IDW Publishing has announced Canto, a surreal six-issue journey beginning in June. Created by writer David M. Booher and artist Drew Zucker and featuring the talents of colorist Vittorio Astone and letterer Deron Bennett, this all-ages comic book miniseries explores a strange and fantastic world in search of the greatest prize of all: a heart!
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 the darkest corners of his hostile world to bring back her heart. Can he overcome the dangers that await to save the one he loves?
Canto #1 features a regular cover by Zucker and a special variant by Nick Robles.
Vault Comics has issued an important FCBD alert that their Free Comic Book Day 2018 offering, Maxwell’s Demons #1, is mistakenly rated as “All-Ages”. The proper rating is TEEN (13+) for mild language and violence.
In order help retailers clarify the proper rating to Free Comic Book Day patrons, Vault Comics has created a set of ready-to-print shelf-talkers, flyers, and cover stickers for retailers to download and use them.
Written by Deniz Camp with art by Vittorio Astone, Maxwell’s Demons stars Maxwell Maas is the greatest mind the world has ever known, but at 10 years old he has a lot to learn. Adventuring to distant worlds through his makeshift multiversal closet door, Max will encounter greatness and goodness on a cosmic scale. But will he realize that danger lurks on both sides of the door before it’s too late?
