Jordan said in a statement that Luther Strode remains one of his favorite things that he has ever worked on and getting the chance to bring it to a new audience as a film is really exciting beyond belief.
He added that especially since Allnighter is dedicated to staying true to all of the foundations from the tone to the mythology, and of course, the kinetic action exemplified by the artwork of Tradd, that people have loved about the comic.

Eric Stephenson, the Image Comics Publisher and Chief Creative Officer added that The Strange Talent of Luther Strode is the type of pitch that every publisher dreams of work by newcomers so anxious to make their mark that every page practically vibrates with indomitable confidence.
He added that when he first got a look at L.S. as a blind submission in his inbox, he was bowled over by the sheer audacity of what Justin and Tradd were creating, and it was an automatic green light. It is going to be exciting to see how this awesome series takes shape in another medium.
The Strange Talent of L.S. made its debut in the year 2011, and it centers on the titular L.S., who gains superhuman abilities and a bloodlust. It was followed by two sequel series, one of which was titled, The Legend of Luther Strode in the year 2012, and The Legacy of Luther Strode in the year 2015.
High schooler L.S. 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.
The Strange Talent of Luther Strode is produced by co-creators Tradd Moore and Justin Jordan, as well as Allnighter’s Dinesh Shamdasani, Hunter Goranson, and Amanda Kruse. Jordan will also be writing the screenplay.
