Fans of Kieron Gillen’s work on Doctor Aphra, The Wicked and the Divine and Die don’t have long to wait for their next fix. In advance of this week’s Comic-Con International, BOOM! Studios released a preview and a trailer for his six-issue miniseries “Once and Future,” with artist Dan Mora and colorist Tamra Bonvillain.
“I’ve just finished an issue of this before writing this newsletter, and I’m enjoying writing Bridgette and Duncan enormously,” Gillen said in his email newsletter this week. “It’s definitely filled the Doctor Aphra shape in my heart, in terms of doing blackly funny adventure fiction. In this case, with a lot of horror notes.”
Check out the trailer and some preview pages below.
“Once and Future is an epic story of action and adventure that’s full of monsters, romance, an extremely badass grandma, and an examination of Arthurian legends through the creative lens of Kieron Gillen and Dan Mora.” said Matt Gagnon, Editor-in-Chief of BOOM!. “Both creators are at the top of their game and it’s been a thrill to watch them build a bold, sweeping new world that’s brimming with mythology.”
The miniseries debuts in August.
