Hotly Anticipated New Series Debuts a Fifth Printing with Brand New Cover Artist in September 2019
BOOM! Studios announced today that ONCE & FUTURE #1, the most anticipated original series launch of the year from New York Times bestselling writer Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine, Star Wars), Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Klaus), and acclaimed colorist Tamra Bonvillain (Doom Patrol), has already sold out of its fourth printing at the distributor level.
Due to the historic levels of demand from retailers and fans alike, BOOM! Studios has fast-tracked the ONCE & FUTURE #1 FIFTH PRINTING VARIANT, featuring an all-new cover by an acclaimed artist Khary Randolph (Excellence), arriving in stores on September 18, 2019.
The most anticipated original series launch of the year, ONCE & FUTURE #1 introduces readers to ex-monster hunter Bridgette McGuire, who must pull her unsuspecting grandson Duncan, into a world of magic and mysticism to defeat a legendary threat when a group of Nationalists use an ancient artifact to bring a villain from Arthurian myth back from the dead. Now Bridgette and Duncan must navigate the complicated history of the McGuire family and combat the deadly secrets of England’s past that threaten its very future.
“We’re thrilled to see that ONCE & FUTURE #1 has not only created a fervor among our retail partners, but is now flying off store shelves. We want as many new readers to discover this amazing new world that Kieron, Dan and Tamra have created and as quickly as possible.” said Filip Sablik, President of Sales and Marketing, BOOM! Studios. “In order to fast track this new printing to comic shops and despite increasing our print runs with each successive printing, allocations may occur in order if these unprecedented levels of demand continue to outpace our supply.”
