The Reviews for Supreme #63 Confirm it’s a Hit!

The reviews for Supreme #63 are rolling in. It looks like it’s a hit, with many critics and fans eager to see how Erik Larsen moves forward with the title.

Here’s a few excerpts from various reviews and links to the full review:

Comic Book Resources:
(four out of five stars)
“Supreme #63 is a pleasant epilogue to Moore’s Supreme run, even as it serves up an excellent cliffhanger for Larsen to move forward. The sky was always the limit in Supreme, and I feel like it’s even more so in its final pages. Where is Larsen going to take Supreme? Thanks to Moore, the answer is clearly, “Wherever he can possibly imagine.” This is an excellent way to depart a series, even as it provides a final chapter that I didn’t realize I had been missing.”

Newsarama:
“As good as Moore’s script is here, a lot of the credit for this book’s success needs to go to Larsen and Hamscher for their ability to match Moore’s ambitious script with visuals that rival the work of Gene Ha and Zander Cannon with Moore on Top Ten.”

iFanboy:
“Written over a decade ago as the penultimate issue for Alan Moore’s second story on Rob Liefeld’s Superman analogue Supreme, Supreme #63 is very easy to pick up (as marketed) yet at the same time a fairly good conclusion to Alan Moore’s run on the character. While the door is left wide open for Erik Larsen to go in any direction he wants (this clearly is not a definitive ending) it reads as a good comic that is simultaneously a fond farewell to characters and a world while equally an excellent starting off point.”

ComicBooked.com:
Erik Larsen and Cory Hamscher’s art is a perfect fit for Moore’s playful and whimsical take on Supreme.  The style captures that idyllic, almost childlike Silver Age tone, and the sci-fi wonder of locations like Supreme’s Flying Citadel.”

Comic Book Revolution:
“Supreme #63 is a really fun start for this series. It is light on action but that is to its benefit. This issue is more concerned with having some fun and letting things build up. It plays around with some fun super villain concepts and it shows off how cool it is living in a house owned by a super hero. If you want a fun read then Supreme #63 delivers nicely.”

Deer in the Xenon Arc Lights Blog
“So yes Supreme is a very, very smart book but don’t let that scare you away; the meta-commentary is never really there for cerebrality, it’s for comedic and plot purposes only. Supreme will have you laughing in amazement and riveted by it’s freshness, you’ll be ripping through pages not stopping to scratch your chin and when the final page comes you’ll be dying to know what comes next, not to write an essay about form. This is the enjoyably insane Alan Moore that I’ve so missed and so it’s a shame that it has taken this book so long to arrive, but it’s here now so you’ve no excuse not to read it. Erik Larsen has his hands full following this run, good luck to him.”
