If you liked The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, you’re gonna love it’s follow up, “The Legend of Luther Strode”. Justin Jordan and Tradd Moore ramp up the ultraviolence in this one and it’s SICK. Hard to believe if you’ve read Vol. 1. (Which you definitely should prior to pickin’ this one up or reading this review.)

Luther’s matured passed the Peter Parker or Dave Lizewski characterizations of the last collection in the five years since the end of the first book and is more a combination of Frank Castle and the Wolverine here. Luther also looks like he’s been hitting the Dbol hard between volumes. He’s a fuckin’ monster in this book. Boy’s gonna need it too, because he’s got his hands full in this one.

As was noted in the first volume, Luther’s not the only one to have read “The Hercules Method” and the others that have are out to rein him in. He’s been a busy boy since the end of the first book and there’s some folks out there that are none too happy about it. As to who and why, Jordan starts to shed a little more light on what’s going on with that as well.

My girl Petra’s back with some fresh ink and a new perspective. What her agenda is and whether or not she’s still wet for Luther remains to be seen. Petra remains the foul-mouthed, wise-ass I loved from the first book though. Appreciated that.

description

Tradd Moore goes insane and illustrates the shit outta Jordan’s script. Tradd enthusiastically brings all the ridiculous carnage to life as Luther rampages from page to page. Felipe Sobreiro continues to pump the color into Moore’s kinetic bloodbath in this collection as well. Somebody get Felipe some more red ink, he’s gotta be runnin’ low.

So if you loved vol. 1, what are you waiting for? If you thought The Strange Talent of Luther Strode was over the top, just keep on going. This one’s even crazier. And for me, that’s a good thing.

About Lono

I spend most of my time thinking about comics, tattoos, guns, beer, comics, my kids, comics, my wife, bourbon, samurai, comics, boobs, and English Bulldogs. And very rarely, if ever, think about work. I’m the less literate, rarely appropriate, knuckle-dragger of the bunch. I’ll make any excuse to hang out with my Shallow Reading pals, nerding out about comics, and avoiding responsibility at all costs. Only my name has been changed to protect the justifiably embarrassed. For completely un-waxed full frontal nudity, hit me up over at Goodreads.
