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?
“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.”
