    COMICON - Olly MacNamee May 4, 2021

    With the current story-arc coming to a close with ‘Once and Future' #18 the thrills don't come from the final battle itself but from what's being set up next. A truly new dawn for Great Britain, but one that certainly isn't trumpeting in a new Golden Age for the UK that's for sure. Riveting stuff and a great way to keep readers on the edge of their seats until its return this summer. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Apr 29, 2021

    Once And Future #18 changes everything about the series. From here on, the book will be completely different, and thats a very good thing. Gillen plays into the books central metaphor again pretty heavily in this issue, and itll be interesting to see where the book goes from here on in. Hes got years of stories to choose from to bring into play, and where he goes with it will be half the fun of this new world. Mora and Bonvillain are still one of the best art teams working in comics today, and this book hammers that home. Once And Future has an uncertain future ahead for its characters, but for readers, theres certainty- that it will continue to impress. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Justin Harrison Apr 28, 2021

    Once and Future is on a blood-soaked tear through British mythology, and what a tear it is. Bonvillain, Mora and Gillen are having a ball with this comic, and the results of that dance are a pleasure. Read Full Review

    Wherever this series progresses to, I will be patiently waiting for more outstanding artwork and a truly gripping tale of twisted folk lore. Until then, I shall get back to re-reading the entire series, just to admire the artwork and recap on the story as a whole. Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar Apr 27, 2021

    Since the craziness of this story is about to get kicked up a notch thanks to the events of Once & Future #18, Tamra Bonvillain's work is about to reach another level, too. Dan Mora and Kieron Gillen get most of the attention for Once & Future " understandably so " but Bonvillain's colors have been great, especially when jumping between Earth and Otherworld. With what happened in this issue, Bonvillain is in position to run wild. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Cat Wyatt Apr 28, 2021

    Once & Future #18 is the most dramatic issue thus far, with new twists, foes, and character development all around. And don't forget about the brilliant artwork, which in itself is remarkable. This is not an issue to skip. Read Full Review
