The team that brought you CANTO has put together a darker tale of a tortured man who’s been haunted all his life by a painting that eats people… and it’s hungry.
OCT. 5, 2023, (PITTSBURGH, PA) — Nolan Ward has tried everything to outrun it, but it’s finally caught up to him. And it’s hungry…
Announcing THE FEEDING, a one-shot horror story coming soon to Zoop! For the first time since 2019, Eisner-nominated writer David M. Booher (RAIN, KILLER QUEENS) and fan-favorite artist Drew Zucker (THE HOUSE) have teamed up with CANTO colorist Vittorio Astone and letterer AndWorld Design once more for new adult horror one-shot that’s decidedly more sinister!
Investment banker Nolan Ward is on top of the world–wealthy, fit, attractive, and available. Yet, his drug-fueled partying masks a darker past. When he meets a mysterious art gallery owner, he’ll come face-to-face with the ghost that has haunted him all his life. It’s a painting called The Feeding. It has returned… and it’s ready for its next meal.
The Zoop campaign is unique—it will be the only way to get these exclusive variant covers. Copies will be limited to Zoop backers, and once the campaign is over, the covers will be retired and never reprinted!
“Drew and I have talked almost daily for four years while making CANTO,” said David M. Booher. “We’ve always batted around ideas for other stories, especially horror, since we’re both horror hounds. When we landed on the concept behind THE FEEDING, we knew it was the one. Eerie and disturbing in the best possible way, this is our love letter to CREEPSHOW, TWILIGHT ZONE, TALES FROM THE CRYPT, and all the horror stories that keep us up at night.”
“David and I have always been big horror fans,” said Drew Zucker. “It’s a genre that we both have a strong draw to, and before CANTO did work in. When the opportunity came along to do THE FEEDING, it was a chance to not only take a story that started as an actual nightmare for me, but pull in the entire CANTO team and see what we could do together. The end result has been exciting, being able to take all of these lessons from the last few years and apply them into a brand new horror story.”
