Once again, Alan Moore does a great job of reinventing the superhero comic. This time around, he has fun with the idea of continuity within comic series by inventing a thinly-veiled (and purposely so) stand-in for Superman. As the title suggest, the hero's name is Supreme, and one of his main concerns throughout the graphic novel is trying to figure out where all of his memories went and why so many of them contradict each other. Complementing Moore's writing, the artwork draws on styles from many eras, including the Golden Age art of early Superman comics and the Jack Kirby-esque art of the Silver Age. An intriguing read for comics enthusiasts.

Kirk Hey, Marc! It's been a while. I was just browsing through the reviews for Supreme after posting one and thought I'd drop in and say hi. Hope all is well.
