The Legend of Luther Strode #2The Legend of Luther Strode #2
Written by Justin Jordan
Art by Tradd Moore
Colors by Felipe Sobreiro
Image Comics
Release Date: January 9, 2013
Cover Price: $3.50

This is my first time reading any Luther Strode at all, so you’ll have to pardon any ignorance I have when it comes to this book. The Legend of Luther Strode #2 takes place 5 years after the first series, and honestly, after reading this issue, I could wait another 5 years to read another issue of this book.

Writer Justin Jordan turns out a book that’s not quite sure where it’s going. The character of Luther Strode is basically the Punisher Max with some sort of super powers. Strode is putting his fist right THROUGH people, pulling theirs heads literally off their bodies, and other such violence. Now, I am the LAST person that has a problem with graphic language, violence, or anything like that, but it just doesn’t work here. Jordan tries too hard to make everyone say the F word or any other colorful language that he can come up with. Also, Jordan takes a cue from a bunch of action movies, and has a young girl try and be the voice of reason for Strode. Again, it just doesn’t work for me.

Tradd Moore could’ve been the one thing that saves this book, but unfortunately, he doesn’t. He’s got a weird John Romita, Jr. vibe, but he’s nowhere near that yet. Lots of very bold lines and inside and around them are a bunch of scratchy lines. All of his characters look a little too much like each other for my taste. I found myself confused at times as to who was talking to whom. Now, I’m not saying he’s a terrible artist, I know a lot of people like his work, I’m just not one of them.

I really wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone. If you’re looking for a cool independent series from Image, check out Revival or Hoax Hunters. Leave this one on the rack.
