First Look: Once And Future By Gillen And Mora

by Oliver MacNamee

I was fortunate enough to see these interiors – and more – when I was down Portsmouth Comic Con, so it’s great to see some forthcoming pages from Kieron Gillen’s new Arthurian themed epic, Once & Future from Boom! Studios and with Dan Mora onboard as the book’s artist. August can’t come round quick enough now as I love a good Arthurian legend.

Here’s the series’ premise and a first look at some the stunning unlettered pages from the debut issue out August 14th.

Duncan McGuire is having a terrible day and a terrible date when his grandmother’s retirement home calls with an emergency. Little does he know, the emergency is actually the emergence of a villain from Arthurian legend, being summoned back from the dead by a group of Nationalists to serve their cause. And the only person who knows how to stop them is . . . his grandmother, Bridgette McGuire, ex-monster hunter and lifelong badass.
