@FreelanceBlues #6 @ALTERNACOMICS Review from @kleffnotes

Just going to a funeral is emotionally exhausting, but can you even imagine if you had to literally fight your way to see your loved one laid to rest? Lance just wants to see his grandfather one last time and in this final stretch of his journey he finds himself dealing with unexpected dangers at the most inconvenient time.

In Freelance Blues #6 Lance has finally made it to California. Even though he has battled his way there he still finds himself just a moment too late. Everyone has already left the funeral home to go to the cemetery. Something doesn’t seem right to Lance and even though he wants to make it to the funeral, he takes a moment to investigate something a worker mentioned is happening in the basement. A Frankensteinian fight breaks out between Lance and a shady doctor, but he won’t let that stop him. With an arrival of a familiar face he finally gets to the cemetery. He might have missed the service, but this story isn’t over yet. Lance finally learns just why he keeps finding himself in dangerous situations, which just might surprise you.

I loved how the plot of this story resolved. I wasn’t expecting the reason that was revealed for Lance’s remarkably terrible luck. The final panels set slightly in the future were wonderful and I hope to see more of Lance, especially now that he knows a bit more about himself. If you like monsters and dramatic fight scenes, mixed with a dash of comedy, you definitely need to check out Freelance Blues.
