"ONCE & FUTURE #3, out this Wednesday from Boom! Studios tells a significantly darker and more disturbing tale of King Arthur and his devout followers. In a world full of King Arthur retellings, this one stands out amongst the pack.

Take a look through any collection of books or comics, and the odds are good that you’ll find more than one retelling focused on the legend of King Arthur. With that in mind, note that Once & Future is a completely different take.

ONCE & FUTURE #3 is a world in which letting King Arthur continue his eternal rest is for the good of all man. Because some legends are better left alone. It’s a darker rendition of the tale, but that is why it has become such a fascinating read in such a short period of time.

And okay, throwing an awkward man and his elderly grandmother into the mix certainly helped to shake up any preconceptions we had about this series. Best of all, their interactions allow for the occasional moment of comic relief, giving the readers a chance to breathe before diving back in."
