The Authority, Earth's last line of defence, has performed godlike acts protecting the planet - defeating ancient gods and fending off inter-dimensional invasion forces. But their brave acts haven't always endeared them to those in power... particularly in the USA. Now the president has hatched a nefarious plan that could very well shatter the team by attacking its most vulnerable point - their very humanity. Far from solving his problem, though, the plot's repercussions could very well destroy reality...

Human on the Inside is a beautiful collection. This hardback edition has first class grade paper stock - glossy colour throughout. And, for the quality of the material included, that's a huge bonus.

Ben Oliver's illustrations and Wendy Broome's colour work, really do scream out for a broad canvas. Thankfully that's just what we get - even down to the fact that the speech bubbles seem to have kept to the bare minimum.

Highlights of this collection include the fact that we get to see Engineer without her liquid technology (there's even a little romance for her in the air) and a very chilling bondage interrogation scenes with Swift.

Whether you're a fan of The Authority, or just someone looking for a great read, this is the collection that you've been looking for.
