Bunn, Colak hunt for an ‘Unholy Grail’ at AfterShock

Comic will tell the story of “the gospel of Arthur’s bloody rise to power and his unholy reign.”

I woke from one of those dreams and scribbled the sentence ‘The demon, who had no name in his own tongue, but would come to be called Merlin by mortals, uncoiled its serpentine body and slithered out of the shadows.’ That was over 20 years ago, but I still have the notebook where I first pondered the concept.”
