August 2019 cannot come sooner, we have a Once & Future #1 preview by writer Kieron Gillen and artist Dan Mora. You may know these creatives from Wicked + Divine, Star Wars, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, or Klaus. This all-new limited series will introduce retired monster hunter Bridgette McGuire and her unexpected grandson, Duncan, as they prepare for a battle facing a rising evil that intends to take over the country and bring it back to its former glory. If that doesn’t intrigue you, I don’t know what will!

What Is Once & Future #1 Preview About?

Duncan is having a terrible day and a terrible date when his grandmother’s retirement home calls for an emergency. Little does Duncan know, the emergency is the emergence of a villain from an Arthurian legend. It is being summoned back from the dead by a group of Nationalists to serve their cause. The only person who knows how to stop them is: his grandmother. Who would have thunk? Bridgette is a lifelong badass (her words, not ours). As soon as he can say “what,” Duncan is dragged into a life of magic and myth as he comes face-to-face with legends from the past. He also has to deal with his own family history as he and his grandmother fight for their country’s future.
