Wynonna Earp #4

   Zombies are all the rage, and it was just a matter of time before they reared their undead heads in the direction of Wynonna Earp.

   Of course, as a monster-hunting Marshal with the Black Badge Division, she'd have it no other way - and where other titles (which shall go unnamed) would stretch a plague of zombies over dozens (or hundreds) of issues, Wynonna and her fellow enforcers show how to expedite the matter.

   Beau Smith provides a fast and funny adventure set in the shopping mall of the damned, as a scientist (we won't say he's mad - but he is pretty wacky) turns shoppers into the army of the dead!

   The art is by Lora Innes, and it's wonderful - she captures the likenesses of the actors, infuses lots of energy and animation (and a health dollop of gore) and a wonderful sense of humor into the proceedings.

    The series captures the verbal interplay between the characters and ties in nicely to the cast of the TV show on SyFy (which is quite good - if you're not already, you should be watching this show. It's a great mix of horror, action and humor, with great writing and feisty characters.)

   What more do you need?

Grade: A
