Once, a little tin slave with a clock for a heart broke all the rules–he found love, took a name, and escaped his masters to go on an epic journey to save his beloved. Along the way, he met strange allies and terrifying enemies and, ultimately, though his adventure didn’t turn out as planned, he returned to his people and led them to freedom. The freedom that Canto won so desperately is in danger, as he discovers his people’s clocks will stop unless they return to captivity. He and his friends Falco, Rikta, and Veratta embark on a new adventure to save the lives of all their people. On their quest, they’ll encounter old friends, relentless monsters, and the village of the mysterious Hollow Men. Will Canto and his friends lift the curse and save their people before time runs out?
Praise for Canto II: The Hollow Men #1
“…one of the best comic series in recent memory.” –
Samantha Puc , CBR
Canto II: The Hollow Men #1 is a lovely fantasy comic that takes inspiration from the Wizard of Oz‘s heartless Tin-Man and creates its own world filled with unique characters. The art is so amazing to look at, with designs that look new and original. The story has a powerful identity and depth.” – William Tucker, But Why Tho
“The art in this book is gorgeous.”
