BOOM! Studios today is proud to reveal character designs by acclaimed artist Michael Dialynas (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) for WYND. The all new original series reunities award-winning superstars James Tynion IV (Something is Killing the Children, Batman) and Dialynas, with letterer Aditya Bidikar (Isola). Tynion IV and Dialynas previously collaborated for three years on the GLAAD Award winning series The Woods.
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.
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 – which Filip Sablik (President, Publishing & Marketing, BOOM! Studios) explained in a special message to BOOM!’s retail partners that you can view here: A Message to Retailers About WYND.
