    I don't know what this iteration of Supreme is going for or if it even has a clearly defined agenda. In a lot of ways it feels like Ellis just doing what he does and writing what interests him, but playing with someone else's world to do so. I do know that it has my full and undivided attention because these issues aren't long enough to sedate my appetite. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Aug 19, 2014

    Go get this. Get both issues and get lost in this trippy adventure that's full of mystery, beauty, intelligent dialogue, and gorgeous pages of artwork that you have to see to believe. My list of favorite comics changes every time I read a new one, but Supreme is something I know will stay with me a long time after I have read it. It will be something I pass onto friends and have conversations about. It will be a part of my life, and that's what the most powerful comics are capable of; they can jump off the page and become a part of us. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Elvis Dutan Aug 20, 2014

    The grounded and the fantastical. It always seems to be a challenge nowadays in knowing exactly how much of either should go into a reboot, sometimes too little or too much of either can seem like cheating out for either half of the readership. Blue Rose has all but squashed those worries as of the final close of this installment, which not only brings another ally to the fold (Twilight of Professor Nights entourage) but also hints at another Supreme villain in the mix. Ellis and Lotay are hitting a great stride and I hope it carries over next month, for this is something that can be supremely great. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Zach Wilkerson Aug 21, 2014

    “Supreme Blue Rose” continues to be an absolutely anomaly. Ellis and Lotay have come along to revive a seemingly lost franchise, so soon after the last maligned attempt, literally out of the blue. The result is such a massive departure, even for a series known for massive departures. Whether the long and winding trail will eventually pay off remains to be seen. However, “Blue Rose” certainly stands as an immensely compelling and gorgeously drafted comic book. Read Full Review

    Have you read the issue prior to Supreme Blue Rose #2? Do yourself a favour and start there before you tackle this issue. It's dense and beautiful, but will almost certainly frustrate you as you experience it. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Newell Turner Aug 24, 2014

    As itmoves into weirder, denser material, it become obvious that Supreme Blue Rose is going to be a mystery that unravels slowly and screws with our heads while it does. I can't say I'm terribly invested in any of the characters right now, but my curiosity has been piqued and I want to see where this story leads. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Warren Fitzpatrick Aug 18, 2014

    Does the story come to a climax?Nope, but again, I didnt mind. This is the second movement of a larger work that is clearly building toward that satisfying moment. Its marked piannisimo, meant to lull you into comfort while forcing you to lean forward in your chair to listen closer to the subtle nuances of both the blended music and word. So who should buy this? If you love action, this wont be your thing. But if you love quiet stories that draw you in, I would daresay you cant go wrong with this issue. As for me, Ill probably wait for the trade so I can get a better sense of the overall work, but I honestly have never said that about anything else by Ellis. And that, more than anything else, should tell you all you need to know. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - King Jan 16, 2015

    Tolay continues to blur the line between reality and fantasy along with time and space by refusing to confine herself to a damn panel, which in tandem with the vividness of the colors makes this comic read like one huge drug trip (it's pretty awesome). This is another knockout issue by a team making waves through time and space, and with the elements, plot devices, and characters explored, indicates that we're only seeing the tip of the iceberg.

    Supreme: Blue Rose continues to intrigue, as though there may have been a little too much going on, it does have me enticed for more. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Aug 21, 2014

    In the end, "Supreme: Blue Rose" #2 is a book that you're going to buy in the immediate time frame for the art; Lotay's pages are just amazing and I want lots of comics drawn by her. As for the story? Once some more issues are released I suspect that this one will read a lot better. Until then, though, just keep reminding yourself how fantastic the art is. Read Full Review
