Canto, the little tin hero who was the talk of 2019, returns in May with the one-shot special, Canto and the Clockwork Fairies. Written by David M. Booher and illustrated by Drew Zucker, this comic story sends Canto and his Malorex deeper into their magical world — literally — to face a sinister mechanical witch who has captured a gentle race of fairies. Can Canto liberate these sweet creatures before he’s taken captive himself?
“Drew and I are thrilled to bring Canto back in 2020 with Clockwork Fairies,” says Booher. “When we came up with the first seeds of the idea for Canto, we knew that his world was expansive. Now we have the chance to share a side story exploring one of the many mysterious corners of this fantastic land. We’re so grateful to the readers who took the journey with Canto in 2019 and we can’t wait for readers to see what we have planned for this year.”
“What David and I started in the first volume of Canto was only the beginning,” says Zucker. “We spent a lot of time hinting at Canto’s world in the background, but what’s really exciting about Clockwork Fairies is having a chance to explore not only more of the physical world, but the characters that inhabit it. It’s exciting for us as creators to discover these characters the same way that the hero does.”
Canto and the Clockwork Fairies will be available with Cover A by Drew Zucker, plus two Retailer Incentive variant editions, by Nick Robles (Euthanauts) and Mateus Santolouco (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder in Hell) respectively.
