Best Review Ever! FREELANCE #3
TITLE: FREELANCE #3
WRITER: Jim Zub and Andrew Wheeler
ILLUSTRATOR: Vaneda Vireak and Cindy Leong
LETTERS: Andrew Thomas
EDITOR: Aaron Feldman
COVER: Alex Perkins
SUMMARY: Terror on the racetrack! In the penultimate issue of the series, Apollyon has activated the Breach Key in Istanbul, and only Lance and his team stand in the way of total destruction. But when one member gets kidnapped, Lance must outrace the clock if he hopes to save the world – and his friend.
COMMENTS: Apollyon has taken the Break key and John. Now Lance and Tasha must save humanity. We discover the deep affection John has for Lance but are still unsure if it is reciprocal. We assume that Lance loves John too, but we never hear it from Lance. Tasha and her mother are reunited. To top everything off we have a globe-trotting adventure, in the tradition of Even Bourne or James Bond that takes us to Pripyat, Ukraine. I didn’t know it was called anything but Chernobyl. It’s a lot of action and little story this issue. It will be a great middle chapter of the eventual TPB but as a stand alone issue, it felt like a middle chapter.
