    Well, I mostly lurk (I'm the lurking type - Lovecraft would loved me) but I thought I'd squirm out for a bit to talk about my comic coming out from Image in October. The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, written by me with art by Tradd Moore and colors by Whitechapel's own Felipe Sobreiro.

    It's a fun, funny ridiculously violent book that's sort of a superhero/horror hybrid. Here, have a look at the cover and preorder thinger:

    OCTOBER 5

    $2.99
    Luther Strode is just your average nerd until he sends away for a bodybuilding course from an old comic book, one that works a whole lot better than he ever imagined. His newfound strength and strange talents make school a lot easier, but they’ve also caused some very, very bad people to take a very, very keen interest in him. Things will never be the same for Luther Strode…if he survives.

    If you dig it, I would not object to spreading the preorder thinger around, or assaulting your favored comic book retailer with it.

    Fairly long interview with Tradd, Felipe and I at AICN. If you want to know more about the book or my career as an Anti Stripper, this is the place to find out.

    Thanks, dude! I really hope you dig it.

    It was sort of Luther Strode day at Multiversity Comics:

    If you interested in how Tradd works and his influences and inspirations, they did three pieces on him. Read them, they, like Tradd, are pretty awesome.

    Tradd Art

    Holy crap, is there any end to Tradd's stuff?

    The cover for issue 02 was recently released, along with the rest of Image's November '11 solicitations. Here it is, sans-logo:

    Hey Justin, this series looks great! Beyond excited to see it come out , will be picking it up. I'm a writer myself and was just curious as to what your experience/process for pitching this series to image was, and how it got green lit. I'm preparing to pitch a series here soon, so any insight you can offer would be much appreciated!
