Staff Reviews


With Once & Future, Kieron Gillen returns to one of his favorite themes: How do stories shape reality? Framed with Dan Mora’s bold, dark art, Gillen takes up the Arthurian cycle, ancient tales of family drama, nationalism, and magic, and slips under their patina of heroism and honor by creating a modern-day adventure of family drama, nationalism, and magic. A new series for those who enjoy monster hunting, quests, and turning the Western canon on its head.

— Jocelyn

Description


When a group of Nationalists use an ancient artifact to bring a villain from Arthurian myth back from the dead to gain power, retired monster hunter Bridgette McGuire pulls her unsuspecting grandson Duncan, a museum curator, into a world of magic and mysticism to combat the deadly secrets of England’s past that threaten its very future.

...a fast-paced escapade well worth picking up for genre fans, and it will particularly pique the appetites of those who also nerd out on Arthurian mythos. - Publishers Weekly

When a group of Nationalists use an ancient artifact to bring a villain from Arthurian myth back from the dead, retired monster hunter Bridgette McGuire pulls her unsuspecting grandson Duncan, a museum curator, into a world of magic and mysticism to defeat a legendary threat. Now the two must navigate the complicated history of the McGuire family, all while combating the deadly secrets of England’s past that threaten its very future.

New York Times 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!

Collects Once & Future #1-6.
