LoveReading View on Free Lance and the Field of Blood

In a nutshell: adventure, double dealing, more adventure

Free Lance is very handy on the jousting field, and if you want exciting yet comic adventures, full of medieval types behaving badly, then this series is pretty well unbeatable too. In this episode Lance’s plans to win big at a tournament are upset when it emerges that the organisers, and some of the other competitors too, are thoroughly corrupt. Fortunately, Lance has brains to match his brawn and escapes with his integrity intact as well as the prize money. There’s a comic book feel in the speed and tone of the telling, text and illustrations working together brilliantly: accessible, intelligent and lots of fun.  ~ Andrea Reece
