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.
