The Luther Strode trilogy by Justin Jordan (SPREAD, LUTHER STRODE) and Tradd Moore (LUTHER STRODE, All New Ghost Rider) warps up with a double sized issue of the LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE on April 1. The story debuted in The Strange Talent of Luther Strode (the book which put basically put Jordan on the map) and continued in The Legend of Luther Strode.
For five years, Luther Strode and Petra have been on the run. Now the time for running is over, and the Murder Cult is going down. The road to Cain starts here in the double-sized debut of LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE #1.
“This is what we’ve been building to. All those questions? They get answered here,” said Jordan. “This is Luther Strode taken worldwide. We’re going bigger, crazier and bloodier than before, and there’s no guarantees anyone is making it out alive.”
Readers first met Luther Strode in THE STRANGE TALENT OF LUTHER STRODE. Just an average nerd, Luther Strode sends away for a bodybuilding course from an old comic book—one that ends up working a lot better than he ever imagined. Though his newfound strength and strange talents make school a lot easier, they’ve also caused some very, very bad people to take a very, very keen interest in him.
In the follow-up, THE LEGEND OF LUTHER STRODE, Luther became more than a nightmare for the evil men in his city… he became a legend. He found himself hunted by a legendary killer and ended up with a measure of redemption and a new mission in life: stop the people that made him what he is.
LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE takes Petra and Luther across the world, from Russia to Hong Kong to some place east of Eden, hunting for the man who started all of this: Cain himself. The story ends here.
The double-sized LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE #1 will land in stores on April 1 and can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code FEB150498.
