Yes, Warren Ellis and artist Tula Lotay are bringing Rob Liefeld's Supreme back to Image Comics.
Image Comics announced the new series, Supreme: Blue Rose, coming July 23, 2014 in a press release Monday. It will reimagine the property, but writer Warren Ellis maintains that he'll be honoring what came before.
"One day I woke up with an idea, that came out of nowhere, for how to extend this most strange and storied of 'analogue' properties into a new space. A new floor on top of Alan Moore and Rob Liefeld's house,” said Ellis. “And, since I had some time on my hands that year, I emailed Image, and we got my friend Tula Lotay involved—and her work will be a revelation to people."
Image's press release also went a little more eclectic and cryptic, reflecting Ellis's style, with this somewhat poetic teaser of the series:
"You are not dreaming.
We are trying to communicate with you.
Local reality has been reinstalled.
Things have gone wrong.
The revision has corrupted.
Finding Ethan Crane is your supreme priority.
We are speaking to you from the ultimate bunker within the structure of multiversal time.
Do not trust Darius Dax.
We are all going to die."
