Preview: The Dark Is Rising In ‘Once And Future’ #9

by Olly MacNamee

Merlin seems to be making his move slowly but surely in this radical take on the legend of King Arthur and his links to a more brutal, nationalistic hero of yore. Now with the added strengths of Beowulf too, can Duncan dare to think he can win  as he and his monster-hunting grandma, Brigette, try to flee for safety in this preview of Once and Future #9 by Kieron Gillen, Dan Mora, Tamra Bonvillain and Ed Dukeshire. Out Wed. 15th July from BOOM! Studios.

“With Merlin-and the magic he wields-back at his side, King Arthur is stronger than ever. Brigette and Duncan continue to fight against Camelot’s dark forces, but when Merlin calls to life another story entirely, will the two heroes save the day? Or will they find themselves becoming the villains they’re sworn to defeat.”
