    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Feb 18, 2021

    Once And Future #16 is a fast-paced ride that moves all the pieces on the board where they need to go in an exciting manner. It's a testament to Gillen's skill that he's able to juggle four different plotlines in one issue, and each one feels like it has the exact right amount of time to breath. He twines them all together, building up to a four-way confrontation. Dan Mora continues to impress with his art, showing why he's one of the best artists working today. Once And Future #16 builds anticipation for what comes next in a wonderful fashion. Read Full Review

    It's hard to imagine that Once and Future was originally planned as just a 6 issue series.  Here we are 10 issues later with no signs of slowing down.      Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Feb 22, 2021

    Once & Future #16- This is going to be one epic battle. Three knights battling it out! Once & Future should be accompanied with an English Literature degree and cliff notes. It is a high brow comic that rewards the reader with precise pencils and vivid colors! You would do yourself a favor at starting with issue #1 and pull yourself up to King Arthur and his round table!

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 23, 2021

    As for Rose, she learns a bit about the secret government organization which has been secretly watching her for weeks and showed up just in time to save her from whatever the hell Duncan's mother is calling herself this week. The introduction of the Shadow Secretary helps explain how the British Government handles the odd mystical occurrences the pop-up from time to time (while also dropping more hints about the “accord” which we've heard reference to before as a measure to help keep the peace).
