If you aren't reading The Strange Talent of Luthor Strode then you're missing out.
I had seen the banners for this book every time I would go and check out the Image boards and one day decided to check it out just for the hell of it. Apparently, the first issue is on it's second printing and rightfully so. If I had to describe the book it would be like Kick-Ass mixed with Brit? It's been a really fun book so far and wanted to let you guys get in on it.
Here's the opening splash:
BTW, the artist (Tradd Moore) is pretty bad ass. I get a JRJR/Paul Pope vibe from him. Check out his art at http://traddblog.blogspot.com/

I am a fan.
Faces are a little wonky sometimes but over all it's all gravy.
Oh yeah, really digged the first issue. I'd say he also has some Ottley in his style.
He has a deviantart, too :http://tradd.deviantart.com/

It is! Well, the 6 issue arc finished and I thought it was pretty solid all in all. Apparently there will be another arc comic out this summer. I'm not sure if Jordan had always planned that or he was contracted to do more due to the overwhelming response. Eitherway, more Luther Strode is fine with me.
Planned that way. The first issue of ‘Legend of…’ should hit in October.

I thought the ending was allright I guess.
The biggest peeve for me is it feels allot like what Wya is already doing.
I think If I liked that style more I would enjoy this.
Definitely isn't bad by any means, and for a first time out this guy probly should get some kind of award.

That's why I liked it so much. As far as I know they're both first timers and being so my expectations were pretty low. I was impressed with what was delivered.

Enjoyed this series immensely. I felt like, for a somewhat similar story, it was so much more successful than a book like Kick-Ass. Obviously Kick-Ass didn't actually have powers, but I still got the same vibe from the teenage-hero protagonist and the hyper-violence.

If I would have read this before reading Kick-Ass (or anything else by Mark Millar) I would have liked it alot more. The death of his friend and mom would have felt really impactful and less...not cliche, but almost normal? Also, the death of his mom being his Neo moment was also less awesome because it felt so familiar.
Art is GREAT, get this kid on a Body Bags remake or something. About the end, I knew that was coming since that dude tied up in chains in the beginning never showed up anywhere else, I was thinking "what's the deal with him?" Epecting him to be something like luthers real dad or whatever.
