KIERON GILLEN will be signing ONCE & FUTURE Vol. 1 at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 25th March 6 – 7pm!

The King is Undead. Long live the King. When a group of Nationalists use an ancient artefact 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.
