<i>Canto</i>&#8217;s Clockwork Heart Starts Beating in This Exclusive Preview

IDW Publishing may be best known for impressive licenses like Transformers, My Little Pony and the recent all-ages Marvel Action titles, but the publisher is also home to an array of compelling original properties, from Locke & Key to Road of Bones to the upcoming Canto, which debuts next month. An all-ages fable inspired by Frank L. Baum’s Wizard of Oz—and Dante’s InfernoCanto introduces the titular tin hero, whose people have been enslaved for generations, their beating hearts replaced by clocks. After a slaver damages one tin girl’s clock beyond repair, Canto sets out on a fantastic journey to recover her heart. Canto, a six-issue mini-series, comes courtesy of rising creators David M. Booher (Alien Bounty Hunter) and Drew Zucker (The House), and we’ve got an exclusive preview of Zucker and colorist Vittorio Astone’s interior art below. Check that out, and be sure to nab Canto when it hits stands June 26th.
