Clockwork Conquest: Preview Canto #1 From Booher, Zucker And IDW
by Olly MacNamee
You may find yourselves deceived by the cute little critter on the cover of new IDW fantasy series Canto from David M Booher, Drew Tucker, Vittorio Astone and Deron Bennett, but the story that unfolds in this preview is tinged with some sadness as we learn Canto and his whole community have been taken as slaves, with their hearts replaced by clockwork and their very identities stripped from them! It’s a grim start to what promises to be a hero’s quest for the hearts of his people and the heart of the land. Here’s your preview of the first issue out this week from IDW.
Canto’s adventure begins! 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 his strange and fantastic world to bring back her heart. Can he overcome the dangers that await to save the one he loves?
