BOOM! Studios surprised us all by separating the original graphic novel Wynd into single issues and releasing the first one pretty quickly. That proved to be a hit as the debut chapter has sold out at the distribution level. A new printing is on the way with a cover by Jorge Corona, due out in July.
Written by James Tynion IV, illustrated by Michael Dialynas, and lettered by Aditya Bidikar, the comic is set in a world where magical heritage is punishable by death, forcing a young boy named Wynd to keep his true identity – and pointy ears – secret from everyone in Pipetown. When his secret is threatened, Wynd must leave his home behind to set out on a dangerous quest that will put him at the heart of a royal conspiracy beyond his imagination.
Filip Sablik, President, Publishing & Sales, BOOM! Studios says:
We knew that comic fans would be hungry for an innovative, exciting new series as the comic market reopened. We also knew the enchanting story James & Michael had crafted with Wynd was the perfect surprise series – and we’re thrilled that readers around the world agree. Getting this second printing in stores the same day as Wynd #2 ensures that no one will miss out on the magic that James, Michael and Aditya have created!
Wynd #1 Second Printing is set for release on July 22nd, 2020.
