    Supreme Blue Rose #6 is a beautiful book in its narrative, art, and concept and one I look forward to reading every month. The exposition heavy story may turn many readers off, but if you're looking for a smart and stimulation read, you'll find the payoff here is too large to ignore. Read Full Review

    As much as I loved Supreme Blue Rose #6, this is where I check out from reviewing the series. That's not to say I won't continue loyally reading it every month, but I'm not sure there is much more to say. I recently gave it my vote for 2014's best new reboot, but after a few years, I think we'll look back on it as something much, much more important to the medium. I don't think I could give it much higher praise than that. Read Full Review

    The most amazing part of this for me is that I was never a Supreme fan originally. In fact, I'm not a very big fan of Rob Liefeld's and would not have picked this book up had it not been written by Warren Ellis. I am glad I did as I think I would have sorely missed out on a great, entertaining story. Read Full Review

    In it's final moments, Supreme: Blue Rose rises back up to the level of quality that it's first few issues promised, whether the finale will be as good remains to be seen but the mystery and promise is stronger than ever and the end promises to be anything but dull. Read Full Review

    The finale next issue may finally tie some things together, but it probably won't altogether clear up the hazy fog of questions. Ellis' story is too insubstantial in the concrete sense and much too abstruse in its cosmology and the mechanics of its reality, yet it continues to have plenty of urgency and forward motion. Despite its obvious frustrations, "Supreme Blue Rose" is an engrossing read with its own rewards. It has a unique atmosphere and is able to fold both espionage and superpowers into what can only be described as mysticism. If one is able to dispense with conventional expectations, the payoff might be satisfying enough. Even if one gives up on Ellis' reworking of the Supremeverse, Lotay's art is worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    My previous encounter with Ellis work was Freak Angels and while that series went off the deep end at times too, it always had a central dilemma to work through which was resolved (somewhat) by the series end. While I had the benefit of being able to read Freak Angels from beginning to end, I worry that this series may lack the focus of the former. This is hard sci-fi with emphasis on the hard. Not only have we a mystery as the central theme, we have stories within a story as a supernatural detective begins to break out of his fictional world and into the real one, while we visit a pocket dimension populated by humans from another universe and a physicist who is becoming a reincarnation of an individual named the Probe and urgh my head hurts! A lot of plates are up in the air here and Im wondering how long they will all keep spinning. Read Full Review

    This is the penultimate issue of Ellis & Lotay’s trippy meta-fictional masterpiece. And what an exhilarating read, filled with jaw dropping revelations on character and plot. It's all starting to come together (though some mysteries are still to be had). That cover is a beauty and serves the story as well. The interiors are gorgeous as ever, especially a full page spread that features Evening Primrose.
