What I thought of this book
I saw the show Wynonna Earp on TV but I always missed it and I am one who has to watch from the beginning so I just skipped it. So when I saw this graphic novel I had to grab it up to see what it was about. Homecoming covers episodes 1-6 of the comics. At only 120 pages and it being a graphic I can’t say a whole lot about without giving to much away.
Wynonna Earp works for a US Marshall branch that hunts down the paranormal. She is an ancestor of the great Wyatt Earp who we find out was also a demon hunter. It’s a family destiny that just happens to hit Wynonna.
They start off after a chupacabra brain smuggler Del Ray and end up with a fight in Tombstone with Johnny Ringo.
She is pretty new to everything and a bit of a hot head and goes a little rogue at times so they bring in Valdez a big ole Mayan woman to kind of be her handler. That was pretty interesting.
There is a character that is always helping her and the other Black Badges but he is not a marshall by the name of John Henry. I pretty much had him figured out before he told Wynonna who he really was, but it is still cool.
I liked all the characters and can’t wait to see Wynonna grow into her legend as she is a bit of a rogue right now but I think she will get better with time. Especially now that she is starting to learn more about what is going on and everything. All the characters are great from Agent Dolls to Valdez.
Overall, I really enjoyed these adventures with Wynonna Earp and now I really want to see the TV show so I hope it comes on Netflix soon! 🙂
I also can’t wait for more graphic novels as well cause it kind of leaves me wanting more. 🙂
