Duncan and his Gran have an awkward road trip in a first look at “Once and Future” #2
Things were pretty tense when we last left Duncan and his “sweet” Gran in the pages of Once & Future. Duncan, after all, just discovered that monsters, myths, and legends are real, and he kind of had part of his ear shot off.
By Gran, no less. Her hands aren’t as steady as they once were, after all.
We kind of loved the first issue of this new series over here, and it ended on a pretty stellar cliffhanger. BOOM! Studios have provided a first look at the second issue, and even without dialogue you can tell that Duncan and Gran’s little road trip is pretty heavy.
And also they run into some creepy witches or something. Good stuff.
If you haven’t already, go pick up the first issue, and then check out the details below.
Your First Look at Kieron Gillen and Dan Mora’s ONCE & FUTURE #2 From BOOM! Studios
LOS ANGELES, CA (August 22, 2019) – BOOM! Studios revealed a first look at ONCE & FUTURE #2, the latest issue in the critically acclaimed series, following the biggest new original series launch of the year from New York Times bestselling writer Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine, Star Wars) and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Klaus), as retired monster hunter Bridgette McGuire and her unsuspecting grandson Duncan prepare for battle against a rising evil that plans to take over their country to bring it back to its former glory.
There’s no turning back now as Bridgette drags Duncan deeper and deeper into the heart of British mythology and folklore to search for a way to stop a rising group of Nationalists from bringing an ancient and terrible power to life. Duncan’s just battled an absolutely impossible creature from legend and been shot—by his Gran, no less!—so he feels he’s due a few explanations, starting with how his nice, perfectly normal Gran knows so much about monsters and how to deal with them?! And what else has his family been hiding from him?
Once & Future #2 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on September 18.
