Six issues down and Boom! Studios demon hunting/time travelling adventure, Lucas Stand, comes to an exciting conclusion. After the ups and downs of previous issues our reviewer, Darryll Robson, takes a look at the series finale.

Lucas Stand #6 Review

Kurt Sutter and Caitlin Kittredge's Lucas Stand started on a high that it had difficulty reaching in the following issues. The central character hopped through time like a drug addled Sam Beckett from Quantum Leap and the narrative often fell too easily into time travelling cliches. However Lucas has arrived in the future and the comic has the opportunity to dig into his psyche in ways not possible previously.

Synopsis

Lucas wakes for a brief moment in a hospital bed, shocked by his sudden arrival in the future. But this moment is fleeting as he once more succumbs to darkness only to travel further into the future.

The future he arrives in is a medieval, hunter/gatherer world inhabited by tribal warriors and healers. The world he knew has been gone for longer than anyone can remember and to Lucas it appears to be a Utopian life. He is free from pain, free from the longing for drugs and alcohol, free from the demons that have ruled his life in recent years. Lucas has found a place to settle down and call home.

Add to this the ravishing Emily and Lucas is set up for life.
