Finding Ethan Crane is your supreme priority. Do not trust Darius Dax. We are all going to die.” Supreme: Blue Rose re-introduces the central Image Comics character Supreme, in a multi-layered and often hallucinatory mystery presented by New York Times bestselling writer Warren Ellis and acclaimed new artist Tula Lotay in her astonishing graphic novel debut.

Thoughts, and would I recommend?
Thank you NetGalley and Diamond Book Distributors for provided me with a copy of this for review!!!
Hmmm…. I’m not exactly sure how I felt about this. As an artist, I’ll start by commending the artist behind this graphic novel for the superb visuals, all of which were inspiring to an amateur such as myself. The interesting colors and shapes really work to bring the graphic novel to life. As for the writing itself….I was honestly confused during the majority of the novel. The beginning was a dream, which is normally cringe-worthy for me, but in this case, I guess it worked. I just wish that the storyline didn’t jump around so much….but at the same time, I liked the jumping. It all came together in the confusing end……and the last page was strange, but I THINK I understand what happened, and it kind of explained everything else. It’s a very interesting novel. I read it all in one sitting, and I enjoyed it. I’d recommend it to people who are open to new, intriguing concepts and scientific thoughts.
It’s weird. It’s something that you simultaneously love and hate. It makes you think, and at the same time, it makes you want to forget. It’s deep, and yet it’s nothing.
Just go read Supreme: Blue Rose. Then you’ll understand.
