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.

Here is the schedule of debuts for the month of October: 

October 5, 2021

We Have Demons #1 (of 3) written by Scott Snyder with art by co-creator Greg Capullo and Jonathan Glapion with colors by Dave McCaig and letters by Tom Napolitano.

In practically every folklore throughout history, there’s a struggle between angels and demons–beings of goodness and light and monstrous beings of darkness. But what if this struggle, this war for the soul of humanity, wasn’t rooted in the mystical or supernatural, but in science?

Lam was named after the first female angel, “Lamassu.” Lam never really understood her father’s devotion to their small-town Unitarian church. And when he dies under mysterious circumstances, she starts to question everything she thought she knew. 

We Have Demons is full throttle entertainment by two comic book megastars, featuring action, conspiracies, secret organizations, monsters, mayhem, and a climactic war of good and evil with no less than the fate of the world hanging in the balance. 

October 12, 2021 

Clear #1 (of 6) by Scott Snyder with art by co-creator Francis Manapul and letters by Andworld Design.

Welcome to the future, a world where people can connect to the internet neurologically and mediate the real world through the lenses of their eyes, transforming reality. Everything can be skinned to fit a preference from steampunk to old fashioned Hollywood glamour. If you can name it, you can live it. You choose how you see the world and no one else knows what you’re seeing. 

San Francisco, private detective Sam Dunes is working a case when he’s approached by his former police partner, who informs him of his ex-wife’s alleged suicide. But nothing about this adds up. And when he receives a gift in the mail, Dunes finds himself pulled into a wild and twisting mystery that stretches from the city’s deadly underworld to the even deadlier heights of the city’s wealthy and powerful elite. 

October 19, 2021 

Night of the Ghoul #1 (of 6) written by Scott Snyder with art by co-creator Francesco Francavilla and letters by Andworld Design.

It was said to be the greatest horror movie in cinematic history. Shot in 1936, “Night of the Ghoul” by writer/director T.F. Merritt was meant to sit beside “Frankenstein” and “Dracula” as an instant classic… But the legendary film never made it to the silver screen. Just before editing was finished, a mysterious studio fire destroyed the footage and killed the cast and crew during their celebratory wrap-party. Rumors of the doomed film’s greatness persist to this day, but no footage from it was ever recovered…until now. 

Forest Inman is a horror film obsessive who digitizes old films for the famed Aurora movie studio. When he stumbles across a seemingly forgotten canister of footage, his discovery sends him on a dark odyssey to the California desert, where he’s warned by a mysterious old man that the film’s ghoul is far more than a work of fiction. 

Night of The Ghoul is a dazzling work of contemporary horror, intercutting between the present-day narrative and the story of the lost film (drawn by Francavilla in stunning black and white).
