Wynonna Earp is a descendant of the famous old west lawman Wyatt Earp. Colour me unimpressed. She is drafted by the US Marshals Black Badge division to go after all things which go bump in the night. Wynonna is a no nonsense cop who experiences absolutely no fear up against creatures which would make the most of at the very least scream and run the opposite direction.
My decision to read Wynnona Earp is based on our commitment to read the source material of all media that we watch. Wynnona Earp, the television series which is currently airing on Syfy. The television show really is aimed around the idea that Wynnona is a descendant of Wyatt, which is not a central point to the comics. She is chosen for her skill and her fearlessness.
I find Wynnona as a crime fighter absolutely ridiculous. She runs into situations with little planning and little back up. Invariably, despite the fact that Wynnona is strong, she needs to be saved by a man twice. Can you picture any male protagonist with the same background having to be saved, let alone by a woman?
The artwork in this comic leaves so much desired. Why is it that any male law enforcement official is dressed from head to toe, while Wynnona sports thigh highs, a bare midriff or short skirts? Who gets into battle looking like this?
