Welcome to the world of LUCID, the highly anticipated, action-packed, pop-fantasy, four-issue miniseries that draws inspiration from the spy genre, Arthurian legend and 21st-century folklore! Dark forces are conspiring to prevent humankind from reaching its true potential. Thankfully, as newly appointed “Protector of the Realm,” Agent Matthew Dee uses his skills as a covert spy and Combat Mage to ensure America’s freedom from the grip of evil. In the debut issue: Who is Waylan Gheely, and what forbidden power has he stolen? What ancient evil, banished two millennia ago by Merlin himself, threatens to consume our dimension? What presence lurks in the shadows behind it all? And just who is The Secretary of Secrets? Written by “True Blood” actor Michael McMillian and illustrated by newcomer Anna Wieszczyk, LUCID is Archaia’s first title published in association with Zachary Quinto (“Heroes,” “Star Trek”) and his company, Before the Door.

    In closing I have to say that after I fought back my hangover and focused on Lucid I had a great time with it. It's something you haven't seen before so you should at least check it out. It mightn't be your bag but it might be something you've been waiting for. Read Full Review

    Lucid #1 is a pretty interesting first chapter of a pretty high-concept book. It will be interesting to see where this series goes from here. Read Full Review

    While the combination of magic and espionage is strangely palatable--it's not chocolate and peanut butter, closer to tofu and peanut sauce--McMillian and Wieszczyk could stand to ramp it up and go even bigger with the magic stuff and the twisty topoi of the spy genre. Maybe, like in the movies, the sequel will be better than the first one. Read Full Review
