 Wynonna Erp, the descendent of the famous Wyatt Earp, is a covert U.S. Marshal who tracks down paranormal fugitives. In THE YETI WARS, she finds herself on the trail of Doctor Robidoux, a madman who fashions himself as the next Doctor Frankenstein. 

 Miss Earp goes about her business in the expected fashion and appears to be one tough cookie. Locating the bad scientist isn't hard for her but he's definitely not going to go without a fight. The Marshal soon discovers that she has her work cut out for her. 

 I've always thought that Beau Smith was a talented writer. Being the creator of Wynonna Earp, he of course knows everything there is to know about our heroine and the reader is never left wondering if she's acting out of character. I remember reading his articles in SKETCH MAGAZINE and it's nice to see firsthand what he can do. The dialogue flowed naturally and I liked the interaction between Earp and the other soldiers. 

 Enrique Villagran looks to be a promising artist. At his best he has a style that reminded me a lot of Joe Staton. But too often his panels looked rushed and unfinished. While he did a great job on Wynonna, herself... especially in the splash pages and cover... some parts of the comic looked like it could have benefited from having another inker help him out. At times the art appeared washed out or too bright for what was going on in the scene. 

 There's a good balance of action in the book and I can see it's heading somewhere exciting but there was a lot of inconsistency in the artwork that really distracted me from the story and I couldn't stay interested. THE YETI WARS has the potential to be a really good adventure tale but I don't think that the art was a good match for what Smith was trying to tell here.
