    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jan 22, 2020

    With the conclusion of Once & Future #6, we certainly got the full package on this adventure with Duncan, Gran, and Rose. This chapter was action-packed, it gave us a stoic hero, and it was heartwarming when it mattered most. It was awesome as a whole to get this visual of what a Duncan who finally accepts his role in the larger story looks like. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jan 29, 2020

    Once And Future #6 is a great comic. Gillen, Mora, and Bonvillain turn in an entertaining chapter and set things up for the future. Looking at this issue as the final issue of a miniseries is the wrong way to look at it. Instead, this feels like the last issue of a story arc. Gillen sets up things for the future expertly. This modern retelling of Arthurian myth has many more places to go, and this issue definitely works to keep readers along for the ride. Read Full Review

    A fantastic end to this books first arc, the entire creative team is at its best in this issue, playing on the Arthurian legend, excellent character dynamics, and sheer Englishness that have driven this book from the start. Read Full Review

    Wondrously unreal, great eye candy for the fantasy/supernatural imagination. Great dynamics with a twist to the Arthurian mythology. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Jan 21, 2020

    With a heady blend of snappy, unmistakably British banter and epic fantasy, Once & Future is a series I have no problem recommending. Managing to avoid either taking itself too seriously or devolving into parody, it lands right in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer sweet spot, and I absolutely cant wait to see where Gillen, More and Bonvillain take us in the upcoming second arc.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 29, 2020

    The story comes to a definite conclusion with Duncan returning the sword while also teasing what more might be in store of him by the return of a far from satiated questing beast and a glimpse at another famous figure from Arthurian legend. The issue would have provided a nice wrap-up to the story, but I'm happy we'll get to see more of Duncan (perhaps offering the opportunity for Rose to be a bit more involved?). Worth a look.
