The Audible original Stan Lee’s Alliances: A Trick of Light was in the works before the comic giant passed away in November. Lee created the story about teens, social media, and super powers with Luke Lieberman and Ryan Silbert. The English version is read on Audible by actress Yara Shahidi while the Japanese version brought in popular voice actress Kana Hanazawa.
The Monogatari and Psycho-Pass voice actress said, “I liked Stan Lee’s work, so I am very glad I was involved in the work in this way.”
The story includes intro recordings by Stan Lee. The project spanned multiple years before coming to the streaming service. Lieberman and Silbert told Slash Film’s Fred Topel that Lee had created more characters and that the series could expand in the future.
Fans who would rather read the story instead of listen will be able to purchase the Alliances: A Trick of Light in book format this fall.
