Once and Future #6

What was originally planned to be the final issue of a six-issue mini-series, Once and Future #6 features Duncan stepping into his role of her to save his grandmother and prevent a zombie version of King Arthur from cementing his power.

The "final" issue to the series which will continue next month features Duncan wielding Excalibur to take on Arthur's knights but also relying on words which cut just as deeply to the Swiss-cheese-brained zombie king who can only remember fragments of his past (and isn't all that happy to hear about some of the goings on in Camelot).

The story comes to a definite conclusion with Duncan returning the sword while also teasing what more might be in store of him by the return of a far from satiated questing beast and a glimpse at another famous figure from Arthurian legend. The issue would have provided a nice wrap-up to the story, but I'm happy we'll get to see more of Duncan (perhaps offering the opportunity for Rose to be a bit more involved?). Worth a look.

[BOOM!, $3.99]
