More About the Author

Hola, I'm Justin Jordan and I write The Strange Talent of Luther Strode for Image Comics.

And other stuff that I can't tell you about just yet. Yes, I'm a horrible tease.

About me: I'm from the wilds of Pennsylvania, and I've been everything from a lumberjack to a librarian, but I've settled on writing because it doesn't require an axe, which was a flaw in both lumberjackery and librarianhood.

In addition to Luther Strode, my comics work has appeared in a dozen or so anthologies, most of which aren't on Amazon. Hey, I warned you I was a tease.

Format: Paperback
WARNING: This book was Superboy #20-#25, Superman #25, and Teen Titans Annual #2. Not Superboy #20-#27. This book has three arcs running thru it. The main arc by Justin Jordan was fantastic. It has all the stuff I like adventure and mystery and a cliffhanger in the end that makes me want to by the next volume. Now for the bad stuff in the book, the other arcs the majority run in other books. The Krypton Returns arc will come out in Feb. of 2015. The good side of this arc is they put the Superman #25 in it giving it an ending. If you read my rant in Superboy volume #3, I asked why the didn't put the end in. All the Batkids having Batman #17 in there Volume #3's. So now Superman #25 is in this one and there is much rejoicing. The final arc is in Teen Titans most of the time. It is covered in Superboy #19 and Teen Titans Annual #2, Superboy #19 is in Volume #3. See were the craziness happens. Krypton Returns is in Superboy #0, that is in Volume #2 . The opening arc ( which is great) starts on Superboy #18, however, Justin Jordan makes it a great trade to jump in. He was seamless

So here is my thoughts you can either buy 4 more trades(Superman, Action Comics, Supergirl, for the Krypton Returns. The Teen Titans for the Jon Clark arc) or wait until Feb. for Krypton Returns . Buy The Teen Titans Volume #4 for the Jon Clark arc when it comes out. Me I am just buying the Superboy trade. The fact that there was just way to many "other arcs" that took away from the trade causes me to give it 3.5 stars, but the first 5 comics at the beginning were great. I would recommend buying the book.

Format: Paperback
I was rather disappointed by this volume. As other reviews will mention, there are too many arcs. The first picks up the final issues of volume three regarding Doctor Psycho, and that arc is great. Despite most tying into the Superman "Psi War" arc, the story delivers with fights, mental battles and more Krypto, but ends with a plot point with no resolution. It either happens in another book, or the next volume. The only downside to this tale is the art. One issue has four pencilers alone, and for even the better of this assortment give subpar work.

The next arc is from the Superman Family event "Krypton Returns." This is the point the book goes sour. The plot is a bit confusing, more so than in the case of He'l on Earth from last volume. It also jars with said cliffhanger above, while ending with another one for poor Kon. The final story from the Teen Titans Annual I felt must occur out of sequence and probably before the middle arc, as it ends with a third cliffhanger for Kon. You need the fifth volume of Teen Titans-which a long way off from release-to figure out most of this tale, which sets up the fifth book of this series as well. Of course, this final tale also stems from Forever Evil as well. Basically, too many tie ins and artists hurt this book.

The story was a bit over the place times, who no real grounding as to who Connor is. His future in the dcu seems to be shady at best. Still love the character despite everything and gonna keep ready his book
