First Prophet, then Glory, then Bloodstrike. Now the final title of the relaunch of Rob Liefeld's Extreme Studios is out, Supreme...

The art is horrible. I just read it, and there are many week points: Diana Dane's facial expressions sometimes don't match what she's saying, Suprema looks too cartoony; and in Daxia, when Dax is aboard Darius Duck, the couple allegedly chasing them is actually drawn from an angle that looks like they're already ahead of them. Sloppy, sloppy art.

The story also didn't do much for me. I expected more. I always thought 'Revelations' would be some mind-breaking, game-changing twist; instead the Daxes just discover the Supremacy exists and there's going to be a huge fist fight. Must be the first time Moore disappoints me. Even Bradrock Vs Violator was funnier and smarter than this.

Also, Eric Stephenson's words at the end fill me with dread. First of all, any person who praises Liefeld's version gets absolutely no benefit of the doubt from me. But to say that they're trying to go back to that version, when Supreme was this simpleton who solved everything with his super-duper muscles? To praise that kind of shit storytelling when Alan Moore turned Supreme into an intelligent character who used brains and panache to win? It's pathetic, just pathetic.

Well, thanks for printing Moore's last Supreme story, even if it wasn't worth the wait.

In fairness to the artist, though I don't know why I should be fair, a lot of the art on the original run was much like this. It wasn't all Chris Sprouse and Rick Veitch! To me, this looks exactly the way I'd have expected the issue to look had it been published when it was originally intended to be.
