Synopses & Reviews
Alan Moore follows his Eisner-Award-winning "The Story of the Year" Supreme script with "The Return", presented here in its entirety for the first time. Moore (Watchmen, From Hell) is widely acclaimed as the best writer in comics, and his superior talent and imagination are on full display in his work on Supreme: The Return.
"What makes Supreme more than just another retro regurgitation of comics' golden, silver, and Mylar ages, however, is the dizzying felicity with which Moore juggles the various strata of superhero archaeology. Supreme is Moore's big dig, a Möbius-strip time warp looping endlessly between superhero comics' hypermuscular present (female breasts are bigger and better than ever before, too) and their earlier, more modest, naive, and charming incarnations." Richard Gehr, The Village Voice
"[T]his is a marriage of two qualities usually mutually exclusive in superhero comics, intelligence and fun; Superman should be in stories this satisfying." Booklist
