The Strange Talent of Luther Strode 5 (February 2012)

It’s another very fast issue. Jordan gets in some humor with the girlfriend and the sidekick, which is good. Luther’s not in a jokey place, but the sidekick definitely has a good scene for it.

This issue ties directly to the first one? Remember those passages of time I mentioned Jordan having problems with a few issues ago? It was totally unclear, from the framing device, Luther was still in high school. While it works fine narratively, it shows another place an editor should have done his or her job.

Luther is a little too confusing for its cover price. Jordan might think it’s a cute move, but a monthly comic can’t expect too much….

It’ll play great for the movie deal though.

The issue ends with another cliffhanger; it’s decent but not great. Jordan all of a sudden has made the series very restricted.

It’s a mildly disappointing development.
