The Legend of Luther Strode 3 (February 2013)

267786 20130227123404 largeAnd now Luther gets himself a supervillain. Not bad gimmicks, very creepy the way Moore draws him. It’ll probably be a great looking issue next time. Of course, this time was great looking too. Only nothing really came of the story.

The situation at the end of this issue is the same as at the beginning. Damsel in distress. The whole issue just circles around until Jordan finds a way to put the girl in danger again. There are some great fight scenes, some humor, some character development for the old guy… but there’s no story. It’s the third issue and it seems like Jordan has done nothing but show off what his artist can do.

Not what his characters can do, what the artist can do. Luther’s once again barely a character. He’s reduced to witty lines, almost always in response to someone else’s wittier line.

It’s severely uninspired.
