Feb. 20th, 2020, (Cottage Grove, OR.) — The critically acclaimed fan-favorite, Canto, by David M. Booher and Drew Zucker, makes a valiant return with an all-new one-shot adventure comic, Canto and the Clockwork Fairies! This delightful modern fairytale for all ages bridges the gap for the adventures to come, with retailer incentives including a 1 in 10 variant cover by Nick Robles (The Dreaming) and 1 in 25 by Mateus Santolouco (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)!
Return to Canto’s world and follow the brave clockwork hero as he leads his people out from their home in Arcana to find somewhere--and something--new! When Canto encounters a group of captured fairies, it’s up to him to liberate them, but can he do it without being captured himself?
Praise for Canto
“Dark and magical with a glowing heart of gold. If The Wizard of Oz and Labyrinth gave birth to a hero, it would be Canto.”
—Delilah S. Dawson (Star Wars: Phasma, Marvel Action: Spider-Man)
“Booher and Zucker have built a richly envisioned fantasy world that is equal parts fantastical and scary, like all the best fantasy stuff.” —Nerdist
“The character designs are worthy of something that Jim Henson himself would have come up with. Canto feels like Mouse Guard meets Oliver Twist meets your favorite fantasy story.” —Down and Nerdy Podcast
“...A beautiful blend of Phillip K. Dick and L. Frank Baum, a harrowing android love story thrown back into times of steampunk whimsy. And yet, this has the feel of modern magic, make sure you’re a part of it!”
—Steve Orlando (Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, Batman/Shadow)
“...packed with adventure, irresistibly charming, and so utterly adored by its creative team that their affection for the characters and their world shines through on every single page.” —The Beat, The Best Comics of 2019
