What is Archaia’s connection to STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS?
Zachary Quinto! Quinto, who plays Spock in the film, is one of the founders of Before the Door Productions, a production company we worked with to produce two awesome graphic novels: Lucid and Mr. Murder Is Dead!
MR. MURDER IS DEAD
Written by Victor Quinaz
Illustrated by Brent Schoonover
Murder… Intrigue… 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 and pulp, while at the same time examining the real-life ramifications of our characters’ choices.
Mr. Murder is Dead is a “who didn’t do it” set in the fading world of Golden Age comic strips. A criminal’s lament to all things past, present and meaningless.
