Bestselling Audible Fiction Series ‘Impact Winter’ Gets Graphic Novel Collection

Impact Winter

Skybound and Image Comics, in collaboration with Anonymous Content and Audible, announced a graphic novel based on the #1 Audible Original of 2022, Impact Winter. The post-apocalyptic prequel from Audible series creator/writer Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim, Carnival Row) will collect Impact Winter #1, Impact Winter: Rook #1, and the upcoming Impact Winter: Evenfall #1 and will be available everywhere books are sold October 15, 2024.  

Darcy, a young and headstrong fighter looking to prove herself. Rook, a wandering centurion needing a second chance. Penelope, a newly awoken vampire seeking revenge. Their stories unfold in the dark corners of legend, where vampires are real and waiting for the opportunity to step from the shadows.  

Collected for the first time ever, these stories will entice new readers and longtime fans of the Audible Original to explore the world of Impact Winter with Travis Beacham and artists Stephen Green (Hellboy & the BPRD), Andrea Milana (Cobra Commander), and Sumeyye Kesgin (Voyagis). 

These epic tales of darkness and light feature many of the characters made beloved in the heart-stopping audio drama, as well as the first appearances of important characters that have not been introduced in the audio series. 

“I am beyond thrilled that we’ve been able to expand the world of Impact Winter with these three stories from Travis and our immensely talented artists: Stephen, Andrea, and Sumeyye,” said editor Amanda LaFranco. “We’ve highlighted unique stories from beloved characters and have been able to go deeper into their psyches and motivations in a way that’s both uniquely exciting to new Impact Winter fans, and long-time listeners of the audio drama. These tales have made me even more intrigued with Darcy, Rook, and Penelope’s journeys in a way I think will resonate with all readers.” 

With two seasons currently released and a third on the way, the audio drama from Audible, Skybound Entertainment, and Anonymous Content was the #1 Audible Plus listen across categories for three weeks following its launch and the #1 Audible fiction bestseller in its week of launch. This action, romance, coming-of-age story delivers an unprecedented sonic experience via binaural action sequences, original music and incomparable sound design, all of which come together to bring to life this post-apocalyptic world in visceral detail. Impact Winter is also available via all major podcast providers, including Apple, where it has ascended as high as #3 on the fiction podcast charts.  

Skybound and Audible have previously announced that the Eisner Award-nominated Image/Skybound comic book series Gasolina created by Skybound’s SVP, Editor-in-Chief Sean Mackiewicz and Niko Walter will be adapted for audio as part of Audible’s upcoming slate, published in English and Spanish and performed by the same bilingual cast in both langugages.  

Impact Winter Trade Paperback will be available at booksellers, along with digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Tuesday, October 15, 2024, and at comic book shops and everywhere comic books are sold on Wednesday, October 16, 2024.
