    ‘Once & Future' #22 ramps up the action even more while offering up a number of differently emotionally charged scenes too.

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Dec 1, 2021

    With 22 almost perfect issues under its belt, Once & Future continues to be one of the best independent books operating on the comic scene. The creative teamwork of Gillen, Mora, Bonvillain, and Dukeshire is one for the history books and will be immortalized in the minds of fans in the same way Shakespeare is for many. The books action is just another one of those aspects that proves the perfect sync that all of the creatives are in working on Once & Future and makes the book to be a continued delight to pick up month after month.

    Mora, Bonvillain, and Gillen continue to be one of the most joyously reliable creative teams in comics. Once & Future's 22nd issue has elements that give me pause, but hot diggity the craft and construction and energy this book has. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 8, 2021

    Once and Future #22 starts off with a bang while also catching up a little with Zombie King Arthur, whose plans aren't going as well as he had hoped, and offering the return of Duncan's mother (but what role is she now playing in the constantly evolving story?). Read Full Review

    It's no secret that I adore Once & Future, and once again there's plenty to love about issue #22, though it does get held back just a bit by its cast. Read Full Review
