Once & Future #1
BOOM! Studios
Story by Kieron Gillen
Art by Dan Mora
When a group of Nationalists use an ancient artifact to bring a villain from Arthurian myth back from the dead to gain power, ex-monster hunter Bridgette McGuire escapes her retirement home and pulls her unsuspecting grandson Duncan, a museum curator, into a world of magic and mysticism to defeat a legendary threat.

Bestselling writer Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine, Star Wars) and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Klaus) explore the mysteries of the past, the complicated truths of our history and the power of family to save the day – especially if that family has secret bunkers of ancient weapons and decades of experience hunting the greatest monsters in Britain’s history!

Read a Q&A with the writer and artist!

Why It’s Cool:“What if your Grandma used to hunt supernatural entities? And now she has to come out of retirement because some bad guys are trying to wake up the King Arthur of legend who’s return may or may not cause a bunch of even worse stuff to happen? This is the basic premise of Once & Future: Arthurian myth set against a 2019 background. And it rocks. Gillen displays his usual wit and deft characterizations, while Mora brings his clean line and eye for detail. Oh, and did I mention The Questing Beast shows up in the first issue? If you’ve liked any of Gillen’s other work, from Wicked & Divine to Dr. Aphra, you won’t want to miss this one!”
-Edward Uvanni, Comics Omnivore Director
