IDW Publishing has announced another Canto series from David M. Booher and Drew Zucker. Canto III: Lionhearted arrives in July 2021.
The tiny clockwork knight in search of a heart has found his people’s freedom and has saved them from the curse of the Shrouded Man, but is he ready to face his enemy on the battlefield? After making the ultimate sacrifice, Canto bears a weapon that could defeat the Shrouded Man and free all the inhabitants of the Unnamed World. Now, he races to find a hidden settlement of his former slavers to enlist them as allies in the coming war. That is… if the Shrouded Man doesn’t find them first…
“Lionhearted may be my favorite Canto story yet,” said writer David M. Booher in a press release. “We explore what it means to have courage in the face of fear. Drew and Vittorio have done career-defining work on art and colors for this new story. Canto fans and new readers alike are going to love where we take our little clockwork hero next.”
“As we’ve progressed the story, we’re now finding ways to use the world we have built,” said artist Drew Zucker in the same press release. “This has been one of the most exciting times I’ve had working on Canto yet! We’re using all the old elements and blending them with the new ones to help tell a story that gets to the heart of what Canto is all about. I can’t wait to share the twists and turns this particular adventure takes with everyone.”
Canto III: Lionhearted #1 arrives on July 14, 2021.
