This book also scored a few extra points thanks to the posters that are in the main characters room.
Second, if you are a comic book fan who likes classic story lines, but with a more violent take on it, then go ahead and buy this now. This is the first (from what I have heard) book of a trilogy. This is the story of a young high school comic nerd who buys a mail-order magazine that is supposed to get you fit and all that (to stop the bully), but it is really a test to see if anyone posseses the talents of extreme control over the body, as our hero Luther Strode does.
(Minor-Spoiler portion) I really enjoyed that Luther struggles like in any other origin superhero story, to maintain his powers and to teach people leasons through beating up the bad guys. Trying not to kill anybody and be the "Ideal" superhero as he is a comic book nerd. But eventually he learns that wont work, and begins to start killing, and thats when things get VERY interesting.
The Art in this book is supurb. Currently Vol 2 is about to end next month, "The Legend of Luthor Strode", and as much as this one is an origin story, the next is more physical action after Luther as embraced his killer nature. There were some very sad moments, and if a book can make me feel emotional in any way, I take that as a sign of great writting.
Bottom line, BUY THIS BOOK!!
If you haven't read this yet, you should!
The mix of violence and action with well-fleshed out characters with stakes makes Luther Strode something to check out. The price point on Amazon makes Luther Strode a must-buy. Great art, great story.
