BOOM! Studios have dropped an early look at WYND #1, the all-new limited series from the award-winning “The Woods” partnership of James Tynion IV and Michael Dialynas, and featuring lettering from rising star Aditya Bidikar.
This new series introduces readers to a world where magical heritage is punishable by death, so a young boy named Wynd must keep his true identity – and pointy ears – a secret from everyone in Pipetown, even if it means he’ll never have the normal life he wants. But when his secret is threatened, Wynd is forced to leave his home behind to embark on a dangerous quest that will put him at the heart of a royal conspiracy beyond his imagination.
Interestingly, this is the first original series from BOOM! Studios to be announced and solicited outside of the traditional solicitation cycle, which normally involves soliciting product three months in advance to retailers and fans. Though WYND was originally announced as an original graphic novel from the BOOM! Box imprint for a November 2020 release, the company “saw a unique opportunity to deliver fans and retailers a new Must Read series at a crucial time in the comics industry.”
Featuring a main cover from Dialynas and a variants by Dan Mora and Peach Momoko, WYND #1 will go on sale June 17th from local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Madefire.
