Thanks Mr Moore, again.,
This review is from: Supreme: Return v. 2 (Paperback)
I read the TPB of Supreme last year and finally got around to reading this the other day. Although I really enjoyed the first one I found the constant shift to golden era/silver era comic styles a bit annoying. The novelty soon wore off and I found it slowed the pace of the story.
Supreme's Return features this a lot less (as the background is really all set up now and so there's hardly a need to do it) and it's all the stronger for it.
Moore is firing effortlessly here and I was often reminded of the Tom Strong stuff that is such a joy to read.
It's funny and touching without being horribly sanctimonious or dated, characters play with the archetypes of the superhero/sidekick/female hero/the loved one/super pet/the nemesis etc. which is Moore's forte. A very enjoyable read that made me smile constantly, laugh out loud occasionally and feel very satisfied when read.
Thanks Mr Moore, again.
