Dual Review: The Legend of Luther Strode #5

Rather than fight over this title each month, Dustin and Kevin have decided to play nice and both review this issue! Does that mean they’ll skip talking about it on the podcast? Baby steps people, baby steps. Since they agreed on a score we’ll be skipping the usual group/dual scoring so here’s a quick blurb from Image and then onto the reviews! Luther has been Bound. Petra has become Jack's new friend. Binder gets a surprise from an unexpected source. And the world burns down around them all.


This issue continues the intense pace the previous issue exhibited so well by adding to the awesome action.  In the finally of the issue, Tradd Moore once again steals the issue with epic skills. The final fight in the burning house looks nothing short of amazing.  Not only that, there is a splash page that will demand your attention!! I know I’ve said this before but the combo of Sobreiro’s colors and Mr. Moore art is seriously the BEST in the business! Congratulations gentlemen you’ve done it again.



We’re in the middle of an epic battle and suddenly the love story comes into play! You’d think that it was horribly misplaced, but it’s not. It’s perfect and actually builds the drama. Petra has always been a favorite and I’ve enjoyed her role in this story arc. Moore lets loose yet again on this issue and it’s no wonder they’re only planning a trilogy for this series, highly intensive art! I’ll be sad yet again to see this series conclude and I sincerely hope that people are still paying attention to it. If you’re not then you’re literally missing one of the best comic series in years! I have no idea what we even have left to say about this series and the reviews will eventually just turn into recordings of the two of us giggling and saying, “and that one part!” “I know right!” Yeah, this is a great series.

Score: 5/5
