Just incase you missed it, Luther Strode was the theme this past week over at THE SINDIECATE! Head on over there and check out all the work from that wildly talented lot (Ryan Ottley, James Harren, Jorge F. Munoz, David Lafuente, and Mike Choi). But be warned! The sheer might of the artwork may cause you to burst into fire.

So yeah, one more time… THE SINDIECATE

Also, just as a heads up, I have a twitter now. Oh, Lord. So, to those of you who have one, feel free to find me on there. @TraddMoore

ALSO, I was lying about the "and MORE" part in the title. I just thought it made the journal seem more enticing.
Alright, everybody, so I'm part of something new now. Oh, and something AWESOME, I might add!

BRAND NEW NOSTALGIA is an art blog/collective put together by the ever so talented Andrew MacLean where we'll be posting art based on a different theme each week. All of the artists involved are unbelievably good and I'm beyond flattered to be a part of it. I really can't shower enough praise on these guys. So yeah, go check out our TUMBLR and/or DEVIANTART to keep up with BNN!

Oh yeah, and this week's theme is ROCK!
Check it out, everybody!

The Strange Talent of Luther Strode Returns to Press For a Second Printing

Berkeley, CA – 10 October 2011 – THE STRANGE TALENT OF LUTHER STRODE, writer Justin Jordan and artist Tradd Moore's six part series from Image Comics, has proven to be even more popular than anticipated and has sold out at distribution level. While the debut issue of this hot new comic may still be available through some comic book retailers, first printing copies are limited to current stock. A second printing is underway and will arrive back on shelves next month, appearing alongside the second issue.

Diamond Code: AUG110403

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 new-found 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.

So, it's been a long time coming, but THE STRANGE TALENT OF LUTHER STRODE has finally been announced by Image comics! If you've been following me for a while, you'll know that writer Justin Jordan approached me for this pitch about 2 years ago now. Crazy. We finally found a colorist, the ever impressive Felipe Sobriero sobreiro.deviantart.com/ , last year, sent the pitch in last summer, got picked up in November, and have been working like dogs ever since. We already have multiple issues in the bag, so this book is going to be consistently awesome AND consistently on time. Get ready for October everybody, LUTHER STRODE is a comin'.
