HEROES: Season 4 - Redemption

HEROES. Season 4. Volume 5: Redemption. 


Premieres on Monday, September 21st on NBC. 

Sylar has more work to do...

Here's a video preview of the new season...

LUCID - an original comic book series

The second project from the partnership between Zachary Quinto's Before The Door Pictures and the publisher, Archaia, will be an original comic book series - LUCID: A Matthew Dee Adventure

"LUCID" was created by Michael McMillian, a writer and actor (HBO's "TRUE BLOOD" and many other projects) and a longtime friend of Zachary, Corey, and Neal from their days together at Carnegie Mellon. 

Here is a link to a great interview with ZQ, CM, and ND about the projects and partnership with Archaia with writer Jesse Schedeen over at IGN. 

And another great interview/article from G-Man over at ComicVine.

This early teaser artwork premiered at Comic-Con on July 25th, 2009.



Our nation's prayers have been answered: The stars have aligned and brought us President Jefferson Monday to lead the world into a new Golden Age. After thousands of years of promise... Camelot has returned.

Unfortunately, evil agents of darkness lurking in shadows and high positions of world power aren't willing to call it a day just yet...

Thankfully, the United States Department of Secrets has employed Matthew Dee to protect us. A descendant of Queen Elizabeth I's court magician, John Dee, Matthew is a covert spy and combat mage, trained in the ancient practice of the Mystery School Network, fighting to ensure humanity's freedom from the grip of ancient dark forces.

LUCID, a 4-issue limited series, is an action-packed fantasy for the 21st century drawing inspiration from James Bond, Arthurian Legend, and modern American mythology. 

And here's a video of Michael McMillian and the Before The Door Team (ZQ, CM, ND) talking about "LUCID" on the Archaia panel at Comic-Con.

MR. MURDER IS DEAD - an original graphic novel

The first project from the partnership between Zachary Quinto's Before The Door Pictures and the publisher, Archaia, will be an original graphic novel. 

"MR. MURDER IS DEAD" was created by Victor Quinaz, a New York-based writer and longtime friend of Zachary, Corey, and Neal from their days together at Carnegie Mellon. 



     Old men doing bad things...

     GOULD KANE is long into his retirement as a top cop. He was once the basis for the world famous comic      

     strip detective THE SPOOK. But when a not-so-nice man, once nicknamed MR. MURDER, is found dead, the 

     events that unfold could lead Gould to a new and perhaps even greater profession in his twilight... as a very 

     bad man.

     MR. MURDER IS DEAD lives in several worlds. It's all at once a throwback to the great staples of noir & 

     pulp, while at the same time examining the real-life ramifications of our characters' choices.

Here's a LINK to an article about the partnership with Archaia from ComicBookResources. 

This early cover artwork (by Chris Burnham) premiered at Comic-Con on July 25th, 2009.

Comic-Con 2009 : Before the Door / Archaia

Zachary and his partners at Before The Door (Corey Moosa, and Neal Dodson) attended Comic-Con this past weekend in San Diego. The main purpose of their visit was to announce a three-book publishing deal with Archaia Comics. More details on those specific projects will be trickling out over the next few days, including artwork.

Below is an interview from Newsarama that details the new venture.

On that front, here are some thoughts from Zachary:

"As a company passionate about telling unique stories, we're thrilled to be doing that on our projects with Archaia. I've been immersed in the comic book world through my work as an actor, and it feels fitting that Corey, Neal and I are diving even further into it as producers. It's my third year in a row at Comic-Con--Sylar, Spock and now Archaia."

And from Corey Moosa: 

"I second Zachary, and add that, as a lifelong comic book fan myself, our writers are telling some awesome tales. We can't wait to share them."


And here's a VIDEO of the first segment of the Comic-Con panel that featured Zachary Quinto, comicbook legend Jeph Loeb (who moderated the panel), Corey Moosa, Neal Dodson, Archaia director of development Stephen Christy, Archaia president PJ Bickett, and our first two writers: Victor Quinaz & Michael McMillian. Thanks to Mabes and the Sarmy for the front row video footage.

The ZQ Community

After a bit over a week of early Beta Testing - a new feature is launching on www.zacharyquinto.com:  a COMMUNITY section.

This is an innovative web experiment, combining social networking features (like friending & profiles) with blog features (like posting & commenting) with twitter-like features (following someone) with fan-club like features (but free...). It's a community built around Zachary Quinto and his projects, photos, videos, work, and also built around YOUR projects, videos, photos, and work. 

This new platform, powered by TypePad, has just completed a long research, programming, and testing phase. We are proud to work with the team at Six Apart. As you begin to use the site, if there are features you would like to see included or things that seem to not work as well as you'd hope - let us know your thoughts. testing@zacharyquinto.com.

The site will grow and change, both based on your input, and also based on new features that are already being explored and developed. We're just getting started.
