I ordered the Teal for this year, and I figured why not get last year too.  Here is my review of last year's DC Supershow Blue from Monteverde. My initial impression is that it is simply another iteration of Horizon Blue.  You can see from the comparison that they are very close in color.  This color was just as well behaved as the Horizon blue and had just as good of flow.  It didn't feather on any paper I have used so far.  I really like the color but I do feel like I doubled up on colors since I already have Horizon Blue.  On the bright side this may also be another one of those colors that is close to Parker Penman Sapphire.  I hope you enjoy the review.  I would love to hear what everyone thinks.  Thanks for looking.

Muttering "I do not need more blue ink, I do not need more blue ink, I do not need more blue ink...."

Thanks for the review.  And, well, not....

Thank you for the review.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Very nice comparisons, thank you. Blue has come a long way since the days of the ball point pen I was raised on. I’m glad.
