    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Apr 10, 2020

    The final pages of Once & Future #7 redefine the comic. You might have thought you knew where it was going next, but writer Kieron Gillen pulls a wild twist that completely changes the game. Once & Future was already a solid action horror title. This chapter greatly expands its size and scope and I'm eager to see how this all plays out. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Mar 24, 2020

    The biggest compliment I can give Once and Future #7 is that in the midst of all the terror and uncertainty in the world right now, it was the best escapism Ive had since this all began. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 26, 2020

    Once And Future #7 continues the story, catching readers up with what happened in the interim in the most efficient way possible. In the first six issues, Gillen had to introduce the world of the book. Here, he trusts that readers know enough to give them the barest exposition before setting the story loose. Dan Mora and Tamra Bonvillain knock it out of the art again, making sure that this book is still one of the best looking ones on the stands. With the surprising resurrection at the end, it will be fun to see where the book goes next. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 25, 2020

    Dan Mora's art is sublime. Everything from the richly detailed backgrounds to the wonderfully expressive characters is great to look at and the way the art progresses the story is perfect. The action is great and Mora mixes in horror elements beautifully throughout. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicolas Duncan Apr 7, 2020

    Dark and gruesome; thats where the talent of Dan Mora and Tamra Bonvillain visual rhythm enhances Gillens smooth pacing. Mora capitalizes on his artistic strengths as he demonstrates with small details and differences on each character with such intense emotions. More and the coloring by Bonvillain nailed their talent in each panel from the first page to the last. My absolute favorite is how the art and colors splatters as the freshly risen Beowulf makes a forceful statement that makes me melt! Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Mar 25, 2020

    Overall, the events of Once & Future #7 will make you believe that the right call was made to turn this book into an ongoing. Once & Future is a book that no one else is offering in this genre. What is magic when everything you knew about it that was pure, in reality is anything but? Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Apr 8, 2020

    The comic doesn't name the mysterious figure working the shadows causing more chaos in the world. Is this a familiar face from Arthurian legend, or an unexpected addition like Beowulf? For that, we'll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, I'm glad to see Duncan's journey is far from complete and there are more stories to be told. Read Full Review
