‘Canto & The Clockwork Fairies’ Gets 2nd Printing And SDCC Exclusive Variant

by James Ferguson

It’s been a busy time for Canto the clockwork knight. His recent one-shot, Canto & The Clockwork Fairies has sold out, so publisher IDW Publishing has a second printing on the way. That’s not all! The comic from writer David M. Booher, artist Drew Zucker, colorist Vittorio Astone, and letterer Deron Bennett, is also getting a San Diego Comic-Con International Comic-Con@Home exclusive variant cover from Zucker and Astone.

Writer David M. Booher says:

Despite the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, Drew and I pushed forward with our clockwork knight in the hopes we’d be able to keep telling his story. We couldn’t have imagined that 2020—with all its challenges—would see the release of Canto & the Clockwork Fairies and the sequel to his saga in Canto II: The Hollow Men. The response from shops and readers has been overwhelming. Thank you to everyone for continuing with us on Canto’s journey.

Canto & The Clockwork Fairies takes us back to the world of Arcana as the young knight leads his people in search of somewhere or something new. When he encounters a group of captured fairies, he must free them, but can he do it without getting captured himself?

Artist Drew Zucker added:

This year has obviously been a challenging year not just for comics, but for everyone. Despite everything though, Canto has continued to be a source of support for David and I, and we felt strongly that this was the type of storytelling we wanted to put out into the world. With Canto & the Clockwork Fairies  approaching its release and Canto II: The Hollow Men not far behind, we have been overwhelmed by the fans and retailer support.  There are no words for what this has done for the both of us and we could not be more excited to not only set Canto off on his next adventure, but for everyone to take it with him.

Canto & The Clockwork Fairies is set for release on July 22nd, 2020.
