Modernizing Arthurian legend, Once and Future, announced by BOOM! Studios, from creators Kieron Gillen and Dan Mora, will bring to life both supernatural and mythological creatures.

The six-issue miniseries will follow a former monster hunter, recently unretired, alongside her grandson, who is a museum curator, as they set out to take down a resurrected villain, pulled straight from Arthurian mythology.

“I’ve been chewing over how the classic explorer adventure serial could operate in the 21st century for a while,” Gillen said. “Transplanting the genre to space was one conclusion. Once and Future is another, taking a genre whose core has barely changed since the 19th century, and updating it for the now.”
