WASTED SPACE audiobook director, Richard Rohan. “Having the opportunity to render that story in GraphicAudio was almost as much fun as the story itself!”
“It’s been a joy working with GraphicAudio on the WASTED SPACE adaptation–they’ve been so faithful to the material while adding in new and fun story angles,” said WASTED SPACE writer and co-creator, Michael Moreci. “I’ve loved what I’ve heard, and I’m so confident other people will, too. This cinematic space opera brought to life in the best way.”
“GraphicAudio has brought WASTED SPACE to life in a whole new way here that’s just crazy cool,” added WASTED SPACE artist and co-creator Hayden Sherman. “It’s faithful and fun and has me dying to find out what each issue sounds like.”

It is performed by Eric Messner as Billy Bane, Duyen Washington as Molly Sue, Henry Kramer as Dust, Karen Novack as Fury, Chris Genebach as The Creator, Jacob Yeh as Rex, Andy Brownstein as Cutter, Richard Rohan as Legion, with Nick DePinto, Joe Mallon, KenYatta Rogers, Chris Stinson, Kimberly Gilbert, Dani Stoller, Amanda Forstrom, Tony Nam, Bradley Smith, Nanette Savard, Steve Wannall, Zeke Alton, Lawrence Redmond, Holly Vagley, Matthew Pauli, Marni Penning, Peter Holdway, Paul Reisman, Rose Elizabeth Supan, Tim Carlin, and Ken Jackson.
