You are not dreaming. 
We are trying to communicate with you. 
Local reality has been reinstalled. 
Things have gone wrong. 
The revision has corrupted. 
Finding Ethan Crane is your supreme priority.

Do not trust Darius Dax. 
We are all going to die. 


Back in the original days of Image Comics, Rob Liefeld’s Supreme was one of the central characters, a Superman analog who later enjoyed a fantastic run with Alan Moore at the writing helm. And now, with other Extreme Studios character completely rehabilitated (Glory, Prophet) Supreme is getting a new look with Warren Ellis and Tula Lotay (ELEPHANTMEN, The Witching Hour) taking on SUPREME: BLUE ROSE.

“One day I woke up with an idea, that came out of nowhere, for how to extend this most strange and storied of ‘analogue’ properties into a new space. A new floor on top of Alan Moore and Rob Liefeld’s house,” said Ellis. “And, since I had some time on my hands that year, I emailed Image, and we got my friend Tula Lotay involved—and her work will be a revelation to people.”


It’s worth noting that in addition to her busy freelance career, Lotay is also one of the show runners for Thought Bubble, one of the gems of the Caf circuit. So she is a busy, busy lady.

The series debuts in July.

    Fingers crossed. I think of Ellis as mainly a fairly grim writer but with this and Project Superpowers, maybe he’s looking into a different approach after all?

  2. This cover illustration is gorgeous.

  3. Interesting news. These new comics based on Liefeld properties have either been wonderfully unorthodox (Prophet and Glory) or rote (Bloodstrike, Youngblood). I thought for sure that the new Supreme comic would be in the latter category after seeing the initial cryptic promo.

    Fortunately, I was wrong. The artwork looks incredible and Ellis is precisely the kind of ambitious writer that a comic like this needs. I look forward to checking it out.

    For Supreme, rote would be fine if it were emulating Moore rather than Liefeld.
