    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. Read Full Review

    This week's issue just brought the action and at the end of the day that's what this series is all about. I love the sadistic cat and mouse game Jack likes to play but I love watching him throw knives even more. I also got a kick out of Petra's over the top cursing. Almost every word was sh*t F*ck but I loved it. As much as I love Justin Jordan's story I have to say without Tradd Moore the series would feel empty. Tradd Moore's unique drawing style lends its self to the story and makes the action sequences that much more fluid. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Binder and Petra is being hunted by Jack. May 15, 2013

    With a grounded and humorous script, stunning visuals, and overwhelming amounts of unparalleled action, Luther Strode's adventure has yet to let me down. There's only one issue left, but I'm sincerely hoping Jordan has detailed plans for a third volume up his sleeve. And if not, I hope the overwhelming amount of praise I've seen for this book will motivate him to make some! Oh, and Tradd of course needs to stay on the book. I can't imagine a Strode story without his signature style. Anyway, if you've been enjoying the series, you won't be surprised when you love this issue. If you haven't been following along and you're a sucker for action, go read the first volume and catch up immediately. Simply put: Luther Strode is fantastically awesome. Read Full Review

    The Legend of Luther Strode is oft overlooked but should be given pause and consideration. This is book is a non-stop action ride with enough heart and toughness to rival anything else on the shelves. Pick it up and enjoy the ride. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Henderson May 17, 2013

    As the penultimate issue of the series, Jordan and Moore really bring their A-game to bring a lot of action and violence, as well as a lot of heart and humor, to the issue. Characters live and die, but no matter what they all feel entertaining and purposeful to the story thanks to the great writing talent behind the book. Yet even thought the issue is full of violence and action, it never fails to connect to the humans elements of the characters. If Jordan and Moore can keep this up for the finale, this has shaped up to be an excellent series. Read Full Review

    IGN - Melissa Grey May 15, 2013

    As much fun as The Legend of Luther Strode had proven to be over the past five issues, it is undeniable that there might not be quite enough plot to go around. The interminable fight scene that feels like it's gone on for twice as many issues as there in the entire series is somewhat resolved though if it weren't for Trad Moore's masterful visuals, the issue might have felt a little thin on meaty plot. It's easy to overlook the book's shortcomings when Moore serves up such a vibrant visual feast of richly saturated colours and kinetic line work. Hopefully, next issue will see the perfect blend of plot, voice and art that have all had their chance to shine separately if not all at once. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Jiumbus_Christ May 16, 2013

    The Legend of Luther Strode has now gone full tilt into a strange new world. Yet, the action never lets up and the emotional beats of the issue are much needed. Visually the issue is a delight, and the end of the issue is sure to excite fans for the finale. I have enjoyed the ride, and while this issue may not match the intensity of something like issue #2, the impeding conflict in issue #6 will surely blow the roof off the whole thing. This probably wasnt Strodes finest month, but the added depth is greatly appreciated here rather than the final chapter. Read Full Review

    . . $3.50, 22pgs. + 7 pgs. bonus. NO ADs!! . . . Jordan, Moore and Sobreiro continue to bring their blitzkrieg epic of violence. The pace is simultaneously fast but dlowd down in time, wonderfully simulating the slow motion perception that these enhanced being must operate at. The story and event are tight but the world and characters expand. Ultimately the writing is light but the artwork is intense, and loaded with detail. "Race you to hell, fatass."
