Every time Lance Bunkman starts a new job his bosses turn out to be evil and trying to take over the world. Fortunately, he's the only one who can stop them. He's got to fight his boss, save his co-workers, and then he needs a new job, because being a hero doesn't pay the bills. Lance has been too busy working (not to mention dodging fireballs, chainsaws or poison arrows) to ever ask "Why me?" Now events are set in motion, that will make Lance learn more about himself, and the secrets of his sketchy employment, than he ever imagined. It's a supernatural workplace horror comedy for anyone who ever felt that their job was sucking the life out of them.

    A solid start to the comic. Relatable subject matter and interesting concept executed in a unique way. A few things left unexplained but as the series progresses hopefully all questions will be answered. Read Full Review

    While Freelance Blues isn't the strongest or most original story I've read, I did find myself liking it quite a bit. To the point that I stopped watching a TV show midway through to finish the story. It may not captivate you, but it'll definitely entertain you so if you're looking for a family story in the midst of a monster hunting story, then check out Freelance Blues. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Isaac Quattlebaum Feb 18, 2016

    For any comic book creator a first issue is a make or break time period. Every page has to be used to push the story forward and leave the reader wanting more. I'm not sure what level these writers and artist are at in their careers but the fact that the comic was composed in a fairly decent structure is an achievement. It's the flaws in both the dialogue and artwork that make this achievement invisible. Out of the outpour of recent indie titles this one just does not stand out. Read Full Review
