Get a New Look at James Tynion IV and Michael Dialynas’ WYND #1

BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at the surprise release of WYND #1, kicking off an all-new original limited series by the award-winning superstars James Tynion IV and artist Michael Dialynas, with letterer Aditya Bidikar. Tynion IV and Dialynas previously collaborated for three years on the GLAAD Award winning series The Woods.

WYND #1 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.

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.

WYND #1 features a main cover illustrated by series artist Michael Dialynas and variant cover art by acclaimed artists Dan Moraand Peach Momoko. It comes to shelves on June 17, 2020.

James Tynion IV and Michael Dialynas’ WYND Goes from Graphic Novel to Limited Series in June

BOOM! Studios has announced the surprise release of WYND #1, kicking off an all-new original limited series by the award-winning superstars James Tynion IV and artist Michael Dialynas, with letterer Aditya Bidikar. Tynion IV and Dialynas previously collaborated for three years on the GLAAD Award-winning series The Woods.

WYND #1, featuring a cover by Dialynas, will be on-sale June 17, 2020 at comic shops – just one week after the landmark release of Something is Killing the Children Vol. 1, the top ordered graphic novel in the comics industry, and DC’s hotly anticipated Batman #92, both written by Tynion IV. Every issue of WYND will feature over 40 pages of story – more than twice the standard comic.

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. The unorthodox and one-time only approach allows BOOM! Studios to deliver the debut issue of the series in only one month.

WYND 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.

Now on the run with the boy of his dreams, his best friend Oakley, and a literal prince, Wynd will have to embrace the magic within himself if he wants to save them from the shocking dangers that await!
