Thankfully, my fears were groundless with Wynonna Earp: Legends: Doc Holliday, which is written by Tim Rozon, who plays Doc on the excellent TV series - and Wynonna creator Beau Smith.
They've crafted an opening chapter that manages to stay true to the characters and creates a nasty new villain in the process.
The story brings a trio of Black Badges - Wynonna, Doc Holliday and the warrior woman Valdez - to Portland, searching for a paranormal mass murderer.
What they find is an old enemy Doc knows all too well - and he may be too much for even three lawmen / women.
The art (and the cover above) is by Chris Evenhuis, who has a clean, powerful style that draws you in and won't let go - and his character designs are spot on. Add in strong layouts and lots of energy - it's impressive work!
And I shouldn't have worried about Rozon - by all reports, he's a comic fan, so he knows the territory. And his first effort here is solid as a rock!
(And if bad guy Boone Helm doesn't give you the creeps, no one will.)
