ECCC 2019: A Hero’s Quest With Heart In All-Ages Fantasy Comic ‘Canto’ From IDW
by Olly MacNamee
Created by writer David M. Booher and artist Drew Zucker and featuring the talents of colorist Vittorio Astone and letterer Deron Bennett, IDW will be publishing new all-ages fantasy 6 issue mini-series called Canto.
Enslaved for generations, Canto’s people once had hearts. Now they have clocks. When slavers damage a little tin girl’s clock beyond repair, Canto must brave the darkest corners of his hostile world to bring back her heart. Can he overcome the dangers that await to save the one he loves?
David M. Booher had this to say about this new book and its titular character:
We set out to create a character in Canto who finds hope where there seems to be none. Drew, Vittorio, and Deron have done a spectacular job bringing this world to life with Canto as its light. We couldn’t be happier to team up with IDW and have readers join us on his adventure.
Drew Zucker added that, “It has been amazing to see a sketch that was done just for fun evolve into this amazing story and universe about finding hope in the bleakest of worlds. I can safely say there is something here for everyone.”
So, a hero’s quest on the road looking for the greatest prize of all: a heart, coming soon from IDW.
