Cory Hamscher recently announced on his Facebook account that he wrapped up his stint on Supreme:
“Avengers Academy is wrapped. Supreme is wrapped. Con season is over.”
Corey also added the following image, presumably from Supreme #67:
Additionally, Erik Larsen posted the following on his Facebook account today, November 8th:
“After much consideration and a loss of forward momentum I’ve decided to keep Supreme 68 as a normal-sized issue after all. I’m flying solo. I’m writing, pencilling and inking Supreme 68. Chris Eliopoulos is lettering and it’s Steve Oliff on colors, as usual. This is my swan song.”
So in conlusion, it looks like Corey has wrapped up the art on Supreme #67 and Erik will be finishing up his run on the series with complete art chores on a normal-sized Supreme #68.
Cory Hamcher, artist of Supreme (written by Erik Larsen) posted a new image of the yet unnamed son of Khrome, a soon-to-be villain within the book’s pages. We have previously seen Larsen’s rendition of the son of Khrome on the upcoming cover to Supreme #68. Now we get to see Hamcher’s version from the interiors:
Erik Larsen announced on Twitter today that Supreme issue 68 will be his final issue of the series. Larsen also added some details on what to expect from his final issue.
The following messages were posted on Twitter by Erik:
“After much thought I’ve decided to end my run on Supreme with issue 68 and make it an 80-page giant. I can do more cool shit that way.”
“Supreme 68 won’t be all one big story there’ll be solo stories for Squeak, Sister Supreme, Lion-Headed Supreme and Original Supreme as well”
“The idea is to fully set the stage for whatever follows. To say: this is the world–these are the players.”
“Make no mistake, I had a ball on Supreme and
@robertliefeld has been extremely supportive and hands off. He’s let me run wild with it.”
“But the reality is–I have a million things of my own I want to do and I can’t do everything. Something had to give.”
Rob Liefeld also used Twitter to chime in on Erik’s plans and dropped some information that is sure to keep Cory Hamscher fans happy:
“Erik has my favorite run on Supreme to date. He informed me before Comic- con that he was finishing his run. Can’t wait for the trade!”
“Cory Hamscher is GREAT on Supreme. I would not leave him out of the picture unless he wanted to move on as well.”
We here at Dragonfan sure hope Cory Hamscher decides to stick with the book!!!
The Savage Fincast Podcast is pleased to announce that our seventh episode will feature artist extrodinaire, Cory Hamscher! As you probably know, Cory is working off of Erik Larsen’s rough layouts to pencil and ink Extreme Studio’s Supreme from Image Comics. Hamscher’s portfolio encompasses over a decade of work illustrating comic books for Marvel, Image, Devil’s Due, Chaos and Avatar Press. Cory’s career highlights include inking G.I. Joe (including the first G.I. Joe vs Transformers miniseries), illustrating a bunch of the Marvel Adventure titles, and inking titles featuring the X-men, Hulk, and the Avengers. Savage Dragon fans know him from his Thor back up story in Savage Dragon #150.
The gang from the Savage Fincast will be talking to Hamscher about how he broke into the field, his past work, how he connected with Erik Larsen and eventually landed the gig as artist of Supreme, and his thoughts on the Supreme series. In addition to having Cory Hamscher on the show, the Fincasters will be conducting their usual review of the most recent Savage Dragon issue (#180), discussing Larsen-related news, and chatting about anything else that tickles their fancy!
You don’t want to miss this one! Whip out your new Supreme and Savage Dragon comics and listen along as we go through the nitty-gritty details of the most trivial things in our favorite funny-mags as only the most obsessed fan could! Stay tuned! The episode will go live later this week!

Erik Larsen recently posted the cover to Supreme #67 on his Twitter account. It’s the story you thought they would never dare to print! The fight to decide the super-hero championship of the world! Get ready for Supreme versus Omni-Man!
The reviews for Supreme #64 are coming in and it looks like the critics are enjoying the first issue of Supreme written by Erik Larsen.
Here’s a few excerpts from the reviews and links to the full review:
Cape Town Community
“I loved this. Everything you need to know about Supreme is in this issue. He’s a dick and the only thing that matters to him is that he’s the number one bad-ass. What I also love is how simple the story was. The Supreme title over the years as been revamped more times than DC Comics, it’s also been over 10 years since Supreme had an ongoing and that starred Alan Moore’s Supreme, so its been close to 20 years since Rob Liefeld’s Supreme had a story. So its all together possible that fans were going to get stories of Rob Leifeld’s Supreme learning what happened to his world and blah blah blah. But Supreme #64 was so well executed Supreme knows what we know, so once again its a clean slate. I don’t know where the book will go from here but the possibilities are endless. So says my Sight-Supreme.”
“It can’t be easy to pick up where Alan Moore left off, but Erik Larsen did a great job of picking up his unfinished story arc and running with it. This is a comic that is action packed from the first page to the last… I’d definitely recommend this comic, and I’m interested in seeing where Larsen takes his idea of the unleashed “Jerk Supreme” in the upcoming issues.”
“The art is solid, with Cory Hamscher’s finishes successfully distinguishing the numerous versions of both Supreme and Dax, and doing an admirable job of channeling Liefeld in the face of “Mean” Supreme. The layouts are very obviously Larsen’s, and at first glance, you might even mistake the finishes for his – but that’s not a bad thing. I was always a bigger fan of Liefeld’s take on a megalomaniacal Superman than of Moore’s thinly veiled Silver Age Superman, so I’m looking forward to the direction that Larsen takes the character now that he’s out from under Moore’s run, and is free to unleash his trademark carnage on the reborn Extreme Universe.”
Knuckle sammiches now served in gorgeous color! Compliments Cory Hamscher and Ross Hughes.
Cory Hamscher shared the inks for the cover to Supreme #65 via his Facebook today! Looks like Super Patriot is getting a knuckle sammich buffet courtesy of Supreme himself!!
Cory says: Not sure if this will be a variant cover or used as the second printing cover if #65 sells out like the previous two issues. Anyways, here’s my cover for Supreme #65, colors imminent…
Awesome stuff!! Naturally we’ll post the colored version as soon as we get our hands on it!
Here’s a recent commission that Cory Hamscher drew of Supreme. Cory is the artist for Supreme that is working off of Erik Larsen’s layouts. For more about Cory, see the interview we conducted last week here.
