CANTO Series Renewed Through 2022

Canto's Clockwork Knight Returns to Tug at your Heartstrings


EUGENE, OR (January 12, 2021) — The critically acclaimed IDW series, Canto, co-created by writer David M. Booher and artist Drew Zucker, has been renewed for three all-new astonishing tales! The clockwork knight’s adventure continues in April 2021 with the three-issue miniseries, Canto & the City of Giants, written by Booher and featuring guest artist Sebastián Piriz (Disaster, Inc.) with incentive covers by Zucker and Martin Simmonds (Department of Truth, Dying Is Easy).


Booher and Zucker reteam with colorist Vittorio Astone and lettering studio Andworld Design for the six-issue Canto III: Lionhearted, slated for mid-2021, and then for the expansive six-issue conclusion of Canto’s quest with Canto IV: A Place Like Home, planned for 2022.

“There’s a special kind of magic with Canto,” says IDW editor David Mariotte. “David, Drew, Sebastián, and the team have crafted a deeply rich world that readers fall more in love with in every new issue. We’re thrilled to continue exploring Canto’s world and join him on the rest of his epic journey.”

“We always envisioned a sprawling quest for Canto, and it’s due entirely to the reader support that we get to see his adventure to its conclusion,” says Booher. “With inspiration from epics like Lord of the Rings and Chronicles of Narnia, we have so many fun surprises in store. But don’t worry, we’ll keep tugging on those heartstrings and reach an ending that will both break and mend readers’ hearts.”

“It’s really amazing to have Canto find such a strong fan base that will allow us to continue his story,” says Zucker. “This is the path that David and I had envisioned very early on, and while we made these plans, it’s never a guarantee that we would get to them. I think I can speak for the entire team though when I say we are beyond excited and energized to not just tell this story, but share it with everyone who has come along for the ride.”

Praised by CBR as “one of the best comics to hit shelves in recent memory”, fans won’t want to miss Canto’s stouthearted return! The team will surely tug at your heartstrings all over again with a bundle of exciting adventures.
