They are the answer to the world's woes,
the ultimate response. They are the Authority, and no one
messes with them. Now, Jack Hawksmoor, Apollo, the Midnighter,
Swift, the Engineer and the Doctor are about to get a wake-up
Authority: Earth Inferno and Other Stories is a strange
collection of stories which only really works if you are familiar
with the six superheroes and how they interact. If you are
not then you are really going to need a crash course.
collection kicks off with Earth Inferno which sees
our planet fighting back. While The Authority have spent years
fighting for mankind, our home has decided enough is enough
and sends tidal waves and erupting volcanos in order to wipe
our species of the face of the Earth. Some of the artwork
in this story is breathtaking - and there is a scene set in
New York in which the Twin Towers are destroyed by a huge
tidal wave, which in retrospect is quite scary.
is also a wonderfully thought out story called Isolation
which revolves around the beautiful Engineer. This
is a good story for those not familiar with the character
as it gives the reader a little more background into this
mysterious woman. Her longing in this story is just to have
a normal sex life.
final story, Orbital, features Jack Hawksmoor and,
as Isolation before it, it gives the reader a little
more background into what makes him tick.
collection tackles issues, including homosexuality and erotic
awakenings, in a mature and thought proving way. The art work
is wonderful and the stories have a lot of hidden depth.
you are a real comic fan then you will want to add this to
you collection. Powerful stuff.
