At ComicCon 2009, Zachary was interviewed by CBR TV about the upcoming Archaia comic book projects, MR MURDER IS DEAD and LUCID. Watch for the Mabes/Sarmy shoutout. This interview was done right after the HEROES panel, and right before the Archaia/BTD panel.
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.
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.
