Review: Wynonna Earp #7

WE_07_CVRI’ve been a Wynonna Earp fan since before it became a TV show (if you haven’t seen it yet, it’s time to get your binge watch on because it has been renewed for a second season.) This was a time before Wynonna got the make-under and went from a blond sex bomb to the more realistic brunette bad ass she is today. The recent reboot style update that IDW Publishing put out to match the TV show and bring newer fans into the Wynonna Earp fold has kept all of the good stuff and added a little bit more awesome.

Wynonna Earp Issue #7 is the match that is going to start a huge forest fire and after reading it, I’m ready to go get some marshmallows and join in on the bonfire. Beau Smith gives us a nice heaping spoonful of the new standard of Wynonna Earp and I can’t wait for another taste. Let’s start with the story, Wynonna has been on her usual kill every supernatural baddie that moves kick and she’s kind of burnt out. She convinces Dolls to let he have a vacation and Val comes along to keep Wynonna from killing everything. Wynonna is a magnet for trouble and that’s what we love about her. She’s witty, smart, resourceful and can take care of herself. This issue keeps her true to her amazing form.

Val and Wynonna set out on a road trip for a week with no real plans , just a need for the open road. Since this is a Wynonna Earp adventure trouble is brewing in the distance,so of the Black Badge detainees are planning a break. There’s a rescue mission at a roadside stand, a biker fight and a lure into something else.The artwork is basic but , it pops and tells the story.

The artwork is basic but , it pops and tells the story. The show stills are a nice bonus but, seem kind of unnecessary considering if you’re already seven issues in, it’s because you’re already hooked. Issue #7 is just as consistent as every other issue. The writing is clever and is just as much a page-turner as the action is. It’s like a mini episode in your pocket that you read. It was flawless to the last panel which left me filled with ideas and hope for whatever is coming next.
