The Strange Talent of Luther Strode
Over the past few years Image Comics has developed a reputation for putting out numerous titles of all different kinds, running the gamut from love stories to superhero tales to crime. Some have definitely worked (Chew, one of the best books out there), some not so much. A few months ago we got the first issue of a mini-series that has definitely proven itself as one of the titles that simply WORKS. It’s The Strange Talent of Luther Strode. It’s a funny, it’s violent, it’s over the top, and we love it. Here’s the solicit of the first issue:
STRANGE TALENT OF LUTHER STRODE #1

Luther Strode is just your average nerd until he sends away for a bodybuilding course from an old comic book, one that works a whole lot better than he ever imagined. His newfound strength and strange talents make school a lot easier, but they’ve also caused some very, very bad people to take a very, very keen interest in him. Things will never be the same for Luther Strode — if he survives.
On Wednesday we’re getting restocked on the first three issues (which would bring you up to current) and we highly recommend you check ‘em out!
Finally, we found an excellent video trailer for the series. Not unlike the series itself, the trailer is a little more for the mature audience. Check it out after the jump.
