ARC Review: Supreme: Blue Rose

Supreme: Blue Rose
Supreme: Blue Rose by Warren Ellis

Release date: July 14, 2015

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Supreme: Blue Rose is a story based on alternate universes, or something like that. The universe constantly resetting itself, and these versions of people around that don’t match every revision The Supremacy is a bunch of people who can see through this revision, and recall past versions. That’s all I gathered from this extremely confusing story. Even by the end, I didn’t know what the red-head (forgot her name) does, and what actually is the reasoning behind the revisions. And that Professor Night thing was really weird, though, in a meta way.

What drew me in about this book, at least to request it, was the cover and the description. I was like – oh cool. The reality was that, though the lineart is pretty good (very talented sketcher, I must say), the coloring of the graphic novel is quite, well, vibrant. I don’t know if it is because it was a galley, but there were these faint blue lines criss-crossing all over the page, which were sort of ruining the artwork. If it was intentional, to lend the overall hyper-realistic/illusionist feeling, I would say it didn’t really have a positive role in that direction. It didn’t really fulfill my expectations after that beautiful cover.

Received a free galley from Image Comics via Netgalley; this does not influence my opinions or reviews.
