Once and Future #6 by Kieron Gillen, Dan Mora and Tara Bonvillain sees the culmination of the first arc of this now ongoing fantasy series based on the King Arthur legends of yore. I have been an unashamed fan of this series – as you can tell from my regular Arthurian Annotations column that take a look into the source materials Gillen mines for his story – and so look forward to this finale and what is to come next. Here, then, is your first look at this climactic issue in which Duncan – or should that be Percival – looks like he’s squaring off with the once and future king himself with Excalibur in hand.
With the fate of the world in the balance, Duncan must finally accept his role in the larger story. But has Gran trained him well enough to defeat the undead King of the Britons by himself?
Once and Future #6 is out January 22, 2020 from Boom! Studios
