In 2008, longtime collaborators and friends Corey Moosa, Neal Dodson and Zachary Quinto formed Before The Door Pictures, a media production company. Before The Door has an extensive development slate of projects in film, television, web and graphic novels. In 2009, Before The Door and Archaia Entertainment announced a partnership to produce a series of graphic novels. The first title, LUCID, created by actor and longtime BTD friend Michael McMillian (“True Blood”), debuted in 2010 in single-issue form and is now available in a collected-edition hardcover. Together with Moosa and Dodson, Quinto served as an executive editor on LUCID, working with McMillian, artist Anna Wieszczyk and the Archaia staff to help make the book as accessible and entertaining as possible, offering his input and feedback where needed. Quinto was also instrumental in helping LUCID gain recognition within and outside the comic book industry, using his influence and popularity to tout the book at Comic-Con International in San Diego and in interviews with various media outlets, including MTV, G4 and Comic Book Resources.
