BOOM! Studios has announced that Wynd, the five-issue miniseries by The Woods team of James Tynion IV, Michael Dialynas and Aditya Bidikar, will return with issue #6 in May.
The series, which was originally supposed to be a graphic novel, was released early and as a miniseries as a way to help retailers when the comics industry returned from its COVID-19 lockdown earlier this year.
“James, Michael, and Aditya have built a world so steeped in magic and adventure, it’s been an absolute pleasure to see it all unfold,” said Eric Harburn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Wynd’s story is far from over, and we can’t wait to show fans and new readers alike what’s in store for the magical winged boy and his friends as they journey across Esseriel in search of the place they truly belong.”
Here’s how BOOM! describes the sixth issue:
WYND #6 continues the adventure with fresh faces and untold dangers in a world where magical heritage is feared and in certain parts, punishable by death. The young boy named Wynd has kept 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 in order to survive the great, wide world full of vampires, faeries, conspiracies, and even greater dangers than those he left behind!
Wynd #6, featuring cover art by Dialynas, will be available exclusively at local comic shops in May 2021. Every issue will feature over 40 pages of story. In addition, a trade paperback of the first five issues will arrive in March for comics retailers and in May everywhere else.
