    Making all of this work like a well-oiled machine is Tradd Moore's incredible artwork. He has a sense of style that allows him to build a world full of unique characters and rich settings. All of the humor in Jordan's script would be lost without Moore's expert hands making sure the visual beats match the verbal ones. Funny aside, one page shows Luther's friend daydreaming about superhero fighting while Luther himself is haunted by a memory from his childhood. It is a quiet, emotional moment that shows what sets Luther apart from a normal person, and it is a wonderful reason for anyone to check out this comic. Read Full Review

    In an old school comic book kind of way it handles the subject of being a victimized; be it bullying or domestic the book handles it in way that keeps a relatable anchor even though it's just a comic book.

    When this series is over I am sure this issue and fourth one will blend together as the turning point in the story. The trouble is that this issue, alone, doesn't contain a lot of development beyond getting Luther into crime fighting mode. It's a good issue in what has been a great series so far. I am looking forward to seeing how this story plays out over the second half of the mini-series. Read Full Review
