Legendary Sell Out
BOOM! Studios announced yesterday that Once & Future #1, the extra-sized issue kicking off an all-new series from New York Times bestselling writer Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine, Star Wars), Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Klaus), and acclaimed colorist Tamra Bonvillain (Doom Patrol), has sold out at the distributor level before its on-sale date of 14 August 2019.
In order to meet the overwhelming demand from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios is fast-tracking the release of Once & Future #1 Second Printing Variant, featuring an all-new cover by series artist Dan Mora, so it can arrive in comic shops on 28 August 2019.
The most anticipated original series launch of 2019, ONCE & FUTURE introduces readers to ex-monster hunter Bridgette McGuire, who must pull her unsuspecting grandson Duncan, into a world of magic and mysticism to defeat a legendary threat when a group of Nationalists use an ancient artifact to bring a villain from Arthurian myth back from the dead. Now Bridgette and Duncan must navigate the complicated history of the McGuire family and combat the deadly secrets of England’s past that threaten its very future.
“ONCE & FUTURE is one of my favourite milestones in BOOM!’s history, both in terms of the incredible work that Kieron, Dan, and Tamra are producing, as well as the level of support we’ve received from the retail community,” said Matt Gagnon, Editor-in-Chief, BOOM! Studios. “We’re blown away by the response to the series already and can’t wait for this story to actually get into the hands of readers worldwide!”
