New Release Pick of the Week

Once and Future #1

ONCE & FUTURE #1 (OF 6)

BOOM! Studios

(W) Kieron Gillen (A/CA) Dan Mora

When a group of Nationalists use an ancient artifact to bring a villain from Arthurian myth back from the dead to gain power, ex-monster hunter Bridgette McGuire escapes her retirement home and pulls her unsuspecting grandson Duncan, a museum curator, into a world of magic and mysticism to defeat a legendary threat.

Bestselling writer Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine, Star Wars) and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Klaus) explore the mysteries of the past, the complicated truths of our history and the power of family to save the day – especially if that family has secret bunkers of ancient weapons and decades of experience hunting the greatest monsters in Britain ‘s history!

No new comics review today 😪 as comics are running late for the entirety of Southern Texas.

We are expecting the delivery early Wednesday and will have them available as soon as possible! (Sadly we’ve had quite a bit of experience with this.)

Stay tuned for the latest on either fb and Twitter.
