The Authority has beaten invincible foes and insurmountable
odds time and time again. So taking over the government of
the United States would be an easy assignment... or so they
thought. They never counted on Paul Revere and the Sons of
Liberty inciting the American populace into rebelling against
them. Can the authority survive internal struggles long enough
to stop a revolution guaranteed to come to a calamitous end?...
- Book One is
one hell of a cracking Authority collection. Midnighter
has a bit of a dilemma. Thrust into a near future, an older
Apollo informs Midnighter that he must do something drastic
in order to save the planet. If he doesn't do as Apollo suggests
then his, as well as all mankind's, future will not be worth
living. But is this really Apollo? Or someone pretending to
be him? Midnighter must decide, and he doesn't have very long
to make his move.
script shifts along at a cracking pace, although I was amused
to see that Swift was incapacitated again. If she's not being
held hostage (as in Human
on the Inside) then she's out sparko, spending
most of the time in a hospital bed. And the art is up to the
usual standard we've come to expect.
was also great to see a more human side to Midnighter. While
he still mopes around for a great deal of the time, at least
he gets to do something important other than skulk around
in the background saying very little and acting all macho.
fans are in for a treat. This is well worth owning.
