BOOM! Studios today announced that Wynd #1 from Michael Dialynas and James Tynion IV will kick off its limited run in June 2020.
BOOM! Studios had previously released its June 2020 solicitation schedule, making this upcoming release outside of normal solicitation cycle a first for the publisher. Wynd was also announced as an original graphic novel that was scheduled to arrive in November 2020.
“This unprecedented early release of WYND allows us to deliver one of our biggest new series of the year to readers sooner than expected and provides comic shop retailers with another hit series in one of the most important months of the year,” said Matt Gagnon, Editor in Chief, BOOM! Studios in a press release. “We know that readers are looking for entertainment that transports us to another world, delivering characters you love and a journey you can’t wait to follow month to month–-which James, Michael and Aditya deliver in this incredible fantasy epic.”
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!
The first issue of Wynd arrives on June 17, 2020.
