LOS ANGELES, CA (June 25, 2020) – BOOM! Studios announced today that WYND #1, the premiere issue of the surprise original series from award-winning superstars James Tynion IV (Something is Killing the Children, Batman) and artist Michael Dialynas (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), with letterer Aditya Bidikar (Isola), has sold out at the distributor level! In response to the overwhelming support from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios has announced WYND #1 SECOND PRINTING, available in July 2020 and featuring cover art by superstar artist Jorge Corona (Middlewest).
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.
