ONION DROP 8/3: The Wynd Beneath Your Wings
We’re back at it with another Onion Drop, this one to support the return of my Eisner and GLAAD Media Award nominated Young Adult action-adventure series, Wynd, in stores on August 24th!
WYND: THE THRONE IN THE SKY #1 is the start of Book Three of the larger Wynd Saga. It’s written by me, James Tynion IV, drawn by the incredible Michael Dialynas, and lettered by AndWorld Design.
Wynd is a YA Fantasy Epic for fans of series like Avatar: The Last Airbender or Bone. It’s set in a world where magic is infectious. If an ordinary human walks out into the forest and makes contact with a magical being, the magic will infect their blood and twist their body making them look different. In the land of Esseriel, The Human Kingdom has walled its capital city Pipetown off from its magic-blooded neighbors - The militaristic Vampyres who live in the Western Deserts, and the Insectoid Faeries who live in the Eastern Forests. Humans fear the strange, magical “weirdbloods”- magic-tainted humans - most of all, and the King has instituted blood laws that prohibit any being with magic blood to live in the city.
At the start of our first book, Wynd was a teenage boy with a secret. His pointed ears were a telltale sign that he was a weirdblood. He was raised in secret by his adopted mother, Miss Molly, and his adopted sister Oakley. All he ever wanted was to be normal, but when he was swept up into a plot to get the Prince of Pipetown out of the Human Kingdom, his ordinary life is ripped apart, and he is forced to run for his life. Over the course of his journey, he learns that he must embrace the magic in himself, and allow it to change him, in order to find peace with himself and to survive.
The first two books are available in paperback right now from Boom! Studios, and WYND: THE THRONE IN THE SKY #1 will be in stores on August 24th, and we’ve got some great goodies available for paid subscribers to this newsletter, including an amazing Tiny Onion Variant Cover by the amazing Alvaro Martinez Bueno!
