BOOM! Studios announced today that Kiero Gillen, Dan Mora and Tamra Bonvillain’s Arthurian legend tale, ONCE & FUTURE, has been promoted to an ongoing series.

BOOM! Studios synopsis:
When a group of Nationalists use an ancient artifact to bring a villain from Arthurian myth back from the dead to gain power, ex-monster hunter Bridgette McGuire pulls her unsuspecting grandson Duncan, a museum curator, into a world of magic and mysticism to defeat a legendary threat. Now the two must navigate the complicated history of the McGuire family and combat the deadly secrets of England’s past that threaten its very future.
