The official description from Image:
Supreme is out for blood and Suprema is our last hope – or is she…?
Featuring a guest star you have to see to believe!
From the the harsh treatment of criminals to an excellent guest appearance this tale is an engagingly fun read that will keep fans full of eager anticipation throughout its quick pace. In my previous review I had complained about some script missteps that made that release feel like an unbalanced story from the 90s, thankfully this latest issue shirks those shortcomings as it embraces a brutally awesome romp.
Erik Larsen delivers a solid script that yields a somewhat thought out narrative, that simply relishes in the violence of this new Supreme. It’s not a perfect tale, but the quick pace keeps the tongue-in-cheek moments to a minimum which yields a fairly good comic book. Even though it’s not a completely original narrative to see a superhero go dark like this, the series writer handles it in a way that is simply engrossing as the dialogue works just enough magic to make the story make some kind of serviceable sense.
Erik Larsen and Cory Hamscher handle the art and they both do a good job realizing this corny but fun world. The characters themselves are deformed but detailed, as violence and talking ensue in an orchestrated symphony of both carnage and temperament that will keep fans flipping the page to see what happens next.
The latest issue of Supreme offers fans many solid reasons to just sit back, relax and enjoy. This joyful little jaunt back in time is full of good art and solid story telling that makes this release a worthwhile purchase for any curious readers. Recommended.
