    But Why Tho? - CJ Sep 18, 2019

    Once and Future #2 builds on the momentum of the first issue by continuing to highlight its brilliant premise and the talent of its creative team. It also reinvents the legend of King Arthur as a dark fantasy. Given where this issue leads off, I expect issue three to be action-packed while delivering more acerbic dialogue and twists on familiar myths. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Sep 18, 2019

    Once & Future brings together the spirt of Indy melded with the moxie of Ash, but so far none of the gross. Playful, with a side or timely, it is plenty entertaining. Also, gun wielding Granny is all kinds of awesome. Read Full Review

    Once & Future #2 is a solid issue, but heavier in psychodynamics would give that WOW factor that it needs. Nonetheless, I am eager for to see whats next! Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Sep 17, 2019

    It is no secret that I love Dan Mora's art, and it continues to shine. And even if I am not fully engaged in the story it is still worth picking up Once & Future just to see Mora do his thing. Pairing with Tamra Bonvillain on colors is the icing on the cake. Read Full Review
