Once And Future #1 Gets a Second Printing – and a New War of Words…

The war of words between Boom Studios and Image Comics over bragging rights to the relative performances of ongoing series Die by Kieron Gillen and Stephanie Hans, and limited series Once And Future by Kieron Gillen and Dan Mora.

Om Thursday, Image Comics announced that Die #6 would be getting a second printing ahead of going on sale, the same day that Boom Studios announced that Once And Future had sold out ahead of going on sale. And now Boom has followed through with a second printing announcement of Once And Future #1.

It will be in stores on August 28th. The same day as Die #6 gets a second printing. This is no coincidence. The war continues…

ONCE & FUTURE #1 (OF 6)
(W) Kieron Gillen (A/CA) Dan Mora
* 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 escapes her retirement home and pulls her unsuspecting grandson Duncan, a museum curator, into a world of magic and mysticism to defeat a legendary threat.
* Bestselling writer Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine, Star Wars) and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Klaus) explore the mysteries of the past, the complicated truths of our history and the power of family to save the day – especially if that family has secret bunkers of ancient weapons and decades of experience hunting the greatest monsters in Britain ‘s history!
