Image Comics has announced that Warren Ellis and Tula Lotay are reintroducing fans to Supreme and the Supreme Universe in July, and shared an early look at the first issue.

Ellis resurrects the SUPREME universe beginning with an ethereal dream sequence that warns the unemployed investigative journalist, Diana Dane, to beware of Darius Dax and ending with a proposition for adventure and intrigue from Supreme himself, “Have you heard of a blue rose, Ms. Dane? Blue roses do not occur in nature. My practice tends to specialise in blue rose cases.”

Sounds interesting, and the visuals by Lotay add to the dreamy feeling set up Ellis.

Supreme really appealed to me in that it passes the Bechdel test with flying colours,” said Tula Lotay in a prepared statement. “I’ve never spoken to Warren about this, but it’s a story with very strong female characters, the women shine through and that’s a pretty rare thing to see in sci-fi. I think it’s far from your typical superhero story, a million miles from the original Supreme. It’s definitely strange, it’s a sci-fi mystery with a Lynchian edge. I’ve fallen in love with these characters and I hope the people picking this series up can get into the strange world we’ve created.”


Supreme: Blue Rose #1 lands at your LCS on July 23, 2014 and has a $2.99 cover price.
