    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Gabriel Hernandez Jun 17, 2020

    WYND #1 is a promising start to a completely new property. The art is whimsical and fun, and the story starts a lot of threads that begs more than a few questions. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens in the next issue. Read Full Review

    When Wynd sprints off on a break from work, I certainly didn't expect a voyeuristic moment to take place. Oakley's reaction to Wynd during the dream sequence was also quite comical. What could have been a scary tale takes breaks and makes you say, “I did not see that coming.” Moments like this are the most magical thing about this book. It seems like every panel brought a new breeze blowing though which I found quite refreshing. I have to say this book is quite amusing and I wonder how the “winds” will shift in this book.

    Michael Dialynas does some great work with the art in this first issue. The animated style of the characters does a lot to enhance the fantasy elements of the story. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Jun 18, 2020

    An impressive opening then, with the creative team which includes the dynamic-yet-unobtrusive lettering of Aditya Bidikar working together seamlessly as they take full advantage of every inch of every single page to tell their story. A story of magic, secrets and the fear which comes with being true to yourself, Wynd is a new series which comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jun 17, 2020

    When all is said and done,Wynd #1 does an excellent job establishing the characters and world this story will continue to explore. Im curious to see where Wynds journey will take him. And whether or not the more closed-minded denizens of Pipetown might learn a thing or two from him. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ingrid Lind-Jahn Jun 20, 2020

    Wynd #1 is setting up to be not just a coming of age story, but a story where there are problems in the world, and young people have a new attitude about then that isn't shared by their elders. How wonderfully timely this is, and I am looking forward to their adventures. This book costs a little more, but it is a solid forty-six pages that introduce us smoothly to the world and the characters. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Mike Nickells Jun 17, 2020

    The oversized 40 page issue really gives time and space for the writing of Tynion IV and the art of Dialynas to bring the world of Wynd to life and create some very poignant moments in the meantime. This slowly developing story leaves several very intriguing avenues to be explored and I for one am interested in seeing where WYND goes in the upcoming issues. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Danilo To Jun 17, 2020

    I'm not really a big avid medieval fantasy reader but I really enjoyed reading Wynd. The experience set up by the amazingly assembled cast of professionals really comes across. The fact that every issue is double the length of regular ones also helps as this is a comic you should really enjoy if you take a while, sit down and take it all in. Read Full Review

    Wynd is definitely a book worth looking at, but if you're able to wait for it to be collected, that's probably your best option. I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment. Read Full Review

    A deceptively scary look at a fantastical kind of racism, "Wynd" is definitely a series to look out for. Read Full Review
