‘Paradox’ kick-starts Arcana slate

Arcana Studios is bringing their comic series Paradox, a fantasy crime thriller set in a parallel universe, to the big screen.

Christos Gage, who wrote the three-issue limited series, wrote the script for the adaptation with Ruth Fletcher Gage.

The Gages’ other credits include Sony’s The Breed and Law and Order: SVU. Christos Gage has also written for DC on Deadshot, and Union Jack and Avengers: The Initiative for Marvel.

Here’s the setup for Paradox: Paradox introduces homicide detective Sean Nault, a cop on a parallel Earth whose technology is powered exclusively by magic. Sean investigates a baffling series of murders committed by a means he’s never seen before: the power of science. With the aid of Lenoir – a member of the ridiculed subculture of “pragmatists” who believe science is more than the stuff of myths and children’s stories – and the 130 year old sorcerer Winston Churchill, Sean uncovers an apocalyptic plot that will lead him to another dimension – ours – and the realization that, unless he prevents it, both earths could well be destroyed.
