The Strange Talent of Luther Strode Heads to the Big Screen

The Strange Talent of Luther Strode

Allnighter has announced that it is adapting the Image Comics series The Strange Talent of Luther Strode by Justin Jordan and Tradd MooreAllnighter’s Dinesh ShamdasaniHunter Gorinson, and Amanda Kruse will produce the film alongside co-creators Jordan and Moore. Jordan is currently at work adapting the comic and will pen the screenplay.

The subject of near-universal critical acclaim and multiple sold-out printings, The Strange Talent of Luther Strode cemented writer Justin Jordan and artist Tradd Moore alike as two of comics’ fastest rising stars upon its debut in 2011 and led both to best-selling turns at the helm of Marvel and DC’s biggest franchises. In the process, Jordan and Moore reunited for two equally successful follow-ups – 2012’s The Legend of Luther Strode and 2015’s The Legacy of Luther Strode – to complete the genre-colliding trilogy that first rocketed them to superstar status.

The series splices together the common DNA of the superhero and slasher archetypes for a brash and bloody adventure that is equal parts comic-book escapism and action-horror hybrid.

High schooler Luther Strode was always a little bit less than average – soft-spoken, skinny, and, more than anything, terrified that his estranged father would one day return to torment him and his mother once more. But that ended the day that Luther discovered “The Method” – an improbably old text hidden between the comic books and ragged paperbacks at his favorite used bookstore. But The Method is far more than it seems – and, as its ancient techniques rework Luther’s body and unlock the strange talents buried deep within, he will find himself transformed into a near-perfect physical specimen imbued with incredible strength, startling new abilities…and a killer’s instinct for violence that he can’t quite seem to shake. When The Method’s masters arrive to observe Luther’s progress and draw him into action, he’ll be forced to make the ultimate choice: embrace the monster he was intended to be…or use his newfound power to protect the people – the classmates, the teachers, the neighbors – who never protected him when he needed them the most.

Jordan’s other film and television projects currently include an adaptation of his comics series Spread with artist Kyle Strahm, while Moore’s 2019 series with writer Ales KotThe New World, is being adapted as a feature film for Warner Bros. Pictures.

TEN GRAND #1

story J. MICHAEL STRACZYNSKI

variant cover BILL SIENKIEWICZ

32 PAGES / FC / M
$2.99

Joe Fitzgerald was a mob enforcer until the day he met Laura, who convinced him to leave that world behind.  Before quitting, Joe agreed to one last job, little realizing that the man he’d been sent to kill was deeply involved in demonlogy.  He survived Joe’s attempt and came after him, fatally wounding Joe and killing Laura.  As he lay dying, an angelic force (who may or may not be what she appears) pointed out that where she is going, he can’t follow, and where he is going, he wouldn’t want her to follow.  But if he will agree to work for them as a different kind of enforcer, they will bring him to life and keep on bringing him to life every time he is killed in a righteous cause.  The reward: for those five minutes of death, he will be with Laura again.  Would you endure an eternity of pain and death, dying over and over, to be with the woman you love for just five minutes each time you died?  Most people might say no.  But Joe Fitzgerald isn’t most people.

A bold new era begins with the long-anticipated return of Joe’s Comics, the imprint that brought you MIDNIGHT NATION and RISING STARS.  All-new stories from J. MICHAEL STRACZYNSKI (Babylon 5, Jeremiah, Thor, Amazing Spider-Man, Superman: Earth One) return in 2013 with an action packed line up featuring everything from superhero action to supernatural thrillers. Watch this space as a new wave of exciting, challenging and experimental stories begins!

“COMPLEX MESSIAH” Part Three

Who Is In Control? The Man? Or the Monster?

“Complex Messiah” is an epic new story arc, serving as a jumping on point for new readers, as well as the next phase in Spawn’s evolution. As the worldwide fervor around Jim Downing’s miraculous gifts continues to grow, the darkness that lives within him begins to threaten his newfound fame.

Meanwhile, a small group of online friends gain insight into their understanding of the Hellspawn, slowly piecing together a dangerous new theory about the world’s newest “messiah.”

And, somewhere in the shadows, an old enemy lurks.

Also featured: Detective Craig Rowand came to New York looking for clues. That journey brought him face-to-face with evil in the form of the demonic temptress, Hel. Haunted by the encounter, a good man’s steady spiral into madness begins here.

“A DANGEROUS FAITH”

Long ago, the valiant Templar destroyed themselves through a vicious civil war, allowing the bloodthirsty crusade of the tyrant king Icarus to destroy mouse culture. Yet the inspiring tale of the young mouse Karic promises to restore the fractured Templar and overthrow the mad king. But while some accept Karic as a prophecy for good, still others see his rising legend as an omen of evil.

Thus begins the climactic chapter in the epic saga of hope and despair, of tragedy and triumph, and where every secret will at last be revealed.
