Monteverde DC Supershow Blue was debuted at the 2018 DC Pen Show, and since then has become part of the regular lineup. I love bright blues, and this one is a gorgeous blue! Thanks to Monteverde for sending it over for review.
DC Supershow Blue is a medium, vibrant blue.
In large swabs you can see some of the coppery-red sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was a bit of bleeding and feathering in the larger nib sizes.
I used a TWSBI Eco Transparent Blue with a medium nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a wet flow.
Overall, it’s a gorgeous bright blue and has some shading and sheen too. It does feel like a more vibrant version of Monteverde Ocean Noir, so you probably don’t need both.
