The comics industry is full of Superman knock-offs. Every creator wants to be able to tell their own version of the story, but they’ve got to change all the details if they want to avoid lawsuits from DC.

Supreme is one such knock-off who probably would have fallen into obscurity if Alan Moore hadn’t taken over the series to write a story so epic we had to split it up into our first two-part episode!

Join us as we get this story going with Supreme #41-48.
