NYCC 2021: Canto #1 Gets an Exclusive Reprint
Before the movie announcement with Will Smith’s Westbrook Studios, before the Clockwork Fairies and the Curse of the Shrouded Man, Canto began as a tiny knight in search of a heart. Now, the dynamic creative duo of writer David M. Booher and artist Drew Zucker have announced a partnership with Whatnot for a special New York Comic Con exclusive 4th printing of Canto #1 from IDW Publishing to celebrate just how far the tiny clockwork knight has come.
In Canto #1, 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?
Seeking to make a positive community driven marketplace, this is Whatnot’s first partnership for a comic exclusive. Originally launched in June 2019, this exclusive 4th printing of Canto #1 is a great homage to the issue that started it all. Three variant covers will be available based on the original first printing cover. Cover A and cover B (a limited variant without title dress) have new colors by Canto colorist Vittorio Astone. Cover C is a limited black and white variant. The exclusives will only be available at NYCC 2021 at the Whatnot booth, as well as on the Whatnot app during the convention while supplies last.
Both David M. Booher and Drew Zucker will be in attendance at New York Comic Con, Oct. 7-10, with exclusive signings at the Whatnot booth #2057, Friday 12:30pm-2:30pm, Saturday 12-2pm, and Sunday 2-4pm.
