The latest issue of the highly acclaimed and bestselling new original series, ONCE & FUTURE #2 follows retired monster hunter Bridgette McGuire and her unsuspecting grandson Duncan as they prepare for battle against a rising evil that plans to take over their country to bring it back to its former glory.
There’s no turning back now as Bridgette drags Duncan deeper and deeper into the heart of British mythology and folklore to search for a way to stop a rising group of Nationalists from bringing an ancient and terrible power to life. Duncan’s just battled an absolutely impossible creature from legend and been shot—by his Gran, no less!—so he feels he’s due a few explanations, starting with how his nice, perfectly normal Gran knows so much about monsters and how to deal with them?! And what else has his family been hiding from him?
