BOOM! Studios gives us our first look at ONCE & FUTURE #1, an extra-sized issue kicking off an all-new six-issue series from New York Times bestselling writer Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine, Star Wars), Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Klaus), and acclaimed colorist Tamra Bonvillain (Doom Patrol), introducing retired monster hunter Bridgette McGuire and her unsuspecting grandson Duncan as they prepare for battle against a rising evil that plans to take over the country to bring it back to its former glory.
The discovery of an ancient artifact at an archaeological site sets off a chain of events that puts the world in danger as a ruthless group of Nationalists attempt to raise a villain from Arthurian legend with the hope of gaining power, and fulfilling a long-standing prophecy for England. The only ones who can stop them are Bridgette McGuire, ex-monster hunter, and her grandson Duncan, who is soon swept up into a world of magic and myth as he comes face-to-face with the legends from England’s past and his own complicated family history.
“ONCE & FUTURE is an epic story of action & adventure that’s full of monsters, romance, an extremely badass grandma, and an examination of Arthurian legends through the creative lens of Kieron Gillen & Dan Mora.” said Matt Gagnon, Editor-in-Chief. “Both creators are at the top of their game and it’s been a thrill to watch them build a bold, sweeping new world that’s brimming with mythology.”
ONCE & FUTURE #1, featuring cover art by Dan Mora, will be ON THE SHELF August 14, 2019.
