The complete Luther Strode series, made up of a trilogy of mini-series from Image Comics by Justin Jordan, Tradd Moore and Felipe Sobreiro is to be collected into a gorgeous hardcover edition by the publisher and available in comic stores Wednesday, October 4th and in book stores Tuesday, October 10th.
Collecting The Strange Talent of Luther Strode #1-6, The Legend of Luther Strode #1-6 and The Legacy of Luther Strode #1-6, the hardcover will hold the entire, hyper-violent, visually arresting and darkly hilarious and thoughtful series.
Filled with the witty writing of Jordan that propelled the tale of Luther Strode, who upon studying the Hercules Method develops inhuman strength, speed and other bizarre abilities that are both strange and terrifying, the series was illustrated by Moore, whose artwork was stunning from the start and only improved into more playful, more convention-bending imagery as the series progressed. Sobreiro’s colours make this artwork pop off the page, creating some of the most visually breathtaking fight sequences I have ever seen committed to a comic book page.
The press release from Image Comics follows:
PORTLAND, OR, 08/14/2017 — Fan-favorite writer Justin Jordan (SPREAD, THE FAMILY TRADE) and artist Tradd Moore (Venom, All-New Ghost Rider) deliver the complete, critically-acclaimed LUTHER STRODE series collected into one hardcover volume for the first time this October in LUTHER STRODE: THE COMPLETE SERIES. It will collect THE STRANGE TALENT OF LUTHER STRODE #1-6, THE LEGEND OF LUTHER STRODE #1-6, and THE LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE #1-6.
“Luther sent away for the Hercules Method and it changed his life. I sent Luther Strode away to Image, and it changed my life,” said Jordan. “Fortunately, that worked out a lot better for me than it did for Luther in the book. It’s amazing to see the book that started my career as one hardcover edition, and even for people who’ve been with us the whole journey, there’s tons in here never seen by anyone but me, Tradd and Felipe until now.”
Moore added: “It’s an honor and a joy to have our whole series collected in this incredible hardcover format, and I can’t wait to share it with readers old and new. Prepare your eyes for a BLOODBATH!”
Luther Strode is an average teenage nerd until he sends away for The Hercules Method, a bodybuilding course that promises to give him the body of his dreams. But the powers he unleashes make him a target for a murder cult as old as mankind, cost him almost everything, and take him across the world in the fight to take back his life.
LUTHER STRODE (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0324-9, Diamond Code JUL170750) will hit stores on Wednesday, October 4th.
