"You are not dreaming. We are trying to communicate with you. Local reality has been reinstalled. Things have gone wrong. The revision has corrupted. 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.

Collects Supreme Blue Rose #1-7
Supreme: Blue Rose is a very interesting story that will leave you both confused and wanting more. I have to admit, I was confused quite often while reading through it, and I found myself asking if there was something I was missing. Was there a prequel before this to help readers understand easier? I still don't know the answer, so, if you happen to know it, let me know in the comments for sure. 

Though despite the rising confusion, it's not hard at all to continue reading on. There have been plenty of times where a story would confuse me to the point where I just didn't want to continue because it made no sense at all, but this was different. Though I was a bit in the dark, I still went on, hoping for answers. In the end, when questions are answered, more questions rise. It's like a never-ending mystery. 

As for the art, wow. The artist, Tula Lotay, does a wonderfully amazing job with the art. I absolutely love their style. It's both unique and beautiful, like eye candy! The style is one I have definitely not seen before and it flows really well with the characters and the story. 

As a whole, the story was great. Yes, it had some holes (I feel), but it didn't get in the way of the enjoyment I got out of it. I absolutely can't wait to continue reading on. I'm looking forward to it... There's more... right?
