    The only thing with more heart than Canto, and his tale, is the heart that radiates from the pages, put there by the entire creative team and their love for this little guy. CANTO is not only a huge win for IDW, it's a wondrous gift for the comic book community and its fans. Whereas generations past recalled tales found in books and novels, CANTO is shaping up to be a tale to pass on to future generations. This is the type of comic that we need to see more often.

    Subversion of expectation is a bit of a buzz phrase at the moment but this issue managed to catch me off guard yet again. You know something is good when you go back and read it again almost straight away (and not because you werent able to follow it first-time round). If anything, I would be critical of how the pacing shift in the action makes this feel like a somewhat shorter read overall. In my excitement, I no doubt rushed through on first reading but savoured every panel with the second. This is a series you dont want to miss. Read Full Review
