After unprecedented demand sent Once & Future #1 into five printings, BOOM! Studios announced on Monday that the mini-series will now be an ongoing story from Kieron Gillen, Dan Mora and Tamra Bonvillain.
“Kieron, Dan, and Tamra have, without a doubt, crafted one of the hit series of 2019 and we’re very excited to say that the adventure has just begun,” said Matt Gagnon, BOOM! Editor-in-Chief, in a statement. “Fans will get even more action, excitement, and intrigue as Once & Future continues to spin ancient myths and legends into brand new epic quests for readers everywhere.”
The series follows ex-monster hunter Bridgette McGuire, who pulls her unsuspecting grandson Duncan into a world of magic and mysticism. The Arthurian tale tackles Nationalism in a politically-relevant story for 2019. Issue #2 hits shelves September 18.
