BOOM! Studios have just announced that, hot on the heels of its first issue being rushed back to print for an incredible FIFTH time, Kieron Gillen, Dan Mora and Tamra Bonvillain’s ONCE & FUTURE is being promoted to an ongoing series.
“Kieron, Dan, and Tamra have, without a doubt, crafted one of the hit series of 2019 and we’re very excited to say that the adventure has just begun,” said Matt Gagnon, Editor-in-Chief, BOOM! Studios. “Fans will get even more action, excitement, and intrigue as ONCE & FUTURE continues to spin ancient myths and legends into brand new epic quests for readers everywhere.”
ONCE & FUTURE #1 introduced readers to ex-monster hunter Bridgette McGuire, who pulls her unsuspecting grandson Duncan, into a world of magic and mysticism to defeat a legendary threat when a group of Nationalists use an ancient artifact to bring a villain from Arthurian myth back from the dead. Now Bridgette and Duncan must navigate the complicated history of the McGuire family and combat the deadly secrets of England’s past that threaten its very future.
We absolutely loved the first issue here at the Big Comic Page, with Ceej point out that “Gillen’s confident structure and snappy dialogue paired with Mora and Bonvillain’s lively, expressive visuals make this a book that you simply cannot afford to miss” in his glowing 4.5/5 review.
