    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Dec 29, 2021

    Once & Future #23 is a visual feast that harmonizes with a gripping confrontation to present a wonderful tale about the generational pain of stories. The creative team feels like a band playing bangers after banger, working in tandem to get the blood pumping before the next big set. Even in a quieter issue with less action and more character work, the team gives it their all and reminds the reader why Once & Futureis one of the best books on the spinner rack. Read Full Review

    The issue is a rarity in that, while still well done, is one you could skip without missing much of a beat. Other threads include Merlin stressing and yet another story being brought into the mix when a parlay with the fairies leads to three magic beans and a beanstalk. Read Full Review
