COVER SHOTS: The Best From Image Comics' April 2012 Solicitations

Image Comics have their foot planted on the gas pedal and April 2012 shows no signs of slowing. Supreme returns with Alan Moore's final tale on the character, Bryan Hitch's own America's Got Powers launches, along with Secret, a new series by Jonathan Hickman! Making sure the new releases don't hog all the glory, these four hot April Image covers are out for their pound of flesh too!

COVER OF THE MONTH: CORY HAMSCHER - SUPREME #63 Supreme is all those Superman stories you always wanted but an icon like Superman could never get away with. Imagination is in silver age quantities and by the looks of this cover getting more cosmic by the second. Welcome back big guy!

Image says: "REVELATIONS" The legendary Supreme returns! ALAN MOORE's final SUPREME tale is the ultimate jumping on point for new readers! The triumphant return of Image Comics' most powerful hero!

As Supreme romances Diana Dane he takes her on a tour of the Citadel Supreme and tells all of his innermost secrets just as Supreme's most hated nemesis, Darius Dax, makes a most unfortunate discovery: the key to defeat his abhorred adversary! It's most mind-blowing cliffhanger in the history of comics!

Write: ALAN MOORE Draw: ERIK LARSEN and CORY HAMSCHER

    Sounds interesting. I'm always up for a good Superman expy (emphasis on GOOD), it's just that Image Comic's track record has, to my mind, been less than stellar. Still, with Alan Moore on board, who knows? I'll give it a shot.

  2. I'm always up for Superman-esque stories too Pensol, Mr Majestic, being another that was a pretty good read.

    Moore was doing brilliant things with Supreme when he last wrote the character, so even if this is just the opening arc of this book, to tell that last tale he never got to, it should be worth the coinage!
