My Review:
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is one of those cases where I actually got into the television show prior to the comics, and I think that actually ruined my reading experience. Why? Because in this case, the show was actually better.

When I saw that NetGalley had "Wynonna Earp Volume 1: Homecoming" available for review, I jumped at the chance to read it, having come to enjoy SyFy's adaption of the comics. And while I know that adaptions are usually different takes on their source material, I still had some hope for the comics. Unfortunately, this was kind of a bore. Which was really surprising given that there are various paranormal creature, a sassy kick-ass female lead, and a great supporting cast.

Even still, if you have the time, I'd say Homecoming is worth a read. It does have its moments - mainly between Wynonna and Valdez - they are just few and far between, sadly.
