If you haven't jumped into The Strange Talent of Luther Strode yet, do so if you can still find a copy of issue one. Last issue, we saw protagonist Luther Strode suddenly go from geeky loser getting picked on at school to destroying the school bully with one punch as he suddenly starts developing powers. Readers also got a peek at another subplot featuring an older guy named "The Librarian" with captives that seem to be superpowered as well, though his motives and plans have yet to be revealed.
I'm having a lot of fun with this book. The slightly cartoony-looking art combined with the over the top violence is perfectly suited to the writing. The interaction between the cast is great with some genuinely funny moments. Justin Jordan and Tradd Moore are doing a good job of showing a lighthearted beginning to Luther's story while foreshadowing something heavier going on in the background. I'm sure the Librarian's plan, whatever it is, is bound to come to a head soon and shake things up for Luther Strode.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane
Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
