A standoff between Duncan, Galahad, and Lancelot is all that's preventing the Otherworld and our world from colliding... but only one of them can be the greatest knight and Duncan better hope it's him.

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 25, 2021

    Once And Future #17 is an action-packed banger that ties all of this series's plot threads together in perfect fashion. Gillen keeps everything exciting throughout the whole issue, keeping the pace high while also letting the plot become known. Mora and Bonvillain continue to be one the best penciler/colorist teams in the comics, laying down some amazing visuals. Once And Future looks to be moving towards its inevitable end, and if this issue is any indication, it'll be a great ride. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Calum Petrie Mar 25, 2021

    This issue genuinely left me sad come the final page, as the story was incredibly engrossing while managing to throw in some comic relief. The tension now mounts as the race for the Grail is in motion. I am keeping an eye out very closely for the next issue and this series has now become my latest obsession. Read Full Review
