5. The Strange Talent of Luther Strode

The Strange Talent of Luther Strode explores the ultimate power fantasy: a scrawny geek becomes a muscular, powerful superhero. However, things don’t go so well for Luther Strode, who finds that with great power comes a whole lot of trouble. Justin Jordan pens this tale, and it’s filled with quick wit and dark humor. Tradd Moore and Felipe Sobreiro create stellar art; Sobreiro’s colors, in particular, pop and create a glorious blood bath. It’s a funny tale that has a gruesome sense of hilarity and creative violence. Think of it sort of like the inverted tale of Peter Parker, if things went just a little different for him.
