Something New From Archaia, Get Hooked on an 'INTERESTING DRUG'!Archaia/Boom! Studios Press Release

May 12,  2014 – Los Angeles, CA – Nostalgia is a powerful force, but what happens when it becomes the hottest drug on the market? In May, Archaia, an award-winning  imprint of BOOM! Studios, shows us the dangers of getting stuck in the past with INTERESTING DRUG,  a new original graphic novel. This sci-fi story from writer Shaun Manning and artist Anna Wieszczyk (LUCID) is a tripped-out psychological thriller full of scrappy anti-heroes and some of the most villainous riffraff of all space and time.

“We’ve all had this thought at least once in our lives: If you could travel back in time and change your past, would you do it?” questioned BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “In INTERESTING DRUG, Shaun and Anna prove just how dangerous that line of thought can be.”

When a man from the future recruits average retail worker Andrew Smith to help him create a drug that will allow him to travel through time, Andrew thinks he’s found the way to erase all his problems. However, the power of nostalgia proves to be the strongest of drugs, creating an epidemic of addiction with Andrew as its unwitting kingpin.
