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.”

DC has released a preview of the upcoming Titans: Beast World miniseries, which was announced this past summer. The crossover event will feature a main series by Tom Taylor, Ivan Reis and Danny Miki, with various tie-ins throughout.
The story centers on The Necrostar, a giant space starfish that rivals Starro and who the Titans, along with the rest of the DC Universe, team up to fight. Along the way, they somehow end up being turned into animal versions of themselves. Beast Boy, in fact, will show that it takes a giant starfish to stop a giant starfish, as he transforms into a version of Starro himself.
Here’s a preview, along with a look at the main cover, which is by Ivan Reis, Danny Miki and Brad Anderson:
