Canto's epic second adventure concludes! Canto has entered the Valley of the Lionhearted and learned he can only lift the Shrouded Man's curse by sacrificing his own clock.

    While not as hard-hitting as the first Canto, Canto II still sets up a very engaging, emotional, and meticulously crafted story, carrying on the fairy-tale trope from its predecessor. Canto II acts more of a transitional arc to set up for the final confrontation between Canto and the antagonists, and takes its time to further develop and permeate its ideas and goals. It is splendid to read. The Art by Zucker is again, fabulous. Capture the full essence that is European-styled fantasy. The pencils, the colors, the composition, everything from a visual standpoint easily puts Canto II or the Canto series in general as the best of recent years.

    But what rounds out this arc is the themes, the ideas, and how Booher conveys those ideas more
