Captain Future #11 Audiobook
The Comet King
by Edmond Hamilton
Read by Milton Bagby
 
Trapped in the depths of Halley’s Comet, the Futuremen battle fourth-dimensional monsters in a titanic struggle to save the system’s solar energy!
 
Captain Future learned much of what he knew from perhaps the oddest surrogate father in fiction - The Brain. Simon Wright, a brilliant scientist and companion to Curtis Newton’s father, became so riddled with age and sickness that the only option to continue his life meant literally living as a brain in a specially designed box. When Captain Future’s parents were killed, Wright not only serves as Captain Future’s mentor, but also as the leader of the trio of Futuremen who join Captain Future on his wild escapades.
 
Grag is most definitely the brawn of the Futuremen. A robot constructed by the Brain and Captain Future’s father, Grag stands over seven feet tall and may be the strongest creation in the solar system. Constructed of ‘inert’ metal, Grag is almost indestructible and powered by atomic energy deep in his chest. Grag’s greatest desire is to be considered human, a point that Otho tends to agitate him over again and again, leading to some of the funniest moments in the stories.
 
Truly one of a kind, Otho is a unique android created by Captain Future’s father and the Brain. The synthetic man does not naturally resemble an Earthman, but Otho is well known for his mastery of disguise, a skill that has been useful for Captain Future on many occasions. Otho also is faster and more nimble than nearly any other being alive and he is responsible for teaching Captain Future much of what he knows of speed and agility. Otho also enjoys the danger of each mission they undertake, almost as much as he likes to antagonize the humorless Grag about not being human.
 
Rocket into science fiction adventure and discover new worlds. Ripped from the pages of the Summer 1942 issue of Captain Future magazine, “The Comet King” is read with wonder and excitement by Milton Bagby.

Milton Bagby is a veteran radio announcer and voiceover specialist who first turned to audiobooks in 2010. Since then, Milton has worked on over a hundred audiobook projects as a narrator or producer. Drawing upon years of stage acting and the occasional bit part in films, Milton uses his experience to create characters that stand out in the ear of the listener.
 
“I am very much aware that a perfect stranger is going to invest eight or ten hours listening to me tell a story. I do my best to give the listener an experience in which the characters in that story come alive and sound real.”
 
When not behind a microphone, Milton is a writer. In addition to the well-received Rick Burkhart crime novels, Milton writes a line of 1950s style pulp stories, and is the author of dozens of magazine articles and two non-fiction books. Milton and his wife live in Nashville.
