The Legend of Luther Strode is Coming This December from Image Comics


The strange talent is now a legend.

Earlier this year, Image Comics released an oddly named book called The Strange Talent of Luther Strode. Written by Justin Jordan and illustrated by Tradd Moore, the book transcended the everyday comic book level and became an instant classic. Anyone who know me knows how much I loved this book: it is by far on the “Best of 2012” list, so seeing the first issue of the sequel to hit in the same year has me blown away. Now, what’s it about?

Luther Strode is a skinny, geeky nerd who isn’t a hit with the ladies, or anyone else for that matter. It was sending away for an offer to bulk up and become a man’s man in the back of a comic called The Hercules Method (think the Atlas ads from the old comics) that gave me crazy powers and made his world a descending nightmare. Blood soaked and loving it, the book ended with one of the best cliffhangers I’ve seen in a book, making me and the rest of the world waiting for this sequel.

The Legend of Luther Strode hits this December from Image Comics. Here is some official info from Image as well:

The Image Comics mini-series THE STRANGE TALENT OF LUTHER STRODE ended in a baptism of blood as former geeky weakling Luther Strode discovered the depths of the powers he developed with “The Hercules Method” of strengthening — and with a promise of more mayhem.

The critically lauded mini-series catapulted creators Justin Jordan and Tradd Moore into the consciousness of comics readers. Now they’re bringing their unlikely (anti-?)hero back with THE LEGEND OF LUTHER STRODE, a mini-series set five years after STRANGE TALENT. The first issue will be in stores on December 5.
