Reviewer’s Comments:
The Strange Talent of Luther Strode comes to a satisfying conclusion. The issue brings all of the plot to a conclusion, and Strode has revelations about his own life as a human being.

The issue starts off with Luther and his love interest finding their friend Pete dying. The issue then quickly moves to the current center of controversy: Luther’s mom chained up. A man (apparently sent by Cain) has kidnapped Luther’s mom, and he wishes to lure Luther for the two of them to talk. Luther has no interest in talking to the man, and his first attack is presumed by the man. His mother is grateful he has come, and Luther reassures her he will save her. However, in the midst of battle, tragedy strikes for Luther. He accidentally kills his own mother. This anger pushes him to finishing off the man once and for all while the man taunts him about what he truly is. The tragedy that strikes Luther and his natural tragic nature propel him forward to finally coming to the conclusion that he can save his love interest from the beginning of the issue.

Writer Justin Jordan does a good job with the characterization of the characters and story overall. He obviously has a long-term plan for his story, and here’s hoping Image lets him do that. Beyond that, the artist Tradd Moore does a great job. He has a nice swiftness to the action but gives each character unique traits which adds a nice feeling to the comic. Overall, these two men receive a gold star for this comic.

GRADE: A-.
