Writer Justin Jordan (Spread, The Family Trade) and artist Tradd Moore (Venom, All-New Ghost Rider) created a seminal action series in Luther Strode and now that powerful series is getting a definitive collected edition in hardcover from Image Comics. Landing in October, Luther Strode: The Complete Series 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.
Jordan gives a heartfelt reflection on this milestone:
Luther sent away for the Hercules Method and it changed his life. I sent Luther Strode away to Image, and it changed my life. 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 adds: “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!”
If you’re not familiar with the series, this is an excellent opportunity to get the whole experience as one unit. 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”. If you are familiar with the series, you know it deserves this nice hardback edition and it would look great on your shelf.
Luther Strode: The Complete Series (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0324-9, Diamond Code JUL170750) will hit stores on Wednesday, October 4th.
