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.
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.
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. firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
