The veil between the Otherworld and the human world is thin, and as the story changes around Duncan and Gran, each foe becomes harder to defeat...and predict. They may be holding the line, but enemies both new and old are closing in fast, and even Gran and Duncan may not be prepared for what's next!

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Oct 14, 2020

    Once And Future #12 wraps up the Beowulf story perfectly. There's really not much else to say about just how good this issue is. Gillen, Mora, and Bonvillain knock it out of the park with every moment, balancing action and exposition, putting a bow on this phase of the story while also setting things up for the future. Once And Future is one of comics' best-kept secrets, and this issue keeps that up.. Read Full Review

    Overall, it was a nice change in tempo. More importantly, we don't know exactly what's in store for Duncan and Gran yet. Gillen and Mora can go in a couple different directions " leaving us waiting on the edge of our seat for Once & Future #13. Read Full Review

    Grendel's mother is out for revenge in 'Once and Future' #12 and only Duncan stands in her way. Meanwhile, Merlin continues to scheme and set players into motion in each of the Holy Grail. A fitting end to this chapter of Kieron Gillen and Dan Mora's fantasy saga. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Oct 22, 2020

    Once & Future #12 – family drama, bloody battles, a grandma welding a chainsaw, and Merlin. If Boom Studios is not on your radar, you need to expand your library search! The art is worth the price of admission, but the storyline….it's not your average “boom, pow, bang!” comic! Read Full Review

    We are going bigger with the legends and myths fueling this whole thing, but hopefully, that means the payoffs will be that much larger as well. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 21, 2020

    Mary's assistance is unexpected, especially by Bridgette, but not unwelcome. There's solid action here while the story continues to shift as Duncan proves himself a hero yet again (giving away Excalibur with ease) as another piece of Zombie Arthur's plan is revealed. Read Full Review
