Moonstone isn’t one of the biggest publishers of books and comics, but it is responsible for continuing the adventures of some pretty high profile characters – The Green Hornet, Buckaroo Banzai, Carl Kolchak, Zorro, Doc Savage, The Phantom and many more.

Now, Moonstone is partnering with Radio Archives – the leader in restoring vintage radio shows (Strange Adventures, Inner Sanctum, Space Patrol and more) – to create Moonstone Audiobooks, bringing titles from Moonstone’s extensive catalog to life.
