Canto returns at Dark Horse to search for ‘A Place Like Home’

David M. Booher and Drew Zucker’s clockwork hero returns in a third miniseries.

David M. Booher and Drew Zucker’s Canto found a new home at Dark Horse last year, when the publisher announced plans to release new printings of the first two volumes that were previously published by IDW.

But the tiny clockwork hero’s adventures don’t end there — Dark Horse has announced Canto: A Place Like Home, a new six-issue miniseries by Booher and Zucker that will debut in June.  Joined by colorist Vittorio Astone and letterer Andworld Design, Booher and Zucker will bring Canto’s battle against the Shrouded Man to a conclusion in the series.

“We’ve always known where this story was headed,” Zucker said. “But it still feels surreal to have finally made it. When we set out on CANTO’s adventure I’m not sure we could have predicted how life changing it would be both professionally and personally. It has been a genuine pleasure to not only tell CANTO’s story, but share it with all of the readers who have come on this adventure with us. I couldn’t be more excited to bring The Shrouded Man Saga to a close with our amazing creative partners and the team at Dark Horse Comics.”

‘Ahsoka’ comes to comics this summer

Rodney Barnes, Steven Cummings and Georges Jeanty will bring Anakin Skywalker’s former apprentice to the printed page.

Marvel has announced plans to bring Ahsoka to comics in an eight-issue miniseries by Rodney Barnes, Steven Cummings and Georges Jeanty.

Much like the recent Mandalorian and Obi-Wan comics, this one sounds like it’ll be another straight-up adaptation of the Ahsoka Disney+ show, versus a new story. Played by Rosario Dawson, the show brought the popular character from The Clone Wars animated series to live action, along with characters from Star Wars: Rebels and Admiral Thrawn, who first debuted in the books by Timothy Zahn.

“It is truly an honor to be adapting Ahsoka,” Barnes told “The character is the essence of classic Star Wars: layered, complex and fun! I hope the fans enjoy this adaptation as much as the series it’s adapted from.”
